Recently, the famous CyrusHub (a Cydia Alternative or 3rd Party AppStore) launched a brand new designed app with great features. The update was published a few days ago. Looking at the future of this brand we talked with CyrusHub of this new update and the future of CyrusHub.
EmuTime: Welcome CyrusHub once again to EmuTime News! How are you today?
CyrusHub: Doing great! How are you?
EmuTime: Great, happy to have you here today! CyrusHub has a new update to its app, tell me why this new update? What inspired this new update?
CyrusHub: Thanks for having me! Back in May, we announced and launched CyrusHub Refract. It did well, and lots of users liked it. But by the end of the month, we decided that it wasn’t the best we could do. We cut the update, and made CyrusHub offline and unavailable. We got to work on CyrusHub Mist. Mist was completely designed from scratch, infrastructure included. This was a big feat, taking up about 2 months. Some users were impatient, but many were patient, and we thank them for that. This update is faster, more efficient, and cleaner looking. We went through tons of design iterations, as we have one of the best designs you can find. We finally landed with the one we currently have, and it inspired the rest. We pulled a lot of ideas and features from older CyrusHub updates, so you can find them if you’ve been with us for a long time. CyrusHub Mist is the CyrusHub. It is a culmination of our past two years into one app.
EmuTime: Amazing how you collided all this versions of CyrusHub in to one perfect version. Obviously Cyrus has always been defined by its originality. What is unique and special of this new CyrusHub update?
CyrusHub: Yeah, it was definitely a big feat. Like you said, we are defined by our originality. It's been in our app for the past 2 years, starting off with Cyrus Installer. I think the most special and unique things in Mist are CyrusPicks and CyrusThemes (more on that later). CyrusPicks allows our team to choose the best, most popular apps, and show them to the users. This way, they can see what we recommend, which is definitely helpful. CyrusThemes, which is coming soon, is a project we've put off for a long time. We have been trying to put themes into Cyrus for while, and some updates have had it, where other have not. After the CyrusThemes update, it will remain constant. CyrusHub tries to simplify everything for our users, and that's the core of our product. It takes 3 clicks to download an app, maybe even less. Other sites are clunky, filled with ads, and hard to understand. We try to eliminate all these things.
EmuTime: That’s important. Simplicity is always great. Our last interview you had already a huge community. Tell me, how has the community grown in this time?
CyrusHub: That's a great question. To be honest, the past 2 months(before Mist) our community was growing a little bit, with many users sad that CyrusHub was taking longer than expected. But when we gave the launch date last week, things definitely jumped. A lot of users of other apps stop using their app when their questions don't get answered. Because of this, we try to respond as quick as possible with simple solutions. Even if we don't have an answer, we try to point them in the right direction.This is how we keep our community together. We have been having giveaways and CyrusHub betas, all for our amazing community. And I believe that it will only get bigger. In the past few days from the launch, we have had tremendous amounts of support. We strive to be the next app a user download's when looking for third-party apps. Why? Because nobody else does what we do how or like we do it. There was a time where app hubs were a big thing, but if you don't put the effort, time, or thought into it, you won't succeed. We take a lot of user feedback into CyrusHub. We gave a closed beta a while ago, and those beta testers were YouTubers, general users, etc. They gave lots of info and feedback that just influenced CyrusHub. What makes CyrusHub the app it is today is the users and the amazing community. Always has, always will be.
EmuTime: That is a outstanding answer. I am so happy that you guys keep it flowing in the direction of growth.
I know that this update of CyrusHub was released recently. However, what is the future vision or goal of CyrusHub as a brand?
CyrusHub: Thank you! It's people/sites like you guys that allow us to increase our great community's numbers. Once again, a great question. Back in 2017, we had a service called CyrusVIP. It's goal was to give non-revokable apps (like BuildStore) for free. It was definitely possible, but we didn't have the infrastructure to continue past a month. But that was all in the past. I think the vision now has condensed, while becoming more specific. Like I said, CyrusThemes is our next big project, coming in the next major CyrusHub update. We plan to work with all the theme creators we have worked with in the past, more jailbroken theme creators, and users that have their own themes. We have made a infrastructure that makes it super easy to do all of that. But we do have something on top of all that. Since before our original launch in 2017, we have been good friends with @heyeased, or Mysterious Wallpapers. You might know him for the hidden dock, folders, etc. wallpapers. For this service (still, 100% free like everything on Cyrus) we will be collaborating with him more, as well as having the best of his wallpaper collection at hand. We love collaboration with other creators, developers, you name it. This is a big update, so we are working hard to make sure it is the best it can be.
