Installous Alternatives

How to use iFunbox to Download Cracked Apps

Ever since Installous has been gone, the Cydia community has been on the search for its alternatives. They have found others such as AppCake and vShare, and they also found iFunbox. iFunbox is very similar to other installous alternatives as you can also download cracked IPAs. However, the app is a program designed to be used on a Windows or MAC OS computer.

Now, I have been trying lots of alternatives for Installous and I’ve found that iFunbox is a very good replacement for installing cracked apps and games. But this is just the first of many things you can do in iFunbox for your jailbroken device. Today we will provide help on how to use cydia to download cracked apps.

iFunbox Features

– The software is free to download on both MAC and Windows.

– The software has a backup feature installed which saves your installed apps for restoration purposes.

–  It can also be used as a file manager to browse and manage files on your iPhone, iPod or iPad, for extra control of your device.

– It allows you to install unsigned .IPA files (obviously)

–  You can use your iOS device as a USB to copy music, photos and videos from the device to the computer and vice-versa

As you can see, iFunbox is much more than software used to install cracked IPAs. My favourite feature is that you can use it as a file manager.
