iOS 10 has proven to be something of a problem for jailbreaking. With so few utilities released those that we do have are limited to who can use them and many users have been left high and dry with no access to Cydia. Over the months, there have been a few app installers released, each vying to go head to head with Cydia and take over, most of them failing. The latest one may be about to bring something new to the competition.

Cyrus Installer is the closest app installer to Cydia that has ever been released. Rather than offering you free access to app store content, it focuses more on what Cydia [ext link] has to offer, giving you the opportunity to customize your device without having to jailbreak your device first. And, for those concerned about safety, Cyrus Installer features SSL encryption, making it one of the safest ways to download Cydia tweaks. If that weren’t enough, all the content is concentrated into 6 categories so you can easily find what you are looking for:
- Emulators – all the tools you need to play console games from Nintendo, Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, etc.
- Entertainment – music and video apps
- Tweaked apps – play your favorite games with extra features, like Pokémon GO++
- Social Media apps – lots of apps modified to give you more features, like Spotify++ and Snapchat++
- Tweaks and Themes – lots of themes and other tweaks that aren’t in Cydia
- Other – anything that falls outside of these categories
