The alternative App Store for iPhones

The alternative App Store for iPhones

When it comes to the App Store, Apple’s philosophy around apps on the iPhone has been consistent. You need to follow its rules, or you’re not allowed on iOS. But app developer Riley Testut has a new strategy for distributing mobile apps outside the App Store, and it’s called AltStore. It’s an alternative app store for the iPhone that lets you install any app, without needing to jailbreak your phone or install an enterprise certificate. He built it initially as a way to distribute his Nintendo emulator Delta, but now he thinks it could support all kinds of software Apple doesn’t allow on the App Store. And the best part: anyone can download it.
