Cysource Is A New Cydia Repository With No Ads And A Comments Section
There is a new Cydia repository in town folks and it is called Cysource. Why are we reporting on Cysource when there is no doubt new Cydia repositories appearing everyday? Well, Cysource happens to be unique. You see, CySource is a repository that is ad-free. As the repository is ad-free it will provide a better user experience and of course decrease loading times.
Ads on Cydia are of course in most repositories to help pay the cost of servers. If Cysource is able to survive without advertisements it could definitely attract a large userbase in a relatively short amount of time; especially when the Jailbreak for newer devices like the iPhone 5 comes out. Yet another pro to Cysource is that it has a comments section for every tweak. In the past other large repositories tried allowing comments or reviews (whatever you want to call them), but unfortunately took the functionality out due to spam. It will be interesting to see whether Cysource can pull it off in the long term.
Developers will be glad to hear that Cysource apparently has a 24 hour turnaround time for package submission, which is a big improvement over most repositories.
At this current time there is only 12 packages on Cysource, but this number is expected to grow. The packages currently hosted include Action Menu, Thor and PanoramaSupport. It will definitely be interesting to see where Cysource goes. In the mean time if you would like to add Cysource to your sources list the URL is:
