Top 3 Installous Alternatives

A breaking news was dealt to the jailbreak community just yesterday, the Hackulous team has called it quits taking with them the popular cracked app downloader, Installous. That's right folks, with Hackulous repo taken down, you can no longer use Installous to download cracked apps. For most people, Installous is simply the most convenient and safest way to download cracked apps although it has its fair share of issues as of late. It gets the job done and highly accessbile which is why many people like it. However, Installous is not the only app of its kind. There are other methods for you to download cracked apps and now we will be sharing them to you. Here are the Top 3 Best Installous Alternatives.

vShare (aka App VV)

vShare Best Installous Alternatives Top 3 Installous Alternatives

vShare (aka App VV) is one of the Installous alternatives that have been gaining traction as of late, and with Hackulous closing down, one can say that its popularity will surely skyrocket. It's easy to see why vShare became popular in no time. The design of the app itself is quite sleek and then there's the fact that all cracked IPA files can be downloaded via direct download links. So this basically means that you don't have to wait around before you can download anything or deal with annoying captcha images. The download speeds are quite fast and the apps are auto-installed.

The only real disadvantage that vShare has is that it is made mostly in Chinese, which is clearly not catered to English users. However, finding apps is still pretty easy. To search for the app that you want, simply tap the magnifying glass icon and input your query. When the search results are in, just tap the Install button and that's pretty much it. You can download vShare by adding the following repository in Cydia:

http://repocydia.com/

Alternatively, you can download the IPA file from here. YouTube user spidermanwee415 has posted a video on how to install vShare, do check it out (note how he disabled WiFi and Cellular signals so he can use Installous to install the vShare IPA file):

ADVISORY: vShare is currently experiencing bandwidth problems which is likely due to the surge of visitors looking for Installous alternatives. According to their website, they will be upgrading their servers in order to accommodate the growing numbers of vShare users.

AppCake

AppCake Best Installous Alternatives Top 3 Installous Alternatives

While it is true that Installous is the pioneer application for downloading apps for free, it is not exactly the free of issues. Long waiting times, cryptic Captcha images, Invalid and Unavailable IPA errors, and many others are just some of the issues when using Installous. If you wish to do away with such errors or you just want to try out something new, then AppCake is one of the best Installous alternatives that you can get.

AppCake and CrackNShare Top 3 Installous Alternatives

Among all alternatives to Installous, AppCake is most likely the longest-running one. The developers are trying their best to keep the site running and updated. So in terms of stability, AppCake certainly has the upper hand. Unlike vShare however, AppCake is mainly created for English-speaking users. In fact, the user interface of AppCake is very similar to vShare, only purely in English. The apps are sorted by categories and popularity which is always good for app hunters. AppCake also has the distinction of not needing AppSync when installing or running apps. The repo address for AppCake is:

http://cydia.iphonecake.com

Unfortunately AppCake, much like Installous, hosts all its cracked IPA downloads in file hosting sites which means that there will be waiting times before you can actually download an app. AppCake is also riddled with ads which could result to an annoying user-experience. Overall, AppCake is a very solid Installous alternative that's worth considering.

iFunbox

iFunbox Best Installous Alternatives Top 3 Installous Alternatives

iFunbox is a 3rd-party used to manage, browse, transfer and manage files for iOS devices for Windows / Mac which have gained a good amount of popularity over time as a solid alternative to Installous. With Installous 5 not being fully compatible with iOS 6, iFunbox has become the go-to solution for users who don't want to deal with the buggy experience of using Installous on iOS 6 / 6.0.1.

iFunbox is now currently on version 2.0 which boasts a new enhanced user-interface which makes app management and installation a whole lot easier than previous versions. Other than your apps, you can even manage your other files like Photos, Music and Videos since iFunbox is also a general file manager. However, there is a clear evidence that iFunbox highly emphasizes on app installation. You can also use the software for discovering apps to be used for your iPhone. Apps are sorted in different categories like price, new apps, top paid and free apps, there are even special features like the top Christmas apps or top apps for runners.

iFunbox Best Installous Alternatives 0 Top 3 Installous Alternatives

There is just a misnomer with iFunbox that says "no jailbreak needed." Actually, in order to ideally use iFunbox, you will need to have a working version of AppSync. Of course, to have access to AppSync, you will need to jailbreak your iOS device. Sure, you don't need to be jailbroken to install apps which you have bought (with IPA files), but it is a different story when you want to run cracked apps. However with Hackulous shutting down, you won't be able to download AppSync using conventional means. TIP: You can download AppSync from other Cydia sources like Insanelyi.

Download iFunbox for Windows / Mac

And there you have it folks, the best Installous alternatives that we can find as of now. If you are rather down with the news of Hackulous shutting down, you will be happy to know that there are in fact existing alternatives to Installous. Give these apps a spin and see how you like it. If you have another alternative that is not featured in this post, please do sound off in the comments section and we will be updating the post accordingly if the information is good. Happy New Year everyone!!

    These alternatives are very slow, unreliable, and seems to fail every time you get 1/4 of the download done. Also time to time it crashes. I do not recommend Vshare and Appcake.

    Ok guys, help. I have iOS 6, I got cydia about a month ago and installed app cake and then vshare . The reason is – i download an app with app cake and app cake doesn’t turn on any mo. I delete it and install appVV, try to install fruit ninja and it fails to install it, crashes itself and doesn’t turn on any more after that. My question is: Why?!?

    if apple cancel cydia ..i will also cancel using their product coz iphone and ipad without cydia sucks like hell……thumbs up jailbreaker..

    •  
      Patrick Gumban1 year, 7 months ago

      Apple won’t be cancelling Cydia, because jailbreaking itself is legal and so is Cydia. They can however make it difficult to jailbreak iOS.

    •

      @ isaacAFRICA You thick fuck Apple cancel cyida do you even know what cydia is ?? LOL YOUR A DORK!!!

            Do any of you know your shit? If it wasnt for these hackers there wouldnt be a jailbreak for the public. Shut the hell up. Im pretty sure all you little kids dont know how to write a line of code or search for a bootrom dump to save your life. So stop talking like your the shit because you know what Cydia is. My 10 year old sister knows what Cydia is too so your not a badass because youre some know it all 11 year old

    •  
      Andrew1 year, 6 months ago

      Dude Apple would cancel Cydia in a heartbeat if they could. Cydia is a third party application injected into our iOS devices when the devs create a jailbreak application for us to utilize. Apple doesnt control Cydia they just try to make it extremely hard to hack their software. Apple will never cancel Cydia so no worries. Hopefully jailbreakers like MuscleNerd can help the jailbreak ongoing. So when iOS 7 comes out we can still hack it

    You can still use Installous to install IPAs if you just switch to Airplane mode, I’m sure most have already found this out though.

    •  
      Patrick Gumban1 year, 7 months ago

      That’s right, disabling your internet connection will let you install IPAs via Installous. :)

          True Ameriica didnt invent everything. But none of us here did either. It wasnt you or me it was someone else. But thats pretty arrogant since its only in America where iPhone jailbreaking is legal. It has been deemed illegal in many other countries. Alot of places in your precious Europe and Asia also deem it illlegal so I guess you guys invented no fun. Honestly I read these comment threads and its a bunch of little kids fighting on the internet. Go outside and use your fists like men and stop being babies

            exactly these haters trash America when in fact its there own third world country that deems these type of things illegal. hypocrite haters they talk crap about America then they all want to move here. get off the hate America band wagon, take a look at your own jacked up country. America did invent the cellphone before the Asians riped off the idea for there own profit,as with most modern tech.
