For many people trying the app before buying it makes perfect sense.
vShare is a custom AppStore that offers users all the paid apps on the Apple AppStore for free. You have to download and install the vShare app that’s it. You get all the apps for free.
There was a perfect app called Installous, it’s not the best of all.
The greatness about this app is that the app can also be downloaded and installed on not jailbroken devices. All you need to do is just head over to vShare.com on your Safari browser.
Now just click on the download button for unjailbroken devices. The installation confirmation will pop-up as you can see below.
After hitting the vShare install button, let the app download and install.
Now when you try to open the app, iOS will ask you to trust the app developer. Click on “Trust”.
Now your app is ready to use.
In some cases, the installation gets stuck at last stages. In those cases, you may want to opt for other vShare alternatives like AppCake, iOSEmus, and others. Which I will discuss in a separate post.
If you want to install the vShare at any cost.
Below is the method how you can install vShare on jailbroken devices.
How to install vShare on jailbroken devices?
There’s no seperate repo for vShare. It’s just a IPA package by non-verified developer. You need not go to Cydia to install it.
You have to first install a Cydia tweak, that let’s your iOS to install non-verified apps. Then install vShare with the help of its website. That’s it.
For this first you need to install AppSync Unified from Karen’s repo. Basically, what this tweak does is that it allows you install fake signed IPA packages. AppSync also makes many more apps like this, compatible with your device. You can install any unsigned IPA packages, without any restrictions.
For installing it, you need first add Karen’s repo as a source in your Cydia app.
Add the URL – http://cydia.angelxwind.net/
Click add source.
Now search “AppSync Unified” on Cydia search. Install the tweak.
Now launch the Safari app on your device, head over to vShare.com. There click on “vShare Download for jailbroken devices”. Now hit install.
Now vShare should download and install without any issues. Because AppSync will be helping in the installation of a untrusted source.
In my next tutorial, I’m gonna explain how to install some of the vShare alternatives.
