vShare, quite rightly, deserves its spot as the most popular unofficial app store.  Not only does it provide you with thousands of tweaked games, modified apps, tweaks, emulators, and more, but it is also free and doesn’t require you to jailbreak before using it.

vShare App Features:

Not only are you getting everything for free and without a jailbreak, because of the sheer number of apps and games, vShare offers you four distinct categories, making it easier and quicker for you to find what you want to download:

  • App Store Apps – lots of official apps and games from the official store
  • Exclusive Apps – unofficial content you won’t get from the official store – emulators, tweaks, streaming apps, screen recorders, and more
  • Tweaked Apps – stock apps tweaked with new features.
  • Modified Games – stock games unlocked and with new features and all in-app features for free
