Why Cydia beside App Store

App Store has some pretty good apps but the some developers of those apps go of the grid or the contact information on their websites is wrong. In other words in this case you have purchased an app that will not have any support. Because of a more open market on Cydia store, developers end up helping you even with the smaller problems. From my point this is a result of the guidelines imposed by Apple where rejected developers want mainly to get noticed not make money. Or maybe like a rumor I have heard that there are some guidelines in cydia too where developers must offer support and fix the issues regularly. And the differences don’t stop here.

I was tired to see other devices that can benefit from this simple function of changing the ui appearance, or that of installing tweaks and mods. The only downside to this is that you need to sources/repositories to get on these packages. After jaibreaking cydia comes loaded only with the most important no essential repositories, where you can still find some good apps and tweaks.
