Click on the image to look at the app in more detail;
Today an application has appeared in the AppStore that is called “Cydia” this application is not the infamous third party installer, it is in fact a game. The developer has in effect copyrighted Jay Freeman’s AKA @saurik’s application.
While this app is getting a lot of promotion from tech blogs such as ours, and the jailbreak community, we advise you don’t install this PAID application. It is not an official version of the third party installer!
Article from Wikipedia;
Cydia is a software application for iOS that enables a user to find and install software packages (including apps, interface customizations, and system extensions) on a jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Cydia is the main independent third-party digital distribution platform for software on iOS. Many of the software packages available through Cydia are free, and it also includes several hundred packages for sale through the Cydia Store payment system with a commission setup similar to the App Store. Most of these packages focus on providing customizations and modifications (often called “tweaks”) that can only run on jailbroken devices (since the App Store is limited to distributing self-contained apps)
Cydia is a graphical front end to Advanced Packaging Tool (APT) and the dpkg package management system, which means that the packages available in Cydia are provided by a decentralized system of repositories (also called sources) that list these packages.
Cydia is developed by Jay Freeman (also called “saurik”) and his company, SaurikIT. The name “Cydia” is an allusion to the Codling Moth, with a scientific name of Cydia pomonella, which is the proverbial “worm in the apple.
