Install AppAddict and Get Cracked Apps for Free [How-To]

A few days ago, we have introduced a new solid alternative to AppTrackr and Installous called AppAddict for downloading cracked apps for free. Aside from directly downloading the IPA files from the AppAddict, there is actually an iOS app that works great for downloading cracked IPA apps. The app works very similar to the sorely missed Installous. With that said, this is a tutorial on How to Install AppAddict and Get Cracked Apps for Free.

Before You Proceed:

  • Of course, you need to have a jailbroken device first to use AppAddict and this guide.
  • For AppAddict to work properly, you need to install AppSync. Don't worry because the guide will also tell you the procedure.

Steps on How to Install AppAddict iOS App:

  1. First we'll need to install AppSync, so launch Cydia. If you have already installed AppSync, skip to STEP 8.
  2. Launch Cydia

  3. Tap the Manage tab at the bottom, then tap Sources.
  4. Cydia Manage Tab
    Cydia Sources 2013

  5. Tap Edit in the top-right corner, then Add that will appear in the opposite side.
  6. Cydia-Add-Source

  7. When asked for the Cydia/APT URL, enter the following:
  8. Add AppAddict Repo

  9. Tap Add Source. Cydia will then update its repository and will return you to the Sources list.
  10. AppAddict Repo Sources

  11. Access the newly added AppAddict repo and it should show you its packages.
  12. AppAddict Packages

  13. Install AppSync for iOS 6.0+ / 5.0+ depending on your operating system. Respring after installation.
  14. Install AppSync for iOS 6.0+

  15. We're ready to install the AppAddict app. Launch your web browser and point it to:
  16. Install AppAddict iOS App

  17. Slide to Install as instructed and the AppAddict app will now be installed into your device. To access the app, launch the AppAddict icon from your Springboard.
  18. Launch AppAddict App

Steps on How to Use AppAddict to Get Cracked Apps for Free:

  1. Upon launching the AppAddict app, you will be taken to the Categories page. To search for a certain app, swipe to the right and tap Search.
  2. AppAddict Search

  3. Search for any app that you want, for this instance we used Angry Birds as an example.
  4. AppAddict Search_2

  5. Click the exact app that you want from the results and you will be taken to the Description page.
  6. AppAddict App Page

  7. To access the download links, tap the Links tab and you should see several links from many different sources.
  8. AppAddict Links

  9. Just choose one host and depending on the file hosting, the interface should be different.
  10. Click Free or Slow download, unless you have a premium account. When free or slow download is selected you will either wait for a countdown, enter a Captcha or both until you reach the download link.
  11. AppAddict Captcha

  12. Once the download starts, you can view the progress by swiping down the top bar.
  13. AppAddict Download Progress

  14. After the download is finished, access the sidebar again by swiping to the right. Tap Installer.
  15. AppAddict Installer

  16. From here, you'll see all the IPA files you've downloaded. Click the IPA that you want to install, and select Install. Click Install again when another dialog box appears.
  17. AppAddict Install IPA

  18. You will be taken to the Springboard and you should see the progress of the installation. This should only take a few seconds and in no time, the app will be ready for your enjoyment.
  19. AppAddict App Installed

And that's how you install the AppAddict app and use it to download cracked IPA apps for free. As you can see, it works very similar to Installous. Hope you have found this tutorial useful.

    how does this compare to appcake?

      Patrick Gumban3 years, 6 months ago

      Well, AppCake has tons more apps compared to AppAddict although the latter is being updated on regular basis so you can see more apps coming in. However, I find AppAddict to be more stable. You can always use both and get the best of both worlds. :)

    can i transfer downloaded ipa files from computer to appaddict download folder and isntall from appaddict just like installous ?Thanks

      Patrick Gumban3 years, 6 months ago

      I just checked this for myself and yes, you can download the IPA to your computer, transfer it to AppAddict’s folder (under User Applications > AppAddict > Documents) via tools like iFunbox and install the IPA through the AppAddict iOS app. Hope this helps!
