When it comes to downloading apps and games , it used to be that Cydia was the place to go to. But right now, with iOS 10 download released and PPHelper patched up, not everyone is in a position to jailbreak and that means missing out. Or it would do if we didn’t have HipStore to turn to. HipStore is similar to jailbreak apps like Install0us and AppCake as well another non-jailbreak app called vShare but it is far more comprehensive, containing millions of Apps, Games, Ringtones, HD Wallpapers and much more besides, all of which that can be downloaded .

Now that iOS 10 is out, the next thing we are waiting for is a jailbreak but that is not likely to be anytime soon. Both Pangu and Taig are investigating the new firmware to see what they can do but this takes time and, for those of you who have updated beyond iOS 9.3.3, HipStore is the next best thing.
To Download HipStore, you need to follow a number of steps, all of which are detailed below. It isn’t the same as simply heading to iTunes and downloading an app but you do not need your computer and you can delete it at any time. One other thing that puts it ahead of many other apps is that, rather than just being available in Chinese, it can be downloaded in a number of different languages.

Fix HipStore Not Working Issue :
HipStore is a great app installer but it is guaranteed to crash within 7 days. This is in no way anything to do with the app installer itself, rather it is down to Apple. Because they do not sign the app certificate and do not allow the app into the app store, they do not consider HipStore to be a valid app and will revoke the certificate very quickly. To stop this, you need to install Anti Revoke VPN tool. This will hide the app certificate from Apple so they cannot revoke it and you can continue to use HipStore for as long as you want. Click the link below to get more details and a step by step tutorial on how to download and use it.
