Keeps Your iPhone Apps Secure with ‘Undeletable Apps’

Who would dare place a highly configured iPhone into the hands of a 5 year old? You’re liable to come back and see half of your apps deleted.

But if you had Undeletable Apps — A jailbreak tweak for the iPhone — you’d be able to rest easy knowing that your apps were there to stay.
That’s because Undeletable Apps prevents you from deleting your apps, even when in jiggle mode. How does it do this? Check inside for the full lowdown.

This is a simple jailbreak tweak with a magnificent outcome. Basically, Undeletable Apps removes the ‘x’ icon from your apps when they are in jiggle mode, protecting them from deletion.
Since jailbreak apps and stock iPhone apps like the clock and weather can’t be deleted anyway, this only applies to apps you purchased in the App Store.
The only entities that aren’t protected by this tweak are Safari shortcuts; those can still be deleted regardless as you can see in the screenshot above.

If there’s one thing I wish this app had, it would be a settings section to pick and choose which apps you wanted to protect. Almost like designating a franchise player on your favorite football team.
Other than that, there’s not much else to complain about here, especially since this tweak is free for jailbroken iPhones on the Cydia store.
