When it comes to jailbreak apps that users download, there is very little doubt that one of the most popular ones is Installous. Well, it is certainly understandable, especially when it allows a user to download and install apps which are normally found in the App Store, at no cost.

          I believe you can still download Installous from other Cydia sources like SinfuliPhone and HackYouriPhone. Or you can use a different app to replace Installous. Check out this Installous Alternatives post. Hope this helps! :)
