What is Cydia?
Cydia is a third-party, independent installer application for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Cydia is developed by Jay Freeman (Saurik) and it’s actually much similar to Apple’s app store. Cydia allows you to download tons of tweaks & utilities that you’ll need to make the best out of your iOS device. Cydia brings you many applications that can be downloaded either for free or for a small amount of money.
Because Cydia offers you what Apple doesn’t. For example, Apple doesn’t give you the ability to change themes of your iPhone. Every smartphone owner would always like to change his mobile theme. On Cydia, you can install a tweak called “Winterboard” which allows you to download and install themes on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Is Cydia safe?
Cydia is not 100% safe since almost every jailbreak app is approved on Cydia. This increases the chance of malicious apps getting through too. You should only download apps & tweaks from trusted repositories.
Repositories like ModMyi and BigBoss are the safest ones.
