Cydia Adds New 'Manage Account' Feature

Cydia Adds New 'Manage Account' Feature

Posted January 19, 2011 at 3:35pm by iClarified · 16129 views
Cydia has been updated with a new 'Manage Account' feature that lets you easily view and install packages already purchased.

You can find the new feature right on the Cydia homescreen. Only packages purchased using Cydia's payment system will be displayed. If an application uses its own payment system it won't be visible on the list.

You can view a few screenshots below...

Clearly, some of the people below are idiots. Supporting independent developers for the cleverness and hard earned time creating these products should be a given, whether in the form of a donation (which I have made several) or through a purchase. I like this new addition to Cydia. I'm still waiting for the brand new version of Cydia that was promised some time ago as well as a stable jailbreak for the last version of iOS. I would also like to see a dist category in Cydia that lists only commercial applications I can purchase. I HATE having to sort through hundreds of releases to find something I have to pay for that I don't recall the name of. A category for purchasable apps (commercial) would be nice. A few e-mails to the admins of Cydia have gone unanswered however. No support in the jailbreak sector unfortunately. A price that must be paid for free tools I suppose.

I agree, "non-free" filter would be nice. At least in the sections tab in cydia you can filter out categories like the useless ringtones cydia is flooded with

Paid for a good majority of my applications is always a good thing for developers :]

This looks Like a great app.

This is a great feature...something Apple's store doesn't even do. Unfortunately, I get the sense that jailbreaking on the iPhone is coming to an end. There hasn't been a public release in a long time for the current iOS, and no real word on any upcoming release. Not that I didn't appreciate everyone's hard work, but it's something to think about. If iOS is now essentially locked down, the party's over.

I disagree. Jailbreaking will be around for a while. If u keep up with the developers on twitter and rss feeds you would know that they are strategically releasing updates to avoid wasting exploits.

Ehm, 4.2.1 is jailbroken for all devices the newer ones unfortunately need a untether that you can only do if you have shsh blobs for 4.2 beta 3. Comex were going to release another untether but it were delayed and now is on hold for 4.3 All the current iDevices are jailbroken "for life" as the current jailbreak methods use hardware exploits and i have a feeling someone would find a new exploit for any new hardware fixing the current one.

Dude. You have to read a little bit about the jailbreak community. They are saving the exploit for 4.3.

Lovely feature! Now I know why one of my apps never got an updated, they made a new one for 4.x :p Still wondering though, when are we getting that app backup feature? You know, the one that Rock had and that would come to Cydia "soon" when the bought Rock...

Folks, quit the whining. A few bucks for some countless hours spent writing it. I ain't to much to ask for. If you even knew what it involves. Some people are just really that dumb. iFunbox..? I bet a good chunk of people here don't even know what var/ mobile is.

WTF are you saying?
thebasa - January 19, 2011 at 4:05pm
this is a fantastic feature. if only apple would do this for the app store so we don't have to guess which apps we might've bought and commit to buying a new one before knowing if we bought it already. silly apple.
dancj - January 19, 2011 at 6:34pm
That was my immediate thought too. I've been wanting the same functionality in the app store for ages.

Wasn't all about Free ? Dev Team, what happened with all that shit ?
GG - January 19, 2011 at 4:39pm
Ur stupid...bottom line. There r plenty things available for free, if a developer decides to sell a product, u r not FORCED to buy it numb nutz
Leonick - January 19, 2011 at 4:46pm
What GG said aboive, also, the Devteam arent making all the Cydia apps if that's what you think It's always been all about allowing apps and tweak apple would not, i for one don't mind paying 1$ for someone great work on a tweak...