EmuTime: That is an awesome future goal. That means awesome stuff is coming to CyrusHub. Go ahead and invite the people who is reading this to check CyrusHub out.
CyrusHub: Thanks for reading this great interview, thanks to EmuTime! Check us out @CyrusHubApp and https://CyrusHub.app
EmuTime: Thanks Cyrus for been here with us today. Keep up the good work that you guys have been putting.
Thanks for reading this interview! EmuTime is working on a updated Rating and Review of CyrusHub which will be coming out in the upcoming days. Remember to stay tuned to our website and to follow us on Twitter @emutimestore
We leave you with a great video by a friend YouTuber called “AppleTechVideo” of CyrusHub new update!
Hey there folks! We bring you a new Rating and Review with a Interview with a Cydia Alternative.
Called ExtraiOS. ExtraiOS has a new version that we will be Reviewing and Rating. The interview will let you know more the developer of ExtraiOS.
We are gonna do the Review first, then the interview with ExtraiOS and then our review.
ExtraiOS 5.0 was updated a few days ago. When I updated I was surprised to see how beautiful the app looked. The installation process was simple and reliable. The Web App UI Interface is in a iOS 11-12 look. Beautiful shadows. Home page is perfectly made. With changing images, app of the week and everything really App Store feeling. The Apps section is really nice. There an amount of apps available but ExtraiOS still needs more variety of apps. Specially plus apps and tweaked apps.
But still 5.0 Version was launched not much time ago and we know they’ll add more apps. When you select any of the Apps you get a nice description page which is nice.
The app was a Dark Mode which looks beautiful on the UI. Specially on black devices.
We will talk more of ExtraiOS but first let’s see the interview with ExtraiOS with EmuTime News.
INTERVIEW WITH EXTRAIOS:
EmuTime: How did ExtraiOS started?
ExtraiOS: ExtraiOS started as an exploration of the possibilities of apps, tweaks, and themes outside the Apple App Store on non-jailbroken devices. Actually, I started an original site called Andromeda Apps before ExtraiOS but ended that store to start from scratch with ExtraiOS.
EmuTime: What has the inspiration to create ExtraiOS?
ExtraiOS: The inspiration to create ExtraiOS came from all the other great 3rd party app stores and Cydia alternatives in the community. Originally, ExtraiOS was merely a way to learn about the workings of 3rd party apps and tweaks on iOS.
EmuTime: What vision you have for ExtraiOS ?
ExtraiOS: The future vision for ExtraiOS is to bring it to a point where it is independent of other 3rd party app stores and Cydia alternatives. The goal is to create the easiest and most pleasant experience for our users, to make sure it is optimized for the latest iOS firmwares, and to always keep it cost-free. Watch out for ExtraiOS 5.0 soon. It will be a radical change from our past updates and should be exciting!
EmuTime: The name ExtraiOS, where did it came from?
ExtraiOS: The origin of the name ExtraiOS is pretty simple. The service is based on and designed for the iOS operating system but it provides apps, tweaks, and themes that are “extra” or more than what is normally expected or included in the operating system.
EmuTime: How did you ended up knowing of No jailbreak or emulators?
ExtraiOS: I first learned about the non-jailbreak community and all the possibilities of it like most people probably do. I wanted to take more control of my iDevice and be able to customize it in ways that stock iOS would not let me. I stumbled upon one of the more prominent 3rd party app stores and immediately became interested in the possibilities.
EmuTime: Random questions.
Favorite Food? Daily Driver Smartphone? Favorite Movie? What are you afraid of?
ExtraiOS: Favorite food: Pasta
Daily Driver Smartphone: iPhone 7
Favorite Movie: Interstellar
Afraid of: Losing all of ExtraiOS’ files! Haha!
