Unauthorized Web-based app store coming soon to iPhone [video]
Jailbroken iOS users will soon have a new option for browsing and installing unsanctioned apps on their devices. A group of iPhone developers known as the Infini Dev Team is currently preparing to release a Web-based alternative to the popular Cydia app store, which will allow users to browse and install applications from within the Safari browser. Dubbed “lima,” the new app store will compete directly with Cydia — and with Apple’s App Store, of course — and it will provide both free and paid applications. It will also be repository-based, and will feature an integrated back up and restoring system to simplify the reinstallation process when users update their iOS software or switch phones. Hit the break for a video of lima in action.
