We have this feature of our website that shows us what users are searching for on our site and if they got any results. The biggest thing seached for with ZERO results was Cydia. I couldn’t remember what it was so I googled it and found this great thread on modmyifone.com. I can’t believe we forgot about this! I was going to look into it more when it first came out but never did. So today I installed it.
To put it simple, Cydia is like Installer.app but Open Source. There are many additional features and it’s like Installer.app always should have been. The first thing I love about Cydia is the alphabet down the side of the package list so you can scroll faster. Other things like the number above the “changes” options flashes when there are updates. Instead of a recent packages and update section, this is combined in the “changes” section. This includes a list of updates for both apps on your iPhone and recent changes of others.
There is also a search! This is also very nice and speeds things up instead of scrolling through all categories to find something. The only bad part for now is you can’t add sources. This is all a work in progress but I thought I would get this info out there for those who wanted to know. This app really needs a video so I will get one out soon! Until then, here are some screenshots:
