    Default Best Installous Alternatives That Work to Install IPA Files



    Installous was the best third-party cracked app downloader for iOS devices hands down but for some of us, the thing doesn't work at all. Iyou'rere bogged down by continuous Invalid IPA and Unavailable API errors and can’t fix the bugs, you are probably frustrated and need an alternative.

    Although Installous was a pretty good app, it still has got alternatives that you can readily download and get going. In our quick roundup today, we’ll look at some of the popular alternatives to Installous that you can download on your iOS devices.Top 8 Installous Alternatives that Work

    Disclaimer: We don’t recommend Installous or any other Installous alternatives in any manner to Install .IPA files. Digital Forums is not affiliated with any website/developer mentioned in this post, and we don’t encourage app piracy. Developers put a lot of effort to create apps and what’s a dollar or two to spend on buying these apps? The only reason we post on these alternatives is to help users try out costly apps before they decide to purchase it. Under no circumstances should this be misconstrued as supporting piracy or piracy-related apps.

    1. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is in my opinion, one of the finest Installous alternatives you can get your hands on. One of the best things about i-Funbox is that even though it comes as a desktop app, it’s easy and fun to use. There is not much of a learning curve in installing IPA files that you can either search directly on the software or the ones you download from elsewhere.
    2. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is something we posted on recently. It’s one of the finest Installous alternatives that has gained popularity. AppCake comes from the iphonecake repo which is quite popular too. What makes AppCake a very good Installous alternative is the fact that the usage is pretty much similar to Installous so users of Installous would certainly find AppCake familiar.
    3. iPhonecake is a great website to get all the latest IPA's [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    4. IPA Search. When you visit [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] from your iPhone, you can search for valid IPA files from the app.su server. This Installous alternative isn’t all that popular but it’s quite versatile and good in bringing up relevant and working results. If you’re looking to download IPA files directly to your iPhone or other iDevices, IPA Search will get that done for you.Now, even when you download IPA files directly, you won’t probably get to install them till you use something like i-Funbox.
    5. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] was formerly App VV and it uses pretty much the same resource as Installous. In a sense, it’s the same thing as Installous with only some interface changes that a few users would prefer over Installous. vShare requires that you download AppSync on Cydia – this means you’ll need to install “hackulo.us” repo. One great thing about vShare is that the community and the developers are as professional as Installous.

    To Install:

    • Add [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to the repo
    • search for App VV or vShare
    • download and reboot the device
    • vShare will be on the springboard


    6. IPA Installer Console.
    This doesn't usually happen but grab it while it lasts. There is a Cydia tweak called IPA Installer Console in the BigBoss repo (default) which lets you install IPA files and edits the iTunesMetadata.plist file to bypass update checks. The default repos usually do not allow such tweaks to be hosted, and it sure looks strange but IPA Installer Console works just fine. With it, you can install IPA files that you’ve downloaded from various sources. The IPA Installer Console will also let you play/run apps on a device that is not supported officially by the app.

    7.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is a relatively new service which works very similar to AppTrackr. It’s an online repository of several cracked apps you can install on your iPhone. If you visit their website from your iPhone, you’ll also be able to get to the iOS version of the website so finding and downloading apps becomes easier.

    8.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is another new alternative that hosts a ton of cracked apps you can try on your iPhone (before buying them from the App Store). Like AppAddict or AppTrackr, you get to download the cracked apps from externally hosted sources but the website itself serves as a large repo for app discovery.I’m sure we missed some really good ones so tell us your favorite alternatives.

    surely to be regarded as an installous alternative it would need to run on the ios device itself. I have both vshare and appcake on my ipad and they are both next to useless.

    Just a bit poor, numerous dead links, incredibly slow downloads etc. Not the fault of Appcake really, more the hosting sites.

    I just tried to installed appaddict on my iPad, it wouldn't install and it caused safari & mail to stop working I've got them back now so everything is ok. Maybe it's not compatible with iOS 7

    Does anyone know how to get Appaddict to work on IOS 5.1.1? My kids have Ipad 1's which are stuck on IOS 5.1.1 for ever. Or do any of you know if any of the other Installous alternatives still support IOS 5.1.1, I have tried Zeusmos which installs and opens but there are no download links showing up.

    I'm sure the older versions of Appcake support iOS 5
