iMods

iMods has posted a new video walkthrough of its long-in-the-works app, and it’s made lots of progress. Unlike the Extensify app that we previewed last week, iMods is a true Cydia alternative that aims to provide users with a prettier UI, ratings, video previews, and more.

The video is impressive. It shows how tweaks are installed, navigating the various sections of the app, and more. Of course a video can only go so far. Trying iMods out for ourselves will be the ultimate test as to whether or not this is a viable Cydia alternative, but I have to admit that it looks good based on the video preview.

Many so-called Cydia alternatives have come and gone over the last few years, but I believe that iMods might be the first one to gain some actual credibility and traction. This is mainly due to the fact that Comex—a well-known, well-respected, and validated hacker that can makes things happen, is at least helping out in some capacity with the project. It’s unclear how deep Comex’s involvement is with iMods, but it’s been reported that he’s assisting with Cydia Substrate alternative.

Of course, Cydia itself has made significant strides over the past few months,a nd they’ve all been well received. It’s now open, allowing jailbreak developers to build out new Cydia-centric features, and its received several UI and UX enhancements as well.

From the looks of things, the iMods project is far along in the development process. As stated though, a video is just a video. Actually going hands-on with iMods will tell the full story. We’re looking forward to being able to do just that.

Fortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait too much longer in order to try iMods, as the team is aiming for an end of summer release. Since Summer ends on September 22nd, that means that it’s possible that iMods could be just a little over a month away.

What do you think about the iMods preview video? Are you impressed?

    Looks good. Looks very Apple like.

  • Mr_Coldharbour

    Looks very inviting. I don’t see this as a Cydia competitor, I see it as a complement to Cydia. If/when this does come out, I’ll use it alongside Cydia.

    I still hope Cydia will remain dominant. I would hate to see this store getting installed in jailbreaks of the future over Cydia,

    Cydia needs an update. I wish there is a standard for devs when they post tweaks such as pictures or videos and a better change log explanation. I would also like to see reviews and a rating. I know there is a tweak for this but having it as a default would be nice. Maybe this will out more pressure on saurik. I appreciate his work but it needs a major overhaul.

    My main problem with Cydia is going through all the tweaks to see if its iOS 8 ready, I’d like to see them listed by working iOS versions in the future

    Personally, I find Cydia more appealing layout wise as it uses the real estate of the screen better rather than cluttering it up with useless spaces and such.

    In terms of functionality, this offers a consistent and more than likely ad-free experience which I would prefer as all to often are we greeted with detail views that are useless, unfinished or simply don’t load sometimes.

    It will be interesting to see over the coming months how it look and function as at the moment it’s not winning me over.

    If we’re all unique, then no one is unique.

    @JeffBenjamin in the fourth paragraph, second line, it should be and not a nd, just a minor mistake, nothing huge. But I just noticed it and thought maybe you would like to change it in case readers came back to this post.
