Frequently Asked Questions

These are the answers to the most frequently asked questions about AppCake:

What is AppCake?

It is one of the most popular unofficial app stores, offering a different experience to other similar stores. As well as pre-installed content, you can also find your own IPA files on the internet and sideload them into the app, increasing your choice of apps and games immeasurably.

At one time, AppCake was only available by jailbreaking your device but because jailbreaking all but disappeared for several years, the developers tweaked their app to make it work without needing Cydia. Now anyone can use this user-friendly, ad-free app store.

Is AppCake Safe?

Yes, mostly because you do not need to install a jailbreak to use it and you don’t need to provide your Apple ID at any time during installation. We also tested and found nothing that can compromise your data or device and your privacy is protected too. If you do install external IPA files, though, you must make sure they are from safe sites.

Will AppCake Affect My Device Warranty?

No, because you are not jailbreaking and you don’t need special permissions to download it. This means you are not compromising your device security. However, there are a couple of tweaks in the store that may affect how your device works. If you are at all unsure, simply delete AppCake before you take your device to an official store, and reinstall it later.

How Do I fix the Installation Failed Error?

The simplest way is just to delete AppCake from your device and reinstall it. The likely reason is a conflict between earlier and later versions of the app store.

Do I Need to Jailbreak to Install AppCake?

No, just follow our installation guide to install it on your device without jailbreaking first.

Can I Install it On My Android Devices?

Not right now. AppCake is only for iOS at the moment and there are no plans to introduce an Android version at this time. If you see any links on the internet that claim to be an AppCake APK file, they are fake and may harm your device or compromise your security.

AppCake was always a popular jailbreak app and now it’s even more popular as an alternative to the official app store. Try it on your device today and see how it compares to the iOS store – millions of people are already using it right now so come and join in the fun.
