appDowner: A BitTorrent-Powered App Store Alternative For iPhone

There is going to be an alternative to App Store for jailbroken iPhone (competitor to Cydia, Icy and Appulous) using BitTorrent technology. This new app store is called appDowner.

appDowner was created by developer Alec Renolds back in 2008 with the idea to create a simple BitTorrent client for the iPhone. Unfortunately the project was put on hold for a while due to personal issues. But the dev- Renolds, is now back at it and has expanded his original concept to create a complete replacement to Apple’s App Store.

Unlike the App Store, there will be no app approval process and most applications submitted will be available for download within a week. appDowner can also be used as “client for non-app related downloads”, which in other words means you’ll be able to illegally download music directly from the app.

appDowner is still being worked on and it should be available in Cydia for download soon.
