What is Cydia?


While the iOS platform has a chorus of well-developed apps that are designed to provide great services to the user,  there are many apps that are not free. Adding to that there are premium versions of several apps that can take a big toll on your bank balance too. This is precisely where Cydia comes into play. Cydia is a third-party app developed by Jay Freeman. Cydia helps iOS users to install software not authorized by Apple on jailbroken iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices.
