    Icy is like cydia, it connects to the sources and refreshes them for you, but, in my opinion, cydia is better

    Icy is pretty much RipDev's version of cydia. Its there if you want it, try it out if you like. Info Link

    I personally prefer Cydia, never really liked Icy

    Icy is evil.


    But seriously. Why didn't this "RipDev" critter join the Cydia team and IMPROVE Cydia ? Why reinvent the wheel ?

    Ripdev took over Nullriver to make Cydia's competitor in the 1.1.x days, installer was the king back then. Then when 2.0 came out cydia took over and the new installer was crap and buggy.

    Ripdev are famous for charging loads for things that aren't really that great and are buggy, I don't see them teaming up with saurik any time soon

    Kate is a collection of tools which have lots of different uses. Causes lots of trouble though, I've always avoided it, didn't want the hassle of restoring.
