Last year we reported about Installer 5 beta getting released. While it took them more than 1 year to get the product ready and release a public beta, the modern package manager and Cydia alternative is now available for download. Installer 5 features a modern design that appears to be heavily inspired by the App Store. It offers over 100 features and has some unique selling points that set it apart from the likes of Sileo, which is another Cydia alternative by team Electra.
With Installer 5 users will get a beautiful looking package manager that features a community managed featured packages page, which lists all the notable new tweaks that are available on the platform. Other features include ability for users to see all of their purchases in one place, a dark mode that looks like the native dark mode included in iOS 13, ability for uses to search for their favorite developers and see a list of their available tweaks, decluttered categories and icons for packages.
Installer 5’s features go beyond looks as it also offers convenience focused features like ability to add multiple repositories at once by pasting them together from a clipboard, authentication for various operations, back up feature for repos and packages, compatibility with RootlessJB, search history and more.
You can find a complete list of Installer 5 features on their official website here. Installer 5 is compatible with all jailbroken devices running iOS 9 up to iOS 12. You can download it by adding ‘https://apptapp.me/repo/’ to your Cydia sources.
