    It's faster because the sources read quicker than cydia's.
    Doesn't installer use xml and cydia uses apt?

    Icy 1.1; it looks pretty good.

    Recent Packages;
    Support for More Info / Screenshots links in packages;
    When there are package updates available, Updated tab will be shown by default in the Installed section;
    Supports Conflicts package specification;
    Added custom Cydia header to requests so Icy is indistinguishable from Cydia from the repository point of view now;
    Moved Install/Remove buttons to the toolbar;
    Shows console log for dpkg failures;
    Recursive dependencies supported much better now;
    Support for WinterBoard so Icy should be themeable now;
    Removed Essential tag in the Icy's own info (mistakingly copied from Cydia);
    Some cosmetic and minor fixes;
    Some code profiling to speed up the UI even more.

    Yep. They did that on purpose so now repository hosts cannot block Icy, and they loose revenue. It has it's good and bad points to it.

    I think if RipDev continues to feel the need to block ads then they should atleast pay a certain ammount to the repos for there loss.. If anyone knows the want for money, it's RipDev.

    For the end-user, it's much faster and easier to use. No ads or slow loading speeds.

    Personally, I think I'll stick with Cydia, to support the developers.

    I hate rip-dev, they are launching a product that is going to cause loss of revenue to a lot of repo's. I seriously request you guys not to use icy. Imagine if these repo's start asking for payment to host/download packages!!! I think cydia must now be updated so that it uses a different authentication process to repos!!

    that is there choice icy is made to be fast and the adds slow it down so they do not have to apply the adds if they do not want to

    also the first icy theme is up its called icyGraphDept its ok not bad for the first theme
