iFunbox is a third-party file and download manager for the iPhone which has become popular as a great alternative to Installous of late. Installous 5 is not yet compatible with iOS 6. Many iPhone users complain that it is not working on iOS 6. Most users report an “Invalid IPA or API unavailable error” when they try to access Installous on iOS 6
In this scenario, iFunbox comes as a great Installous 5 alternative to install .IPA files on your iPhone. The software works on Windows and Mac, and comes with some really cool features besides the IPA download thing which it’s famous for. Let’s take a look at some important things in iFunbox, and notably, how to download and install cracked apps on iPhone running iOS 6 through iFunbox.
iFunbox is in v2.0 right now, with an enhanced UI that makes it easier to handle installation of apps, copying of songs and general file management. Since all the thing about photos, music, videos is taken care of by iTunes, it’s the app installation that gets maximum focus. And quite naturally, that’s why the software has become famous for.
If you’re only going to use i-Funbox for installing apps you bought (and have the ipa files), you don’t need to jailbreak your iPhone then. But for cracked apps, you will need to jailbreak.
How to Use iFunbox to Install Cracked Apps:
The method is pretty straightforward and simple.
- Download .ipa files from sites like http://iphonecake.com.
- Open i-Funbox v2.0
- Connect your iOS device to your computer
- In the left-panel of i-Funbox, choose your device (which shows up)
- Double-click on User Applications from the left-panel list
- Now, right-click and press “Install App”
- You’ll be asked to choose an .ipa file: choose the one you just downloaded.
- i-Funbox will finish the installation and notify.
- That’s it!
- Try opening the app from your iPhone.
