For so many people, the one reason they chose to jailbreak their devices was to download from a huge choice of games emulators so that they could play some of their favorite games console game on their iOS devices. Jailbreaks are in extremely short supply now, but the community can breathe a collective sigh of relief as we welcome a third-party emulator app called HappyChick.
Now that jailbreaks are becoming a rarity, we are looking to third-party app installers to provide the tweaks and other Cydia content that we miss. One of the main reasons why many chose to jailbreak was to download paid and premium app store content for free and the latest app installer, AppVN, provides that access once more, all without needing to jailbreak first.
What is AppVN?
App VN is an unofficial app store, containing a handful of Cydia tweaks and modified apps, alongside the premium content for free. App VN was once only available in Vietnam, India, and Brazil where it proved very popular and has now been released globally. Now millions more people can take advantage of the great choice of content App VN offers, including a selection of apps and games that can’t be found anywhere else. Here are some of the top features:
While the iPhone and the iPad are fantastic devices they can’t do everything, partly because of the architecture and partly because Apple is quite strict on what they allow us to do. One of the things you can’t do with an iPhone or iPad in its stock format is to play your favorite games from Gameboy Advance but that changed with jailbreaking. Several emulators appeared in Cydia that allowed us to do just that and then one made its way into the iOS app store, GBA4iOS. Although it isn’t in the app store anymore, you can still use this emulator.
Music streaming is a big thing now, with more and more people using apps like Spotify every day. In fact, with more than 1oo million users every month, Spotify is the most popular app of it’s kind and mover half of those users pay to get the premium features of the app. The free version is somewhat limited to what can be downloaded, no streaming, and is ad-supported but the cost of $9.99 per month is just too much for some people to pay.
Snapchat is one of the more popular of all the social media apps and most users will be happy to learn that there is now an app called Snapchat++. This is a modified version of the stock app and includes a few extra features that you won’t find in Snapchat. Normally you would need to jailbreak to get these features but now you can download Snapchat++ without having to download Cydia first.