So definitely come check out ExtraiOS 4.0 at http://www.ExtraiOS.weebly.com and install it right on your home screen to get quick access to a lot of great features! Thanks to EmuTime news for the great interview and don’t forget to keep checking them out for all the latest jailbreak/non-jailbreak news and updates!
EmuTime: Thanks for been with us ExtraiOS!
ExtraiOS 5.0 UI is amazing! Beautiful and Simple. Perfect for any iOS device. What ExtraiOS needs to work on? More apps. More variety. That’s all they need to work on.
How is can I get ExtraiOS 5.0 on my device?
Check our great video tutorial by J3DV describing how to make the process.

Hey there! Here we bring a new interesting report.
Cydia Alternatives are the main focus where we all can get emulators, tweaks, plus apps, hacked games and more apps. Ignition is a Cydia Alternative which signes it own apps and it’s working on a VIP version too.
This will be the order we will be going today:
The first thing is the installation process. It’s simple add to home screen safari shortcut and works fine.
Then the UI interface is what you look at. The interface is really different from the others. It’s like a iOS 12 lock screen. You at first see notification explaining how the app works. Because at first it takes time to understand the app. I like the go for an original interface design. It looks nice. In iOS 12 lock screen for those that don’t know the notification group by a specific app. There is a good amount of variety of apps you can get. To install any app just tap a group of the section you like. Search the app you want and then on the app you want swipe right to left on top of it. You’ll see on the Igntition app saying “Preparing”. A pop up will come up asking you to install. You select install and it will start installing on your HomeScreen.
I like Ignition wants to go original but the interface is not so friendly. If we where on iOS 12 by now then it may be a different. But still not everyone will get use to it. But keep going Original.
EmuTime: How did Ignition started?
Ignition: Ignition was actually started several months ago. It never hit it off and was inactive about 3 weeks after being developed solely by @notjosephs. Then about a week before Electra was released @i0sd3v joined the team as a developer and business partner and it hit it off and here we are.
EmuTime: It’s been not so long since it’s fame is rising, how does it feel this fame growing so fast?
Ignition: The fame is awesome. Most of it is probably short lived, a lot of it is directed to us by @coolstarorg , @Pwn20wnd and @nullriver . After electra updates are over a lot of the current people will most likely quit using us, but it’s helping the community and we hope to grow from this.
EmuTime: What is the main goal of Ignition?
Ignition: The main goal of Ignition is to help the iOS community. The biggest 3rd party app stores right now are @TweakBoxApp , @AppValley_vip and @TutuApp_vip and we hope to learn from their mistakes and achievements to be one of the best out there.
EmuTime: How long did it took to create Ignition?
Ignition: The current design was created in about 3 days, but it’s constantly being tweaked. We are creating new things now that will probably take another month to finish.
EmuTime: The name, Ignition. Where did the name come from?
Ignition: Ignition means to start something. We hope to start up the iOS community to be bigger than ever before.
EmuTime: There was an inspiration to create Ignition?
Ignition: Our inspirations were @TweakBoxApp @TutuApp_vip and @AppValley_vip . They have all done incredible things and really are awesome!
EmuTime: Now we go to our “Random Questions” section which we do every time on EmuTime News-
What Smartphone you guys have?
Ignition: I run an iPhone X on 11.3.1 for my daily driver. The other developer uses a 7+ on 11.3.1 also for his daily driver. Both are jailbroken using our signed Electra MP apps.
We are a fairly new 3rd party appstore that has been recommended by @coolstarorg , @nullriver , @Pwn20wnd , @FCE365 and several other popular iOS developers. Everyday we come out with something new and creative things, both for Jailbroken and Non-Jailbroken users. If you would like to support the ever-growing iOS Community and us, please consider paying our website a visit. You won’t be dissatisfied. Also thanks to EmuTime News!!
EmuTime: Thank you Ignition for this great interview. We hope you guys have a great run and get far. Now let’s pass to our rating!
Our Rating is 3 Stars!
Why 3 stars? Ignition is surely one of the best Cydia Alternatives out there. A great 3rd Party App Store.
But the UI needs to be more friendly, maintain an original look but easier to use. Keep working hard Ignition and you’ll get far. And make our rating grow more stars cause in the future we will re-rate the app. You can get Ignition app at https://ignition.fun/ .

