Jailbreaking has changed in the last year or so; since iOS 10, with new security features and update after update, Apple has certainly made things very difficult for the jailbreak developers, if not impossible. iOS 11 has not proved to be any better, but things are looking up in another way. A series of app installers has been released, giving us back some of Cydia without needing the jailbreak and one of those is called IPA Library. Different from the other installers, IPA Library is full of iOS IPA files, including some of your favorite ++ modified apps, like Snapchat++, Pokémon Go++ and Spotify++. You can get all the details about IPA Library and what it offers by clicking the link and read on for more details about how to install it on your iPad.

If you don’t see it, the installation has not been successful; repeat the steps
Method 3: Android Only
Android users, while they have a more open platform, cannot install a jailbreak and they can’t use the IPA files to get the extra apps and games. IPA Library has been updated to work on Android devices so now they can have some of the extra content. Click on the linked post to find more information and a download guide.
Stop IPA Library Crashing :
IPA Library is not an official app and it will stop working a few days after you install it. This is because Apple revokes unofficial app certificates and there is only one way to stop it. You need to install a VPN tool called NessTool [ext link] which works to protect the certificates. Find out how and get a download guide by clicking the given link.
Popular IPA Library Apps
IPA is packed with apps, but some are more popular than others, including these:
AirShou is a popular screen recorder, released into Cydia at a time when there were no decent screen recorder apps to be had. Through the years, it has retained its popularity and now anyone can use it without needing to jailbreak first. AirShou offers you the ability to make professional videos, using an intuitive interface and on-screen controls to record in 1080p at up to 60fps and add stereo sound to your videos as well. There are plenty more features available so click the link and find out more about AirShou.
Snapchat++ is a modified version of the official Snapchat app, a popular social media app. With Snapchat++, you get all the stock features plus the ability to spoof your location, take advantage of a stronger recorder strength, apply in-app customizations, and a good deal more besides. Find out all the details about Snapchat++ at the linked post
Popular IPA Library Alternatives
While IPA Library is a good app installer, it won’t suit everyone. There are alternatives that offer different content, and these may be better:
- Cydia Impactor
Cydia Impactor has been around for a long time and has now become one of the best methods for IPA file downloads. Cydia Impactor is responsible for signing the IPA files, enabling them to run, because Apple will not do it. The apps downloaded in this way are not official apps and this is one of the best ways of getting them to work. Cydia Impactor is simple to use and is compatible with both Mac and Windows. Click the link to find out more about Cydia Impactor [ext link] and how to download it.
AppValley is one of the more comprehensive and popular of the third-party app installers. It is full of useful content, including some Cydia tweaks, IPA files, modified content and plenty of paid content, all for free. At the linked post, you will find more details and a full download guide for AppValley
Although jailbreaks may be in short supply, third-party apps and installers are not. While they won’t replace Cydia, they each offer a decent interim solution so, while we are waiting for more jailbreak news, download IPA Library, try it and tell us what you think of it.
