Cydia is very popular amongst iPhone & iPad users who want to jailbreak their devices to access all the hacked apps and modifies games.

Many people with jailbroken devices think of Cydia as the App Store which is used by people with non-jailbroken devices.

The problem with Cydia is that it only works on Jailbroken iPhone and iPads and people with non-jailbroken devices need an alternative to Cydia.

In this article, I’m going to show you a list of Cydia alternatives that you can use.

This list will also include package managers for non-jailbroken devices, as well as, jailbroken devices.

Before you try and download any of the apps below, make sure your iPhone can download third-party apps.

Let’s get started…



The most reliable alternative to Cydia is Tweakbox.

Tweakbox is very simple to use and you can use it on a device that isn’t jailbroken.

With TweakBox, you can download hacked games, modified apps, game emulators, and rare apps.

The caveat to this simple app is that it has a lot of intrusive ads on the screen.

To download TweakBox:

  1. Go to in Safari
  2. Click on Get the app
  3. Go to Settings > General > Profile and Device Management
  4. Click on Trust after opening Tweakbox

TuTu App


The TuTu App is another popular alternative for people who haven’t got jailbroken devices and want something similar to Cydia.

TuTu has a lot of hacked games and tweaked apps which gives you extra features and new experiences when using apps and games.

A popular app from TuTu is Snapchat ++ which is a hacked version of Snapchat.

This app allows you to view Snapchats without opening them – you can also download people snaps and you can view snaps without any emojis or drawing on them.

This is just to give you an idea of the type of features that the hacked apps will include within TuTu.

  2. Click on Scan to download iOS TutuApp
  3. Install TutuApp
  4. Go to your home screen and it should be there


Inocydia is another app that’s similar to download and you’ve probably guessed by the name that it has a lot of similar features to Cydia.

iNoJB allows you to download cracked apps and hacked games to your iPhone and iPad.

This app can be download with any version of iOS so you shouldn’t be worried whether or not you’re using the right OS.

You don’t need to have a jailbroken device to have iNoJB.

Zestia is another great app installer that also works for non-jailbroken devices.

This app is easy to download and it’s unlikely that you’ll encounter problems when you download it.

Zestia allows you to download apps that have been modified and it also lets you download hacked games.

  4. Trust the profile

App Even


App Even allows you to download modified apps as well as normal games and apps.

It’s very similar to TuTu and my favourite part about it is that you can download paid games for free unlike the other alternatives.

If you’ve always been interested in an app but the price tag is holding you back, AppEven will allow you to get that app for free.

To download AppEven:

  1. Go to
  2. Click on Install
  3. Go to Settings > General > Profile and Device Management

  5. Open AppEven on your home page


Emus4u is a new alternative that recently emerged, and it can provide you with hacked games, tweaked apps, and you can get unlimited in-app purchases on some apps.

You can use iTweak even if your iPhone isn’t jailbroken, so you can try out the app and delete it if you don’t like it.

To download Emus:

  1. Go to
  2. Click on Install onto your iDevice
  3. Click allow then Install
  4. Tap on Install again
  5. Click on Done
  6. Go to your home screen and it should be there

  1. I’ve downloaded Tweakbox several times from to my iPad (iOS 10.3.3) and installed the profiler; however, every time I open the app icon on my desktop I get an intrusive VISA ad that takes over the screen and leads to a multi step viewer survey with with requests for contact informations and promises of a $1,000 reward that never seems to end. Trying to find a work around to get to the actual app I have deleted the app and its profiler and rebooted my iPad four times to no avail: each go around same story. Is there any way to get clean access to the app??

  2. Today anyone has an Android device all across the world. This has lead to developing a millions of apps that provide servises such as games, entertainment playgrounds and others. To download this apps a user must get an account at Google Store. But not all games are available there as they don’t meet the Android rules. To avoid this a new app was developed named TutuApp. This helper works on Android run smartphones and tablets and it has the biggest library of APK games. We name a few: Pokemon Go, Spotify, Clash of Clans, Snapchat and many others. They come with zero ads and locked content! Whant to know more? Visit to download Tutu App APK for free on your Android phone. Installation instructions for TutuApp are available at that page.

  3. I myself use TweakBox app. They have a great Twitter support Team and their Website is awesome too – Sadly its not supported on Android devices, so for that users can try other app called Panda Helper.

  4. TutuApp is an application which is also very popular for both the Android and iOS devices. Thanks for giving the information in detail. Good article
