Cydia Adds New Manage Account Feature
Users of jailbroken iOS devices would have noticed this week that Cydia, the App Store equivalent for jailbroken apps, has been updated with a new Manage Account feature that allows users to conveniently view purchased packages from the Cydia store.
The Manage Account feature can be accessed from Cydiaâ€™s main screen under â€œManage Accountâ€ and then â€œInstallable Purchasesâ€ once you login to the Google or Facebook account that your purchases are associated with. Also, note the following points from Freeman:
- You may have purchased a package on another account to the one logged in, Cydia cannot â€˜loseâ€™ purchases, just try logging on to another account to find such a purchase
- Does not include packages not on the Cydia store that you purchased directly from vendor (an example would be iLocalis)
- Some Rock purchases may not automatically show up (Freeman says heâ€™s tried his best to automatically do this) but if you scroll down to the bottom of the â€œInstallable Purchasesâ€ thereâ€™s a link to associating a Rock account
