This is a bad news for Jailbroken users who use the Installous app and may have to find other similar download apps for their iOS devices.

Installous is an installation package for jailbroken iPhone, iPad, and iPods that lets the user to install unofficial Apple applications. The app also allows users to preview any Apple apps before the purchase.

Installous also allows the users to search for apps on Cydia and other app databases, and once the app is found, it can be downloaded to any iOS device.

Users can also remove apps, undo specific changes and update their currently installed apps with the latest software version.
