While we all like to download apps and games from the app store, sometimes the cost puts us off. When we could install Cydia on our iOS devices, we could use the likes of AppSync, AppCake, and Install0us to try out the latest games and apps but PPHelper does not work on iOS 9.3.5 and there is no way to downgrade back to iOS 9.3.3 to get Cydia. Luckily, we now have the option of using HipStore, an app installer that is very much like those on Cydia but with one difference, you can use it without jailbreaking first.

HipStore [about] contains a whole host of paid games, apps, HD wallpaper, ringtones and other media content that you can download and try out . Then, if you like what you see, you can go ahead and purchase the app or game from the developer. With Taig and Pangu working hard on a new jailbreak, it is only a matter of time before one is released but, in the meantime, HipStore is a decent alternative to use. It isn’t quite so simple as downloading an app from the iOS app store but the following steps will show you how to download HipStore onto your iOS 9.3.5 device.

Method 3: Android Only
Android users tend to enjoy more third-party apps than iOS users do but they still cannot jailbreak, and they still cannot download much in the way of modified apps, iOS app store or Cydia content, nor can they enjoy paid apps for free. HipStore has been updated with support for Android so click the link below for more information and a download guide:
Fix HipStore Not Working Issue :
Because HipStore is not an official app and because Apple doesn’t sign the app certificate, it will crash within a week of you installing it. Apple revokes certificates for unofficial apps and this will stop HipStore and anything you downloaded from it working. You can stop this with one easy step. Install NessTool, a VPN tool that quietly protects the certificate and stops it from being revoked. Find out how it works and how to download NessTool [ext link] by clicking the link.
Popular HipStore Apps :
HipStore is a feature-rich app installer with plenty of apps to choose from. One of the most popular types of download is screen recorders and these are two of the best that you can download via HipStore:
