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 , HipStore, and Extensify but the best by far is one called vShare.

vShare is an app installer [ about ] that contains all the paid and premium apps and games you could possibly want, as well as a wide range of themes, ringtones, wallpapers and other content, all free. It used to be that vShare was only available through Cydia and, while you can still get it that way, there are now other ways to download vShare without needing to jailbreak first.

Method 5 : Android Only
Android users have not been able to enjoy all that iOS users have over the years. Even though the Android platform is somewhat more relaxed and less restrictive than iOS, its users can’t jailbreak and that means they miss out on all sorts of features like downloading paid apps for free and downloading modified apps like Spotify++ and Snapchat++. With vShare being given Android support, now they can experience some of those features so follow the link below to get the steps to downloading vShare on Android:
When you download vShare, and download all your apps and tweaks from it, make sure you download Anti Revoke [ext link] as well. This tool is the only way that you can stop the app certificates from being revoked and the only way that you can stop these apps from crashing.
Popular vShare Apps :
There is plenty to choose from in vShare and two very popular inclusions are the following apps:
AirShou is one of the most popular screen recorders ever released and, while it could only be got through Cydia at one time, that is now no longer the case. Originally released to provide a basic function that seemed to be missing from the iOS, AirShou quickly became very popular and has now been updated with support for all iOS versions and devices and without the need to jailbreak first. Find out how you can get AirShou [ext link] through vShare by clicking the given link.
Snapchat has always been a popular messaging app, used by millions of people daily to keep in contact with friends and family. However, over time it has been noted that, although the standard app is a good one, it doesn’t have all the features it possibly could have. Snapchat++ was developed to provide those extra features, such as increasing record strength and customizing part of the app user interface, alongside the standard features of the app. To download Snapchat++  on your device, follow the given link for a full tutorial
