Cyrus Installer is a new app for iOS devices that allows you to install tweaks. An alternative to TweakBox and the likes, Cyrus Installer works with iOS 10 and iOS 11 devices. Using Cyrus, you can install tweaks without having to jailbreak your iOS device.
Over the last few years, there have been a few apps that have been called “Cydia alternatives”. Some of them have remained by working as alternative app stores. Those that have tried to replace Cydia have not managed to continue with their endeavours. Another addition to similar type of apps is Cyrus Installer. Using Cyrus Installer, you can install apps that are generally found in Cydia. However, to use Cyrus Installer, you don’t have to jailbreak your device.
Cyrus Installer Features
Cyrus Installer’s developer lists several features that make this app unique.
The app features minimal design, with a focus on displaying only the required information. The focus is on making the entire process a pleasing experience instead of information overload.
Safe and Secure
Cyrus is encrypted with SSL, which means all your data is safe. All private data you have stays private. Only you know what apps you download.
Cyrus was designed for the basic user, not full-on expert. No knowledge of repositories and side-loading required. All you need is Cyrus to install your favorite apps. No wires or dongles needed.
Cyrus is free to use. The developer displays runs the app off some ads and user donations.
Cyrus Installer is more akin to solutions like TuTuApp, TweakBox etc. These other solutions let you do the same thing – install apps found in Cydia. In addition to that, they also offer some apps found in the official App Store. Cyrus Installer focuses on bringing apps found in Cydia only, for now.
The one area where Cyrus Installer wins points is its minimalist approach. The store consisted of more than 80 apps at the time of writing, including modified apps like Snapchat++, Spotify++, tweaks like Pokemon GO++ and more. The store also consists of Emulators. Cyrus Installer also says that Themes and Tweaks are coming soon, allowing you to customize your device even better.
To help you navigate the offerings in Cyrus Installer, you can choose from six categories – Emulators, Social Media, Other Apps, Entertainment, Tweaked Apps and Themes & Tweaks.
