While the iOS app store is one of the most comprehensive in the world, not every app or game in the store is free. Some of them may only cost a couple of dollars to purchase, but most have expensive in-app purchases and will only allow you to go so far without making these purchases.
What if you could get any app or game you wanted for free? Without having to pay to buy the app or for in-app purchases? Well, there are several ways to do this, and we’re going to talk about just five of the very best.
1. Best Websites to Download Free Apps and Games
Loads of unofficial app installers have been released in recent years, many of them starting life as alternatives to Cydia. Now they are widely used as alternative app stores, and we think these five offer the very best app experience.
a) App Valley
AppValley comes to us from an American development team and is one of the very best sources of free apps and games. Everything is entirely free, and you will find all kinds of modified apps, like Facebook++, Instagram++, WhatsApp++, and more.
There are plenty of premium games, all unlocked and free to use, and there are some Cydia tweaks too – game emulators, screen recorders like iRec and AirShou, streaming apps, and so much more.
TutuApp Store is a relative newcomer but has fast become incredibly popular. It is packed with cool modified apps, games, and tweaks, and you get the choice of a free version or upgrading, for a small payment, to a VIP version.
The free version offers a great selection of third-party apps, torrent downloaders, tweaks, modified games, and more, while the VIP version provides more choice of content, faster downloads, no restrictions, and no ads. The installer is updated daily with improvements, bug fixes, and new content, and you can even request apps or games to be added.
TweakBox was one of the first Cydia alternatives to be released and has now become one of the top-three alternative app stores. TweakBox is monitored regularly for any problems, which are fixed immediately, and new content is always being added.
The installer offers a ton of unofficial apps, games, and tweaks for free, and it is one of the best sources of modified stock apps, like Spotify++, WhatsApp++, YouTube++, and more and of games emulators and streaming apps. Everything is in one of four categories, so you can easily find the app or game you want quickly.
CokernutX is a relatively new installer and doesn’t have as much content as some of the others. However, you can choose from more than 5,000 apps and games, and that number is added to regularly.
It is a great alternative, not just to the app store but for when other app installers stop working for one reason or another. There are few restrictions, and the app is in use by millions of users worldwide.
e) TopStore App
Our final choice is TopStore App, an installer packed with thousands of apps, games, and tweaks. There are plenty of modified stock apps, tweaked games with cool new features, tweaks, game emulators, ringtones, themes, screen recorders, and so much more. It’s all free to use and is one of the best sources of free apps and games.
2. How to Use App Installers
All of these app installers are incredibly easy to use:
- Download your choice of app installer, using the official download links
- Open the driver from your home screen
- Choose an app or game – browse the contents or type a specific app name into the search bar
- Tap on your choice and tap on getting or Install
- Follow any other instructions on the screen and wait – once the app icon shows up on your home screen, it’s yours to use.
3. Are Third-Party App Stores Safe?
Most are, yes. The five mentioned above are most definitely safe to use and have been thoroughly tested. We can reassure you there are no viruses, malware, or anything else harmful in these installers.
Still, you must use the official links and ensure that you install any updates to the developer’s release. You should also consider using good anti-virus software on your iPhone too.
Third-party app stores are fast becoming the norm, in use far more than the official app stores are. That is because they all offer a fantastic choice of free apps and games, mostly with additional features and functionality.
Every one of them is free to download and use, very safe to use, and are legal too – none of them require a jailbreak, so they do not go against the security Apple places on your device.
Make your choice today and, if one doesn’t work for you, try another one – one of them will provide the app experience you are looking for.
