Some iPhone users who find that the stuffs from the App Store are not for them, there are other resources that are available from the internet. However should you choose to use these resources, make sure that you have a strong will and heart to jailbreak your iPhone.

We all have to admit the internet is a great resource for everything, legal and illegal, approved and otherwise. So basically all users are free to access every file and application they find suitable for their gadgets and devices.

One resource is Cydia, an alternative to the App Store which contains applications that have not passed the Apple standards. Cydia was created by a hacker known as Jay Freeman, also known as saurik.

PDANet is an alternative to AT&T’s limitations and the fee of its services. Set the impromptu network on the PC, connect the iPhone via WiFi then start downloading using PDANet.
