HipStore Repo: Download and Install it to iPhone

HipStore RepoFans of jailbroken iDevices were sad to hear that the developers of Installous has stopped working on this Cydia App Store favorite. For those who have not tried jailbreaking their iPhones or iPads or those who are new to jailbreaking, this tweak was where users download paid apps for free and without having to go through iTunes. This tweak was so popular that many people were enticed to jailbreak their phones just to get their hands on free apps that they would normally pay for.

While the end of Installous is bad news for people with jailbroken iDevices, they would be pleased to know that there are a number of alternative apps or tweaks that allows users to access paid apps for free. Of course, all of these tweaks are available on the Cydia App Store. When choosing an alternative to Installous, one has to be careful because many of these tweaks and repositories only offer trial versions of paid apps. If a user likes it, he or she must still purchase the app to get access to full content. This may be fine for many jailbroken iDevice users out there, but for some, a trial version isn’t enough. This is where HipStore Repo comes in. Unlike other app repositories, HipStore Repo allows users of jailbroken phones to download full paid apps for free.

The way HipStore Repo works is quite simple. The first step is to download it onto an iDevice through the Cydia App Store. In order to gain access to this popular underground app store, one must first jailbreak the iDevice. There’s no need to worry about voiding the iPhone or iPad’s warranty by jailbreaking them. As easy it is to hack into the device’s firmware, it is also rather simple to restore the device to its factory setting – free of any evidence that it had once been jailbroken. All one needs to do is to connect it to iTunes on a PC or Mac computer and click on Restore Device.

After downloading and installing it on the device, users can now install cracked versions of what are supposed to be paid applications. To do this, just tap on the HipStore icon in the app screen. Find the search bar and type the name of the paid app to be downloaded and installed. HipStore Repo has a vast array of paid apps to choose from, but be informed that not all paid apps available in the official App Store can be found in this repository. Users should make sure that they don’t exit the application or the phone doesn’t lock up during download and installation or else the process will fail. Once the app has been downloaded and installed, the next step would be to launch the IPA installer (which is also available in the Cydia App Store) to apply the crack to the app and unlock the full version for free. Aside from applications and games, HipStore Repo users can also enjoy free themes and wallpapers that are not usually available on the official App Store or are available for a price.

How to Take Secret Screenshots of Snapchat Pictures in iOS 7 Without Notifying the Sender

Many people use Snapchat because of its privacy settings. Users can send photos to other users and choose whether the photos will appear anywhere from one to ten seconds before self-deleting. This feature makes it “safer” to send photos to others without worrying that the photo will be making the rounds on the internet. Of course, there is a catch. Recipients can take screenshots of the photos they receive – if they’re fast enough. Luckily for the senders, they are notified whenever a friend takes a screenshot of the photos sent to them, making it easier to track who has a copy of the photo. Snapchat is available for download on Android, Windows Phone (unofficial app), and iOS devices and has become very popular, especially among teenagers and young adults.

Snapchat works well on Apple devices; however, when iOS 7 was first released, the developers of this app were not able to anticipate the adjustments made for devices running on this new firmware version. This adjustment, which involves canceling out the touch gesture when taking a screenshot, nullified Snapchat’s all-important privacy setting by allowing screenshots to be taken without sending a notification to the sender. Snapchat’s developers quickly went to work to resolve this issue and soon enough, this glitch was corrected and Snapchat became “secure” again.

It may be too late for iOS 7 users to take advantage of this loophole in the system, but those who have jailbroken phones can still store Snapchat photos on their phone without taking a screenshot (which will notify the sender). All they need to do is to go to the Cydia App Store and download and install the tweak called Snapchat Log. This tweak is exactly what the name suggests. It records all Snapchat interactions and saves the photos on the device without having to take a screenshot. Once installed, users can go to the Settings App and toggle on Open Snapchat Log. There are two versions of this tweak – a free one and a paid one. The free version only keeps track of the interactions, but does not save the photos on the device. The paid tweak on the other hand, allows users to secretly keep photos sent to them through Snapchat. Users can also delete individual photos or the entire interaction log using this tweak. For now, Snapchat Log only works for photos. Saving video interactions are not supported just yet, but they may be included in the future.

iOS 7 Jailbreak: iOS 7 Cydia Update Issued; New Tweak Allows Blue Theme Keyboard

ios7Blue Theme Keyboard

One of the benefits of jailbreaking an iPhone or an iPad is gaining the ability to personalize one’s user experience for each device. The jailbreak apps or tweaks used to customize an iPhone, iPad, or even an iPod Touch can be downloaded from an app called Cydia – which is automatically installed in jailbroken phones. The tweaks available in the Cydia App Store allow users to make their device as unique as they are without voiding the warranty on the device. All one has to do is to restore the phone to its factory settings through iTunes and any trace of being jailbroken disappears.

