Cydia Planning To Launch Alternative Mac App Store In Weeks

Cydia is already a very popular alternative app store for iOS devices and with Apple’s Mac App Store to arrive soon, Cydia’s creator Jay Freeman has confirmed that he plans to launch an alternativeMac App Store within weeks. The Cydia app store already caters for about 10 percent of all iPhone users, amounting to about 10 million devices. Freeman is pitching the platform for developers who don’t find Apple’s App Store a suitable place to ply their wares, probably due to the terms and conditions placed upon them. The good news is that since the Mac platform isn’t as locked down as the iOS platform, users won’t need to hack their Mac systems in order to access the Cydia Mac App Store when it’s launched.
