When Installous stopped serving cracked apps to the jailbreak community, many felt sad and started searching for alternatives. And so we thought to provide a guide on How to Download AppCake from Cydia. Appcake is one of the best alternative for installous which gained a huge popularity from iPhone community. You can check this by reading the reviews of AppCake. We don’t post about anything until we try it. Appcake works really well with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
If you want to try AppCake on your device, the first thing you need to do is jailbreak it. Without a jailbreak you cannot Download AppCake to your iPhone on iOS 7 because it depends on Cydia. Even if you try to get the appcake.ipa file and directly use it on your stock iOS iPhone it won’t work.
Just to let you know AppCake alone is not the proper solution to Install Craked apps. you need to install another free cydia tweak known as AppSync which is available on same repo/source which you’re going to add below.
So, why do you need to Install AppSync, you ask? It’s because AppSync allows you to sync and install unsigned iOS applications directly from AppCake’s download list.
