A few weeks ago something labeled the ‘HackStore’ was announced, and the point of the store was to bring a Cydia-like experience to Mac computers. The creator, Andrey Fedotov, said that the HackStore would be an alternative to the App-store for developers who’s applications get rejected. We do realize that developers could post their applications on the internet, but a marketplace of applications allows for easier discovery.
How It Will Work:
According to Fedotov, the HackStore will be open to rejected applications,tweaks, and other programs. Overall, you will notice a App-store experience, only all the applications/tweaks are different. Like Cydia, no user-login is required for downloading applications. But if you are a developer you must login via the homepag sidebar to submit your package. Initially all packages and applications will be free of charge, but in the future Fedotov is hoping to offer premium paid content.
Like the Mac App-store, you will notice top charts,categories, and a search bar. When you click on a tweak/application you can view further information such as the description,picture, and even user ratings. If you want, you can write a review about the application.
Fedotov also made it clear that the HackStore will never feature any pirated content. He wants to ensure everything remains legal, and is home to content Apple rejects.
