Apple App Store
Most people know that Cydia came before the App Store way back in iOS 1.0.0.x and it was what inspired Apple to create the App Store. However, what else can be the best Cydia alternatives? Obviously, the Apple App Store. Although Cydia has thousands of apps and hundreds of Cydia sources, there are still some paid apps in App Store that you can’t find in Cydia.
We have spent a day to test all the Cydia alternatives available in the market. iNoCydia, Custom iOS and iOSEmulatorSpot are three unpopular apps. They don’t really host a lot of apps or games as expected. However, they work as Cydia alternatives in certain ways. You can use it but it’s at your own risk. Cydia is still the best way to download free apps. Use Apple App Store if you don’t feel like to jailbreak because App Store does provide tons of free apps and games too.
