Jailbreaking is a wondrous thing because it gives us access to tons of apps, mods and tweaks that we can use to modify our iPhones and iPads. It used to be that you could only get paid games for free by jailbreaking but that has changed with the release of a new tool called vShare Pro. You don’t need to jailbreak to get this but the steps to installing it are not quite as straightforward as just downloading an app from iTunes. However, to help you along, there is a little tool called vShare Helper.
