Cydia For Mac is Confirmed, Will be Coming Soon

Jay Freeman has confirmed that Cydia is coming for Mac OS X. Cydia  is previously available only for iOS devices iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. It will allow those developers that do not want to go through a complicated process of approval of submitting apps in Apple Mac App Store. Freeman confirmed this during a presentation in 360MacDec conference. You will then be able to access cydia app store right from your Mac.

Cydia For Mac
Apple is working on their Mac App Store to launch it as soon as possible as they mentioned earlier they will launch it in next 90 days, Saurik (creator of Cydia) has also confirmed that their team are working on Cydia to bring it to Mac and it will be release soon with in next few weeks.

According to TUAW:

Currently, Cydia Installer has been used by about 10% of all iPhone users, or about 10 million devices. There are well over 30,000 packages available for iOS, and a lot of open source material can be downloaded from Cydia. He refers to Cydia as a store for things that are not apps, but extensions of what iOS devices can do.

Freeman felt that the same type of store would be useful for Mac OS X devices; the result is a Mac Cydia, which will be available “within weeks.”

With today’s news that the Mac App Store will not support in-app purchases, something that is critical to the freemium app model that is so successful in the iOS world, a Mac Cydia might be just the web store for a number of Mac developers.
According to Jay Freeman, Cydia for Mac will be available within weeks. Developers those are interested in getting their apps to feature in Mac Cydia can contact an employee of Cydia at patrick [at] saurikit [dot] com for more details.
