There were reasons that the Hackulous team shut down their Installous pirated app store at the end of last year, and that could have been a catalyst to see even easier alternatives for side-loading iOS apps make their mark. While some folks with pure intention would not use side-loading to fall into the temptation of pirated apps, how many of us have that kind of self control? A couple of sites such as Zeusmos and Kuaiyong have appeared since the shut down of Installous, and it is interesting to note that both services do not require you to jailbreak the iPhone. Needless to say, you will not be able to pick up either from Apple’s App Store, but fret not – those who have given it a go claim that the installation process is easy peasy.

Apparently, all that is required of you as an iPhone user would be to drop by a website, followed by hitting the Install button – although we could not confirm it on our side. Once done, the Installous replacement ought to make an appearance on your home screen. This seems to be a many-headed hydra in the works, and Apple, despite all of their might, should be unable to stop piracy when enough users have a demand for it. Just one of those facts of life, I guess.
