What is FlekStore?
Although you can get a free version of this app, it is more like a taster of what’s on offer. To reap the full benefits of this unofficial store, you should purchase a yearly subscription. FlekStore is a premium alternative to the iOS app store and to the many other third-party stores available today. As well as offering you unfettered access to thousands of modified and tweaked apps and games for free, it also provides you with the ability to use a developer certificate for signing external IPA files.
One thing you should be aware of is that, even though you pay for it, it is still classed as unofficial, and Apple may revoke the app certificate. If less than 180 days have passed since you purchased the app store, the developer will restore it for free. If more than 180 days have passed, you will be offered a discount on your next subscription to activate the store.
So, what do you get for your money? FlekStore offers you free access to thousands of apps, including unlocked games, where all the in-app features and bonuses are free, modified apps with cool new features and many more, There are jailbreak utilities, game emulators, screen recorders, tools and more. The store has two modes – dark and white – and you can change this in the app settings.
