TutuApp is an alternative to Cydia that has complete source management built-in. Users can choose from several different packages already available and download them directly to their iOS devices.
TutuApp users also get the ability to manage packages they already have installed and update them when needed. TutuApp is open-source; it is Completely Free and is fully compatible with all iOS 7 and above devices ( infographic ).
The only downside to Tutu App is that, although it is being touted as an alternative to Cydia, it can’t replace it, nor can it replace Substrate simply because there are certain packages that rely on Substrate to work. Tutu App doesn’t have Substrate compatibility, but it will work perfectly well for those packages that don’t need it, mostly those that are already built-in to it in the same way that Cydia comes with several repositories already available. It has plenty of apps and games to choose from, including some of the best Cydia tweaks and unofficial apps.
Why was TutuApp Released?
That is a good question, and the answer appears to lie in the fact that Cydia has not seen an update for iOS 10 or iOS 13. The TutuApp Dev Team ( twitter ) decided to rebuild the Tutu App from the ground up. The original Tutu App is very much outdated now with old-school graphics and user interface, whereas Tutu App is now more than ready and capable of taking on today’s jailbreak world.
Downloading Tutu App is pretty easy, and there are a few ways to do it. It is also worth noting that it has been made available for Android devices, too, so they can get a taste of what it’s all about. The links below show you how to download TutuApp and how to delete it should you need to.
More and more of these Cydia alternatives are becoming available now that Cydia is not being updated. And, while they are never going to be direct replacements, they can fill in some gaps in the short-term.
