The iOS app store is packed with around 2.2 million apps, more than enough for anyone. Or so you would think. The problem with these apps is that they are either limited, tempt you into in-app purchases, or you have to buy the app in the first place. The answer lies in modified apps and games but, until now, the only way to get these was to jailbreak. Now you don’t have to.
Top iOS App Store Alternatives:
Now we have many different third-party app stores for iOS users. Most of these were originally released as Cydia alternatives but have evolved to become cool alternatives to the official store.
Before you Start
When you install any of these alternatives and try to use them, you will face an Untrusted Developer Error. To fix that, make a note of the developer name in the error message:
- Open your iOS Settings app
- Tap on General and go into Profiles and Device Management
- Find the developer name in the ios profiles list and tap it
- Tap the Trust button and close Settings – the error message will no longer appear.
These are the alternatives we think offer the safest and best experience for users:
Undoubtedly one of the most popular alternatives, the TweakBox app, is also one of the most comprehensive. Offering thousands of apps and games, here, you can download tons of modified games. There are also game emulators, streaming apps, screen recorders, and much more, all free. TweakBox admin is incredibly active, adding more content regularly and updating the app.
Released in 2017, the Ignition Fun app is fast growing in popularity. Recently, the developers have revamped the app, making it even more user-friendly and adding thousands of apps and games that were never available before.
AltStore is relatively new and, for now, is somewhat limited in what it offers. Developed by Riley Testut, it was build using a unique developer technique that means Apple cannot revoke the certificates. You do need to use your computer to install it, and more apps will be added in future updates.
Another relatively new addition to the third-party app store lineup, TweakDoor offers a fairly comprehensive range of third-party apps, games, and modifications. All the most popular ones are there, and, with each new update, the developers are gradually adding more.
TopStore App offers lots of different apps and games to download. There are plenty of third-party apps, including tweaked stock apps with extra features, modified games with all restrictions lifted, and a few Cydia tweaks too, including a few popular game emulators
iOS Haven App
iOS Haven App is a little different from all the other alternatives, in that you don’t need to install it on your iPhone or iPad. Instead, the app store is installed on your computer, your device connected, and any app or game you want is transferred to your device. It offers some of the most popular tweaked apps and games and lots of other cool content to choose from too.
Another new third-party app store, iPABox, was only released in 2019 but has already proved itself as a great alternative. It offers thousands of tweaked apps, modified games, and a fair number of jailbreak tweaks too. The big difference with this app is that it works on devices with a jailbreak as well as those without.
Our final offering is another very popular alternative. AppValley app offers thousands of tweaks, apps, and games, all for free. Here, you can download popular modified stock apps, such as Spotify++, YouTube++, WhatsApp++, and Snapchat++, to name just a few. You can also download games such as GTA, Minecraft PE, and others; all restrictions lifted. There are game emulators, screen recorders, and much more, and everything has been categorized so you can easily find what you want.
There you go, some of the very best alternatives, not just to Cydia but to the official iOS app store too. Every one of these installers is free and is safe to use – try them, if you don’t lie one, simply delete it and move on to the next one. One of them will offer the games and apps you are looking for.
Don’t forget to share this with your friends and followers, and do tell us if you found another alternative that you think is just as good.
