AppCake is an Installous alternative. It mostly works the same way as Installous did, AppCake allows you to download applications for free on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

  1. Thanks for the explnationn, it’s very help full.
    The thing is i downloaded it for my iphone4 but once i for example download someting i.e. games, it doesn’t show that it’s downloading or anything..!
    It’s not as if you were using installous where the app could be downloaded automaticlly and installed automatically…

  2. I downloaded cydia as a source but all it shows is appcake + hd. Nothing else is offered. Is appcake+ hd good for iphone 4S also? My IOS is 5.1.1
