iPawind: CodeSign Utility that brings alternative iOS apps

4 July 2016 - 7:37 am, by

Some iOS users like to jailbreak their devices to install custom apps or adding tweaks to existing iOS apps, but since jailbreaking process being hard these days with last versions of iOS (9.x and above) there is no way to add these tweaks without having a Jailbreak. However, utility called iPawind brings a solution to install apps outside App Store with code signing process on iOS device.

According to Wikipedia CodeSign mean:

Code signing is the process of digitally signing executables and scripts to confirm the software author and guarantee that the code has not been altered or corrupted since it was signed. The process employs the use of a cryptographic hash to validate authenticity and integrity.

Why using iPawind

It brought as an alternative to Jailbreak tweaks by uploading custom iOS apps that contains needed tweaks already (this is most wanted feature on iPawind). Other features are managing sources and tweaks if you have a Jailbreak already directly from iPawind so no need to launch Cydia to do that, control the sources of downloads, uploading your own apps, and special store for apps separated by categories. The first version of iPawind is released on beginning of 2016 with a good price which is $15 (now is $20 annually). No need to jailbreak iOS device, and doesn’t matter if you have last iOS version or not it’s compatible with iOS 8 and above.

Custom apps without jailbreaking iOS device

Some apps that available on App Store lack of nice features especially social apps, and one of several examples is feature of uploading and downloading pictures and videos on SnapChat via amazing Jailbreak tweaks like Phantom for Snapchat.

Customized apps feature on iPawind allows you to download special versions of available apps on App Store with nice missed features, so you can download for example a custom SnapChat app that includes Phantom tweak without installing a Jailbreak. Another feature on iPawind is ability to change custom app name before download it (e.g SnapChat ++, SnapChat P+, yTube, .. etc).

Example of some great iOS apps

These are some examples of great iOS apps that I liked and available on iPawind:

  • Snapchat + Phantom
  • Snapchat + AppPlus
  • Instagram + AppPlus
  • Twitter + AppPlus
  • YouTube + AppPlus
  • F.lux
  • iFile

Almost of these apps above I got them before from Cydia by jailbreaking my iOS device, but currently no need for that after using iPawind!

How to download it?

Firstly you need visit iPawind website and what you need to download it is:

  • Purchase an annual package from iPawind website
  • Check your order details on your email, it includes the link, your Account ID, and Account Password that will be used to download iPawind on iOS device (if you didn’t recieve it, check the email from Spam folder)
  • Open link on Safari browser, tap install button,
  • Install UIiD verification Profile on your Setting app, it verifies your device to install iPawind on it
  • Install iPawind app on your iOS device!

Note: iPawind is not free, it will cost you $20 annually, I think it’s a good price for best tool!

Support the developer

Some users waiting for Jailbreak release on latest iOS versions from Jailbreak teams who suffer either from discovering vulnerability in the latest iOS version or their builds not working well with users!

So this amazing app deserves an appreciation due to given missing features on some iOS apps, if you like it please support the developer by use and share the, give your feedback to improve app. Enjoy!