Jailbreaking has become so popular that many Apple device users hold off until a new version of the jailbreak tool is released before upgrading their firmwares. This is to ensure that they will be able to jailbreak and customize their phones as soon as the firmware update is complete.

One of the more popular tweaks available on the Cydia App Store is the BlueBoard tweak created by developer xTheMaster3x. This tweak can be installed and enabled on devices that run on iOS 7.x.x and like the name suggests, this tweak turns the keys of the device’s keyboard blue. This may not seem like a lot to many iOS device, but for those who are tired of the boring dark gray on light gray keyboard Apple devices are known for, changing the color of the keys is a refreshing change. The color also works well with the standard light gray background which comes standard with the keyboard. Once downloaded and installed, all iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users need to do is to enable it by going to the Settings app and switching the toggle to ON.


Of course, it’s understandable that not everyone likes the color blue. For those who are looking for more color options, the Cydia App Store has several other tweaks available for download that allows users to change the keyboard color on their jailbroken phones. One example is Bloard which prevents the device from matching the keyboard color to the app that is open and running when the keyboard is accessed. This allows users to have the same dark keyboard no matter what app they’re running. Those who want more color options apart from BlueBoard’s blue keyboard and Bloard’s infinitely dark keyboard, another tweak in the Cydia App Store called Fancy allows users to change not just the keyboard colors, but the screen colors and themes as well.

Cydia Tweak: Remember Wraparound? Mobius Does the Same but under iOS 7

MobiusScrolling through each app page on an iPhone or iPad trying to find one particular icon and then having to scroll back after realizing that the icon you’re looking for is on one of the previous screens can be quite frustrating. Several years ago, that stopped being a problem for many who have jailbroken their devices. The Cydia app store contained a solution called Wraparound which allows users to scroll through their app pages continuously without having to scroll back. This is because the app connects the Spotlight screen with the last app screen, thus creating an infinite loop.

Unfortunately for iPhone and iPad users who have newer device models running on iOS 7, this jailbreak tweak has not been updated to work with this new firmware version. Many of those who been using this tweak since it was first released have easily adapted to the change. This is because this newest version of the iOS firmware allows users to store their apps in folders, making it easier to organize one’s app screen and lessens the need for infinite scrolling. There are those, however, who still miss being able to infinitely scroll through their app pages. Luckily for these people, a replacement tweak is available in the Cydia store.

As far as functionality goes, this new tweak called Mobius does the same thing that Wraparound did for older device models and devices that still run on iOS 6 and older. Unlike Wraparound, however, Mobius, which was developed by Tyler Casson, is free of charge and is available in the Cydia store as well as in Casson’s private repository. Those interested in downloading and installing this tweak will be happy to know that it works well with most of the popular packages available in the Cydia Store; however, it does not work with Barrel – another popular jailbreak tweak.

Introducing: The Burst Mode Cydia Tweak

Burst Mode Cydia TweakWhen Apple rolled out the iOS 7 firmware update, many Apple device users were pleasantly surprised with the inclusion of “burst mode” to their device’s camera application. Burst mode gives users the capability to take up to 10 shots when tapping and holding the shutter button for one second. This can be useful when trying to capture the perfect moment even at high speeds. Unfortunately for many who have older devices or for those who still refuse to upgrade their device’s firmware, there is a way to integrate burst mode into devices running on iOS 6 or even iOS 5. Here’s how:


  • If your device runs on iOS 5.x.x or iOS 6.x.x and is not jailbroken yet, now is the time to do so. Jailbreaking tools for older phone models are still available for download. The process is usually as simple as downloading the tool, launching it on a Windows PC or Mac computer, and following a few simple steps to jailbreak the Apple device.
  • Once an iPhone or iPad is jailbroken, the user now has access to an app called Cydia. This is where all the device’s tweaks and customizations can be downloaded and stored. Go to the Cydia app on the phone and download the Burst Mode tweak developed by PoomSmart.
  • After downloading the tweak, install it and enable it by going to the Settings application and switching the toggle for burst mode to ON.
  • Once the tweak has been enabled, users can now enjoy the same burst mode feature that newer device models running on iOS 7 have.

