If you have ever jailbroken your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch then you will know about Cydia which lets you download a range of apps that aren’t available in Apple’s official App store.
Cydia was created by Jay Freeman (Saurik), and he has now announced that he will be launching a version of Cydia for the Mac to rival Apple’s new Mac App Store.
Jay Freeman recently announced at the 360|MacDev conference on Friday, that the Cydia Mac App Store should be launched within the next few weeks.
The Cydia Mac Store is bound to be popular, as around 10 million users already use the iPhone version, and there are 30,000 apps available on Cydia on the iPhone.
I guess all those apps that Apple turns down for the official Mac App Store will be headed to the Cydia Store.
