The Highly Anticipated OS X HackStore Launched Now Available For Download, Bring Cydia Apps And Tweaks To Mac
Up to me i am not a Mac owner and after reading the news about the possibility of the Mac’s cydia-like store that will be live soon, i tried to get OS X onto my intel based-PC successfully . Well all the iOS users like the OS X systems too running 10.7 Lion and Mountain Lion (10.8) on it and most people like me, are eager to try something that ever happened before like this.
May be three weeks ago when i read the news about the United States-based programmer called Andrew Fedotov adding the final touches to his developed HackStore project for Mac. Despite its high anti-piracy notice, his OS X HackStore sees no further issues in ripping off the official App Store’s interface.
Actually this HackStore was an upcoming Mac App Store alternative for all unsupported OS X apps and tweaks. This is the latest innovating application that want’s to provide worldwide developers with a place to distribute apps not allowed in the official Mac Store for apps.
While the Russian programmer said that he got an idea of the HackStore in the last December 2011, and was inspired by the Cydia and App store, but he didn’t liked the limitations of Mac’s App Store. Since then he and his team worked hard and made their best app. Today they told that they are glad to present the latest HackStore app for everyone.
The programmer who has managed to get the project into a workable and releasable state now made it available for public download from the official website. The HackStore released as an unofficial App Store for Mac-based systems as apps and extensions which is obviously set to generate considerable amount of interest.
He also made its app’s “No piracy apps here, forever and ever” as a motto, while HackStore definitely makes everyone dance with its tunes. The visualization and appearance along with navigation makes HackStore looks like almost a carbon copy of the official OS X App Store, with added individual categories mixed up with different featured packages, includes any new features or additions to its top navigation bar. Finally, its supported by the Russian language and search bar is also available to be used at the users desire.
There’s lot more to say about the new innovation of Mac-Cydia like app store “HackStore”, which contains a grid-view of all applications and packages that are considered to be a noteworthy and feature rich that are extremely familiar with visuals having app icons. Contains a download option that saves the desired package to the Mac in a compressed zip format.
When you install it on your Mac system and see the right-hand side bar of the main view that contains an area where users can either create, or log in to an existing HackStore account.
This is not it! but lots more to grab. This HackStore will be updated periodically with improvements and more apps. Growl is used to handle notifications on Mac. You can get more details of the OS X Cydia store like Mac App Store from here.
The HackStore is available for download right now onto your OS X, directly from the developer’s official site to get downloaded the DMG file now. Enjoy and experience the fruit taste!
