Here we have something for our Jaibreak fans, all those people who like to use jailbroken iPhones and search for different new apps for their jailbroken devices. All of those users go for Cydia’s app store and usually struggle at some point to find what you are looking for.
As you know, Cydia is the official app store for all the third party unofficial apps which only run on jailbroken iOS devices including iPads, iPhones and iPod touches. It has been few year now that many of the jailbreak users tend to use this app store. Well, we can assure you that Cydia has been updating its app regularly from its early days. But today, Cydia updated its app and fixed a very old and common problem in the app and now you can see that the app store is really improved now.
So, if you want to check out what is this mysterious new feature in the Cydia, start your Cydia app store now. In the previous versions, you will see a lot of different categories and mostly some of them look very similar to each other with addition to the sub categories galore. So, if you are browsing more and more in the app hunting mode, you will see a long, actually, very long list of apps and tweaks. Well, so far it has worked well but as you can see the sheer number of apps and tweaks and other codes which are being added to different many repositories, has now make the app’s system broken at its core. It really needed a fix, and a big one. So, Cydia introduced Developer Directory in the app store.
This Developers Directory is put together by the folks at ModMyi, and this directory actually provides the list of developers who create apps or tweaks for the jailbreak community.
Well, the directory not only lists the developer’s names, the list also consists of their released software as well. Cydia has also added a very useful biography section in the same directory, so now we can get to know a little about the developers of our loved apps. The whole directory is searchable and developers can request the site to be added in the list.
It is very interesting to see that ModMyi has put up a whole list of requirements, upon which’s fulfillment developers will be allowed to be added in the directory. So, it seems like a very fair game for everyone. Following is the note published by ModMyi:
Are you a jailbreak developer who would like to be added? We are looking for developers who have released products within Cydia, whether free or paid. We look at each submission manually to ensure that high quality products are listed. Some examples of apps we don’t count are apps built purely with UIWebViews in tabs, unpolished/buggy ‘crapps’, and items which are or promote illegal activity.
So, it seems like a start to the development of cohesive and organized jailbreak community, which is sought after by many of the jailbreak users. All the best to ModMyi for taking the initiative!
