    is there a way to view in cydia only the apps/tweaks that i installed? it would be useful for me if i want to remove them, but forgot the app's name...

    what about those that i already deleted?

    thanks in advance.

    Open Cydia and go to Manage>packages and there is all you have installed.

    Unfortunately, while Cydia does a good job of keeping track of the apps currently installed (as iFrog said), I've not found anything to keep track of Cydia stuff you've tried and subsequently deleted.

    So, I just keep an Excel file of all the app/tweaks I've downloaded (separate tabs for installed and removed). I keep it updated and I have notes about the app/tweak in case I ever need to refer back to it.

    But, then again, I could be a little obsessive-compulsive, so YMMV. :)

    YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary

    Means that you may get different results than I with the topic at hand. As in, what works for me may not necessarily work for you ... and if it doesn't, I'm sorry it didn't ... but since I said YMMV ... it ain't my fault it didn't work for you.

    Or - that's how I mean it. :D
