While Cydia is the best third-party App Store for the iOS device, it requires the users to jailbreak their devices because Cydia does not work on non-jailbroken devices. Zestia is said to be the best Cydia alternative. If you want to download Zestia on iOS without jailbreak, here is how to do it.
As I said, Cydia is a great third-party App Store for iOS devices and has tons of apps and games. But, a lot of iOS users don’t want to jailbreak their device just for installing third-party apps as it jailbreaking the iPhone and iPad involves risk of bricking the device and worse is voiding the warranty.
