There is a new web based store on the way for jailbroken iDevices. It is called iTweak. It is being described as an alternative to Cydia, featuring themes and utilities for your jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. They also hint that there will be a Mac and PC client to visit the store, but no details given on how that will all work.
So, my question is: do we need an alternative to Cydia? We here at iPhoneinCanada.ca have been huge supporters of Cydia and the jailbreak community. Personally, I have never thought to myself, “Man, I wish I had somewhere else to get all this cool stuff.”. It wasn’t too long ago that we saw RockYouriPhone fall, and merge with Cydia. I look forward to seeing what they have to offer, but I’m skeptical that it can stand up to Cydia, seeing as Cydia has been around for so long, and has a strong following.
There is no release date announced for this new store, but you can keep checking www.iTweakStore.com, to see when they go live, or you can follow the developers on Twitter here: @roktheworld27 and @mtamermahoney
