WARNING: Cracked applications are illegal. The whole premise behind cracked applications is if you would like to test an application before purchasing it from the Apple App Store. It is expected that after you download cracked apps to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad running the iOS 6 firmware that you either delete the app after testing it or purchase it from the App Store.
In March a website by the name of AppDora was launched to become the next AppTrackr of sorts. As ever since Hackulous announced their dismissal it send shockwaves through the cracked app community, and now other websites are competing for the top position that AppTrackr held for all those years. AppDora isn’t the only website that closely mimics AppTrackr however, there is another website that has been brought to our attention that some would argue is even better.
Introducing AppAddict. AppAddict isn’t only an AppTrackr replacement, but also an Installous replacement, which is why it is becoming so popular. The actual AppAddict website has all the features you would come to expect from a cracked apps site such as top apps, the ability to search for apps, advanced filters, iTunes descriptions, ratings, screenshots and of course download links.
Just like how AppTrackr was constructed when you find a cracked application you want to install you will be presented with a bunch of download links to various file hosting websites. Just like the annoyances file hosts brought about in the days of Installous, you will need to bare with countdowns, captcha images, limited download speeds etc. unless you buy a premium account.
As mentioned previously, AppAddict isn’t just a great site to download cracked apps from on your computer and then install them manually like some people do, there is also an official iOS app that allows you to manage the installation of cracked apps right on your device, just like Installous. Below is a guide on how to get AppAddict functioning on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
How To Install AppAddict
Step 1) - The first thing you will obviously need to do is Jailbreak your iOS device. You can follow our how to guide by clicking here that supports all firmware version from 6.0 to 6.1.2.
Step 2) - Once you are Jailbroken you will need to launch Cydia, go into the Manage tab, followed by the Sources Section and then tap the Edit and then Add button. You will now be required to enter the repository shown below to install AppSync. This is the actual framework that allows your device to run cracked apps.
Step 3) – When the repository has been added you will need to install AppSync for either iOS 5.0+ or 6.0+ depending on what firmware version you are running (likely iOS 6).
Step 4) - Once AppSync has been installed you will need to exit Cydia and navigate to the following URL through mobile Safari.
Step 5) – Slide to install as instructed on the AppAddict website and the AppAddict app will begin installing to your device. Wait for the installation to finish and then launch the app.
Step 6) – With AppAddict up and running you can browse apps by categories by default or you can swipe to the right to access additional options such as the ability to search. Find an app that you wish to install, such as Doodle Jump, then tap on a download link and proceed to following the specific file hosts instructions for downloading the app.
Step 7) – When the download starts you can view its progress by swiping down from the top bar. After the cracked app finishes downloading you will need to swipe right, go into the Installer tab and install the .IPA file you just downloaded by tapping on it and then tapping the Install button. Upon doing this you will be taken to your homescreen and you should see the app being installed.
That’s about it! You can now use AppAddict to download, manage and install cracked apps. Let us know what you think in the comments section.
