Install vShareRELATED: How to Install vShare in iOS 8-8.4 without Jailbreaking iPhone

When things give you a run for your money (or time), the best thing to do is look for alternatives to Installous. We’ve been doing that for a long time now. There was AppCake which we reviewed a while back. However, you don’t find any other software like vShare (formerly AppVV) which has now been updated to work with iOS 7 too.

Note: here’s how to untethered jailbreak iOS 7 on your iDevice (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) using Evasi0n7 jailbreak.

With vShare, things are a bit different from your usual Installous alternative. It’s a Cydia tweak as much similar to Installous as it can be but there are several variations which make vShare quite interesting and popular.

But first, let’s go through vShare installation.
You’ll need:

  • Jailbroken iPhone/iPad
  • Cydia installed
  • A working internet connection

How to Install vShare on Your Jailbroken iPhone or iPad Running iOS 7:

#1. Get AppSync
Plenty of repos now host AppSync. The official vShare repo has AppSycn for iOS 7. To get AppSync, follow this:

  • Open Cydia
  • Go to Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> and tap on Add
  • Type ‘repo.appvv.com‘ and tap on Add Source to add the repo
  • Now search for ‘AppSync 7.0 (IPA Crack) ‘ install it and you’re done!

#2. Get vShare
After you’ve installed AppSync, do the following:

  • Search for “vShare” on Cydia
  • Tap on vShare from the search results and Install it!

#3. Download and Enjoy Apps
That’s it! Now get going. Look for apps on vShare’s interface and download them directly. AppSync will get them installed and synced on your iPhone/iPad.

Why vShare?
vShare is much better than Installous in terms of the download process because it lets you download the IPA files directly. This beats having to wait for downloaders, time limits and the captcha thing.

vShare also brought out recent changes and updates that make it iOS 7 compatible for all that are jailbroken.

  • roxanne

    this was working fine for me for a few days but now everytime i open the
    vshare app it just says can’t download data. Please check your network!
    any suggestions. many thanks,

    • we’re hearing this from a lot of people. I think it’s a server load issue but it might also
      be due to erroneous AppSync and other stuff. Try re-installing vShare after removing it and
      waiting a few hours.

      • WAKAO

        Yes i have AppSync 7.0+ by (BYA Apps) v3.3 now it’s just “Installation Failed” won’t do shit
