With the distinct lack of usable jailbreaks right now, a good percentage of the jailbreak community is unable to modify their devices with mods and tweaks from Cydia [ext link] and they can’t download apps like Extensify [ext link], TweakBox [ext link], and vShare [ext link] anymore, to get their paid games and apps for free. Apple has just pushed iOS 10.3.3 download [ext link] out and that will make the wait for another jailbreak even longer. We have managed to find an interim solution for those who can’t jailbreak or who don’t want to jailbreak and it’s called HipStore.

While HipStore doesn’t have the same level of functionality that Cydia has it is a good alternative that will fill the gap for now, providing access to paid content and some apps and tweaks. You can’t get it from the iOS app store but we are going to show you how to download it.

It is true that HipStore does not provide the same experience that Cydia does and it certainly should not be treated as a permanent replacement for it. However, it does offer enough functionality to make it a decent alternative for those who don’t want to go through with jailbreaking and for those who simply can’t right now.
