AppCake is another favorite and quite popular Installous alternative that users have been enjoying for quite sometime. If you haven’t heard about it, AppCake is a very-near clone of Installous that lets you download cracked apps from various sources.
Installing AppCake on your iOS device is super simple. In this quickie, you’ll learn how to install AppCake on your jailbroken iDevice, and then use AppCake to find and install cracked apps.
Disclaimer: We don’t recommend Installous, AppCake or any other Installous alternatives in any manner to Install.IPA files. AppCake is not affiliated with any website/developer mentioned in this post, and we don’t encourage app piracy. Developers put a lot of effort to create apps and what’s a dollar or two to spend on buying these apps? The only reason we post on these alternatives is to help users try out costly apps before they decide to purchase it. Under no circumstances should this be misconstrued as supporting piracy or piracy-related apps.
What You Need:
- A jailbroken iOS Device running iOS 5 or later
- An active Wi-Fi connection
Step 1: Jailbreak your iOS device if you haven’t done already (Quick guide to jailbreak your iOS device on iOS 5.1.1)
Step 2: Open Cydia and point to Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> Add. If you’re on an iPad, go to Sources -> Edit -> Add. Add this repo:http://cydia.iphonecake.com
Step 3: Once the repo has been installed, search for AppCake in the Cydia Search tab.
Step 4: If you’re on an iPhone or iPod, install AppCake or AppCake+. If you’re on an iPad, install AppCake HD.
Step 5: Cydia will complete the installation and you’re device will reboot. Make sure you tether it if your device runs iOS 6 (there’s only a tethered jailbreak so far).
Step 6: AppCake should be available on the Springboard now. Tap and enjoy.
How To Use AppCake
