Frequently Asked Questions
If you’ve got questions about AppCake, we’ve got the answers:
What is AppCake?
AppCake is an unofficial app store with a difference, allowing you to sign and install IPA files. There are lots already pre-installed into the app store, but you also have the option of downloading your own files via the internet – you must only use a reputable source to ensure there are no issues with the file. AppCake used to be a jailbreak tweak, but, because of a lack of jailbreaks, the developers opted to make it available for all to use. It is easy to use, designed similar to the official app store, and it offers plenty of ad-free content.
Is it Safe?
Yes. You don’t need to jailbreak to use it, and you are not asked for your Apple ID at any time during the installation process. We tested it and confirmed that there are no nasty surprises hidden, and it won’t harm your device, data, or compromise your privacy.
Will AppCake Affect My Device Warranty?
No. You don’t require anything special to download it, and you are not jailbreaking, which means you are not hacking into the iOS root or compromising any security that Apple has in place. Your device is safe from external threats, too but, if you have to take your iPhone or iPad in for repair and you are unsure, simply delete AppCake and reinstall it later on.
I Get an Installation Failed Error – How Do I Fix it?
The easiest way to fix this is to delete all instances of AppCake from your device and try installing it again – it’s likely down to a conflict between versions.
Do I Need to Jailbreak to Install AppCake?
No, just follow the download guide above, and you will soon have AppCake on your device without having to install a jailbreak first.
Can I Install it On My Android Devices?
No. At this moment, AppCake is only available to iOS users, and we haven’t heard anything to suggest the developers will be releasing an Android version. If you see websites claiming to have the APK link, they are likely to be fake, so steer clear of them.
AppCake has always been popular as a jailbreak tweak, and it is proving even more so now that anyone can use it. Download AppCake onto your device today and enjoy all it has to offer.