On the Settings app, users can also adjust the hold time delay, as well as the interval between shots taken when using burst mode. This tweak also offers some functions that are not available on the original iOS 7 upgrade. These functions include enabling or disabling iris animation, preview animation, live preview well, flash burst, and HDR burst.

How to Jailbreak Your iPhone iOS 7.0.4

If there’s one downside to owning an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, it’s that there’s very little you can do in terms of tweaking or customizing your phone. This can be quite frustrating for many Apple device users, and this is also the reason the term “jailbreak” has become popular over the years. Jailbreaking an Apple device simply means hacking into the phone or tablet’s operating system to allow you to make customizations and tweaks similar to what devices that run on Android platforms allow you to do. This process is not illegal, nor does it void the phone’s warranty. Simply restore the phone back to its factory settings by connecting it to iTunes on any Windows or Mac computer and the device will return to its original state.

Every time Apple rolls out a new operating system upgrade, expect a new jailbreak version to follow soon. Here’s how to do it for iOS 7.0.4:


  • Back up all of your device’s content on iTunes and restore it to factory settings. The “cleaner” your phone is, the smoother the jailbreak process will go.
  • Download the jailbreak tool for Windows (PC) or OSX (Mac) from This is the only place you can get the official jailbreak version for iOS7.
  • With the device connected to the computer (and iTunes turned off), launch the evasi0n jailbreak tool on the computer and click on “Jailbreak” and wait for further instructions.
  • The tool will then display instructions to unlock the device (if it is locked – twice if a passcode is needed) and to click on the evasi0n 7 app icon on the device’s screen.
  • Wait until the jailbreak process is completed and exit the evasi0n jailbreak tool on the computer. The device may re-boot a couple of times to complete the jailbreak.

Once the jailbreak is complete, the device will show a new app icon called Cydia. This is where all the customizations and tweaks can be found. Cydia apps usually update on their own, but it’s always best to check if there are apps that need updating. Happy jailbreaking!

Installous Alternatives

Installous established itself as the best downloader of cracked mobile app for iPhone and many users appreciated its offered benefit, especially the availability of cracked apps.

Since Installous won’t be available, Apple device users look for the best alternatives to use in obtaining cracked apps. They want to use apps that maximize their devices’ functionality.

Another essential feature is its easy to use feature. Simple tap on the interface and apps will be delivered to your device. On the other hand, Zeusmos charges a minimal yearly fee, which can be disappointing for some users although those who can spend some money on it will find it beneficial.

Vshare or App VV

Among all the Installous alternatives available online, vShare is perhaps the option that highly resembles the famous downloader. It serves as the gateway for millions of apps that you’ve been looking for. The feel is similar and requires AppSync. Manual installation is also possible, but you must prepare yourself from installing this device. Several reports indicate that installation may not be as simple compared to other alternatives.

Both Mac and Windows computer support this app, tapping to more users.

Panda App

Panda App has its unique charms if compared with other Installous alternatives. Some people label it as the unconventional option in installing mobile apps, particularly on Apple device. Nevertheless, it deserves to be listed as among the best alternatives because it brings in apps compatible with other mobile operating systems. To set your expectations, installing apps through Panda App is quite challenging since manual app installation is required on your device. However, practice will make the process easier.


HipStore is compared with iFunBox. It offers a PC platform where users can download mobile apps instead of getting them directly on Apple devices. Due to this feature, many people who are comfortable using their computers will have the chance to get their apps and then place them on their devices. Users will browse the website to look for the app and then download. Once downloaded, they can be installed on the mobile app. It is also relatively easier to use despite the need to use a computer for installation.

Overall, Installous alternatives are available for you in getting your needed mobile app. No need to be depressed about Installous shutting down as you have a lot of alternative options to use. Guides in using them are shared online, allowing you to navigate them with ease.
