Why Installous for the iPhone?
Since you landed on this page, it’s likely you have some idea on what installous for the Apple iPhone does. But in the event you don’t, here’s a brief explanation.
When Apple released the iPhone, they also released the App Store. Now, at this point in time, the App Store has become incredibly successful, selling billions of mobile apps. Generally, in order to get these apps, iPhone users need to go to the app store, do a search (or download from one of the “featured sections”) and download the app from there.
As users with jailbroken iPhones know, however, when you unlock your iPhone, you open the door to virtually unlimited customization options. This is what installous is all about – a new way to get apps onto your unlocked iPhone. With installous, you simply search for an app’s .IPA, click the “download” link and install the .IPA.
Bam! Now you’ve got that app on your iPhone. It’s incredibly easy – but it can be frustrating finding the right source.
When you download a .IPA onto your Apple iPhone, you’ll have to choose a source to download it from. From that point, you’ll often have to fill out a CAPTCHA code before you can get the download link. Occasionally, an .IPA will be hosted on a site that makes it difficult for iPhone users to get through the download process. If you find this happening to you, don’t sweat it. Just go back into installous and pick a new source.
