Mobile app stores are designed to provide us with all sorts of different apps and games to choose form but some come with a high price tag. The iOS app store is arguably the best in the world but because Apple restricts the content to those that pass their strict guidelines, a lot of great apps just can’t get in there and that means you are missing out. With the lack of jailbreaks available right now, we find ourselves turning to alternatives such as FtOS instead.

What is FtOS ?

It’s a third-party app store that rivals the iOS store in terms of content. The difference is, this is all the content that Apple won’t allow, all the hacked and tweaked apps, lots of premium content that you would normally have to pay for and a great deal more. FtOS [ext link] is the latest in a long line of app installers released in recent times to try and take the place of Cydia [ext link] but, although they each offer something that we might want, they don’t offer everything. FtOS offers more than most in the terms of content and is also one of the easiest to use. When you open FtOS you will find all the content sorted into neat categories:

  • Free games content
  • Duplicate apps 
  • Older versions of apps
  • Paid and premium content for free
  • Modified apps
  • iPhone utility apps

This pretty much covers everything you might possibly want to download and even includes some of the more popular Cydia tweaks.

Jailbreak Status :

It won’t have escaped anyone’s notice that we haven’t had too many jailbreaks just recently and the few that we have got can only be used by a small group of users. So many people can no longer use Cydia that developers have started releasing third-party app stores and installers with frequent regularity and we can expect to see more as time goes on.

When we will see an update to Cydia is anyone’s guess right now although we hope it won’t be too far off. In the meantime, FtOS is perhaps your best bet for downloading a whole host of tweaked and modified apps, some Cydia tweaks and premium content for free.

How to Download FtOS :

It is very easy to download FtOS; simply follow the detailed instructions in the linked post:
