Departure of Hackulous and Installous is very sad news for the community of iOS jailbreak. It doesn’t mean that the community cannot find another way or an alternative for it. There are many substitutes for them like vShare or AppCake.
As far as I have experienced, the AppCake is one of the best alternative to Installous on iPhone and iPad devices. I am personally using on my iOS devices without any issues. Personally, I would recommend everyone to use AppCake instead of any other alternative available on the Internet.
I have installed AppCake on my iOS devices, as I told before. Now, I am free to download any application on my iOS devices for free of cost. I seriously condemned the iOS app piracy, but I use these services to test before investing my money in iOS App Store.
Many of you already aware of the fact that Jailbreak hackers are also imposing ban on such applications for jailbreak users, and over the past years, such applications raise serious numbers. If you are using AppCake, Installous, or any other service that allow you to download free apps for free of cost then you are hurting the healthy community.
