Apple has one of the best legitimate mobile app stores in the world, with more than 2 million apps to choose from. There are apps and games of all kinds from the downright simple, free apps, to the more functional apps and games that require payment. However, with Apple being so restrictive in what they let into the store, there are some things missing and that’s why we jailbreak. Now though, with FtOS just released, we have another option.

What is FtOS ?
It is a third-party app store, similar to Cydia but with one difference, you don’t need to jailbreak to install it. FtOS [ext link] is packed with content, including some Cydia tweaks, modified apps and games like Pokémon Go++, Instagram++ and Snapchat++, and plenty of paid and premium content for free. FtOS and other third-party installers are incredibly popular now because jailbreaking is at low point and FtOS has to be one of the most comprehensive in terms of content. A user-friendly app, you will find several categories of content when you open the app including:
- Apps modified to provide a lot of extra features
- Older versions of apps
- Premium content for free
- Free games
- Duplicated apps
- Phone utility apps
In these categories you will find pretty much everything you are looking for, even a few tweaks that are only normally found in Cydia.
What is the Current Jailbreak Status ?
The current jailbreak status is not good. Since iOS 10 was released we have had just one utility, Yalu jailbreak from Luca Todesco but, as many people found out, it could only be used on certain devices, namely the 64-bit iPhones. We are hoping that Yalu will be updated to support iOS 11, but we certainly can’t guarantee that will happen and there is no news of any other jailbreak being released.
It is for this reason that third-party app installers have gotten more popular and, alongside FtOS, we also have installers like TweakBox [ext link], AppValley [ext link], Emus4iOS and TutuApp to choose from. While they can’t take the place of Cydia completely, they can offer us something that we can all use.
