I am sure that almost all you know what Cydia is and what it means. However, just to make myself clear, I want to tell you several thing concerning Cydia and its use before starting with the point of the article. First, Cydia is an alternative for the App Store, a virtual platform that gathers a multitude of apps and tweaks ready to be downloaded. There, users are able to find many useful programs that normally would cost on the App Store. Moreover, it has become the main alternative for downloading apps, tweaks and programs. The only condition imposed by Cydia developers is the fact that Cydia Store works only on jailbroken devices. So, if you want to get Cydia, you need to start jailbreak first.
Recently, we have a new Cydia alternative available for use. It is about the Weblin, the platform where you can find also a lot of apps and tweaks. It looks in a certain manner just like Cydia; this is why it is called the Cydia alternative. However, Weblin is somehow different. It does not reach the level of Cydia and it does not offer the same options and possibilities as Cydia does. Apparently, Weblin is an easier Cydia alternative because it permits users to install rejected apps and tweaks more easily and in the same time, it offers them the possibility to uninstall them right from the homescreen. It seems quite easy and simple to be used. In the same time, users will love the simple interface, which makes the download process easier and simpler.
Another interesting thing is the fact that Weblin does not need a jailbroken device to work. Whether you have a non-jailbroken device or a jailbroken one, you can still use Weblin as a Cydia alternative. It is a web-based service that connects you and your device with hundreds of useful apps and tweaks. It is up to the users’ choice whether if they want to install and use Weblin as a proper Cydia alternative.
