    waaay back in the day there was appsnapp..+installer

    it was like the best all the way through 1.1.X....

    then came 2.0

    everyone who even mentioned cydia got flamed and there were endless competitions and comparisons between the 2
    "cydia has more NO INSTALLER HAS MORE"

    now, only the diehard fans still use installer and get as much as they used to out of it...

    but cydia is obviously king in that area...

    do you think installer will ever bounce back?

    I think cydia will eventually even up to installer. Its all about what they offer. For example if installer did ad free or some other stuff some people would move to installer. personally my first ipod touch that i had bought had 2.0 software so i pretty much was born into cydia and going to installer was like learning to walk all over again. Its weird but i guess i could get used to it if installer did some upgrades LIKE FOR EXAMPLE update their apps because seriously installer has NONE i mean dont they ever update and stuff. I hope their working on something big though.

    RiP Dev was starting to get a little greedy, not just with the fact that they were asking you to pay for Kate, but also that they made Kate incompatible with Winterboard so that you would have to use one or the other.

    Ok so can't people use Cydia AND Installer? Is there something that allows you to only use one?

    Can you not use the 2 at the same time???
