    Hey all,
    is it better (will it provide cleaner install etc.) to install apps by downloading and then loading in itunes, or by downloading on the ipod using installer/icy/cydia?
    Also, if i install an iTunes app through cydia will it show up in itunes?

    Generally the apps from the app store will not cause your ipod to crash etc... as much as it could if it was with a cydia app, as the ones in the app store are generally more tested and are cleaner code, but im not saying thats always the case, as some experts also develop jailbroken apps

    When i mean using itunes, i mean (theoretically) downloading an app and loading it into itunes.
    vs
    theoretically downloading this same app through cydia/icy/installer

    Cydia doesn't have iTunes apps. iTunes store and Cydia are two different things.
