The App Store for iOS devices brings a lot features and add-ons for the ease and enhancement of its capabilities. With the technology growing so fast, the demand for more will never come to an end. Some brainers took a step ahead to provide users more powers to control their device by launching Cydia (created by Suarik) which bypassed the restrictions on iOS devices (by means of jailbreaking) to install apps to make the device more friendly and useful but those were not officially available in App Store.
Cydia includes paid as well as free apps submitted by various iOS developers and can be installed only on devices running iOS which are first required to be jailbroken. Just like App Store, Apple has also introduced Mac App Store for Mac. However Mac runs on Mac OS X, which cannot be jailbroken but still holds some sandboxing restrictions blocking developers to submit their apps in the App Store.
A hacker named Andrey Fedotov claims by pass the mac sandboxing restrictions and will launch the HackStore for Mac just like Cydia for iOS devices. Since last few months Andey is working on the projct, HackStore and by next months, he plans to release the HackStore for Mac. HackStore will be including the apps, which are not included in the Mac App Store and developers will also be able to submit their apps in the HackStore.
The HackStore will serve as a free marketplace for third party tweaks and programs to be browsed and downloaded reports cultofMac. It will include all the features of Mac App Store like top charts, categories, featured content, search, promotional banners, and so on and will be fully structured similar to cydia and App Store.
Initially, users will not be required to create any login to download any app but the developers can create free account to upload their packages. Everything will be free initially and on the developers demand the tweaks can be paid in future as in the Cydia store.
Andrey states that the main layout of HackStore is almost done and some work for security, design, and content are still has to be worked upon. He requires some more developers who can help him to complete his project.
We reported earlier, iTweak Store, which is also in works and claims to be an alternative to Cydia but still there are no more updates yet available on the project. Can really anyone be able to stand something comparable to Cydia? Definitely, we will get this answer in next few months. What do you think about it, do share in comments below.
