A few days ago, we wrote that the new team promised to release Installer 5 – an alternative to Cydia's app for jailbreak tweaks and apps with iOS 11 and iOS 10 support.
Now, the team working on the Installer has shared screenshots and a video teaser of the application. The screenshots show the Featured, Install and Update tabs. The app looks like App Store. Featured tab displays popular tweaks. The Install tab has different categories of tweaks and apps such as tweaks, themes, tools, apps, games, etc. And the Update tab displays those tweaks for which updates have been released.
The 8-second video shows the interface and navigation of the app.

Installer or Installer.app with a blue icon is the first file manager for jailbreak tweaks and apps that came out before Cydia and App Store. The interface has been completely redesigned and will definitely appeal to those who use the Cydia app that hasn't changed in years.
However, the Installer team will have to work hard to convince users to switch to their updated app from Cydia. People will simply be too lazy to reinstall their old tweaks. Moreover, Cydia's creator regularly releases its updates for new jailbreaks, which is always a plus for users. However, it still doesn't hurt to have a Cydia alternative. Let's see how popular Installer 5 becomes.
