    Can I see Cydia apps under general - usage - show all apps

    Currently, this is not possible. Are there any Cydia apps or tweaks that can accomplish this.

    Not all Cydia tweaks put a line in the Settings app. Generally, only those that have various settings do so.

    The best way for you to see what Cydia apps you have installed is to go to Cydia and look on the "Installed" tab. That will list all your tweaks, plus provide you with descriptions.

    I have a followup question. I will be able to answer this myself after the next Cydia Purchased:

    The Ipad settings - general - storage, reports available space. Can I assume that Cydia Apps are not recorded and the free space will always be over reported.

    Yes, the Cydia apps are not recorded in this area, but, AFAIK, the free space will be accurate. The storage only shows the Apple stuff - but the GBs available will still show the fact that the Cydia tweaks are taking up space.

    Do me favor? Check me on this on your next Cydia download. I'm pretty sure this is how it works, but I never actually looked into it - and I'm willing to be corrected. :D

    I purchased and installed wifi booster, but am unable to answer the question. Before the install, Storage reported 53.8 GB available and 4.2 GB used. It reports the same storage after the install. As the new app is most likely smaller than 100 meg, I have no way of knowing whether the settings recognized it.
