If you are an old-hand at jailbreaking, then you will be aware of the benefits that Cydia brings. With the lack of jailbreaks that can be used by everyone, we have had to look elsewhere to find access to paid apps and games without having to pay for them. There are several alternatives, such as Mojo Installer [ext link], HipStore, and Extensify [ext link] but the best by far is one called vShare.