iOSEmus was the most important Cydia Alternative over years. Now there are lot of Cydia alternatives.
iOSEmus still today is qualified one of the best out there!
Let's start with the Interviews so we can learn about iOSEmus history and new UI.
First "DubD3V", creator of the latest iOSEmus UI.
EmuTime: Welcome Dub to EmuTime News! Tell us. How did you ended making iOSEmus new UI?
DubD3V: Basically was looking for some web applications that were in need of some new UIs and stumbled on iOSEmus and it's funny because I used @ImAiiR service growing up so I showed him what I could do then it started from there.
EmuTime: That’s really a dream then! AiiR was super important for Emulators and Cydia Apps survival in the beginning and for some years. Tell me about iOSEmus UI, it’s iOS 11 style correct? Why that style?
DubD3V: Yeah it is the reason why I chose that style is because it was the first thing that came to mind hope to better the UI in the future as there is always room for improvement .
EmuTime: Now the new iOSEmus Icon has a change of look, you voted on that too?
DubD3V: Not really, its dope tho.
EmuTime: Yeahhh, looks really nice! So, you said you grown up using iOSEmus. How did it feel to work with AiiR and iOSEmus?
DubD3V: Honestly felt great when he said he liked the UI I developed for him .
EmuTime: Now Random Question Section. Ready?
EmuTime: What Smartphone you carry on your pocket daily and the model?
DubD3V: Brother, an iPhone 7.
EmuTime: Now completely out of topic question. Favorite Movie of all time for you?
DubD3V: The Social Network.
EmuTime: Ohhhh nice! Thanks for being here and answering our questions!
DubD3V: No problem!
EmuTime: Hey there and welcome to brand new interview by your favorite news form “EmuTime News”. There is Cydia Alternative really famous called @iOSEmusTeam . Today we have the owner, developer and App Signer AiiR. Welcome AiiR!
EmuTime: Thank for being here! So first of all. How did the idea of making iOSEmus came to you?
AiiR: Well, I started iOSEmus when I was in high school, and I was bored in my computer class. I was really into non-Jailbroken apps for iDevices, so I went to look for how I could start my own website, for me and my friends, so we could get our favorite apps, all in one place. This was when the date-trick was very well known, and wasn’t patched. The site started through weebly, a free site maker, but from then to now, a lot of changes has happened, to get what I host now.
EmuTime: Wow, so you didn’t know coding when you started?
EmuTime: Cool. I imagine at first took some work. So why the name iOSEmus and why the Red Color?
AiiR: The name is simple. iOSEmus split up, "iOS Emus" is just iOS, the operating system software for iPhones, and Emus, short for Emulators. For the color red, no real reason why. I just like the color red :)
EmuTime: That’s awesome! So tell me when did iOSEmus had its boom as famous.
AiiR: Well, I would say the first time it got popular, was when I was first hosting signed emulators, like nda4ios, and GBA4iOS. At that time, I was really stressed out with school, and nearly stopped working on the app. I'm glad I didn't stop working on it though. The one time that made iOSEmus very popular, was when Pokemon GO was first released. A ton of people were coming to iOSEmus to get a hacked version of the game. A few times this caused my site to go down, which wasn't shocking, considering the traffic load on the small server I had at the time.
EmuTime: Yes iOSEmus has huge boom of fame. How did you feel because iOSEmus got so famous?
AiiR: I was very happy to see traffic going up. "Wow, people are actually using this thing I made one day when I was bored", is pretty much the thoughts I had when I seen that. But at the same time, it made me feel stressed. At the same time the app was getting popular, I was in senior year of high school, where I had to really focus. This lead to some times where an app needed an update, but I had no time, or physical energy to do it. I was fine though, whenever I had spare time, I'd push out updates, and I'd let people know.
EmuTime: Yes it was hard ! So any future goal for iOSEmus ?
AiiR: Right now, I don't really have anything in mind. I've done all of the things I've wanted to see done with iOSEmus, so I guess right now, my goal is to keep it running for as long as anyone is using it. I've always tried my best to make sure the app is user-friendly, and I don't want anything getting in the way of that.
EmuTime: Yes, iOSEmus is easy to use and I like that. How many people use iOSEmus today??
AiiR: When it comes to daily users nowadays, it's not many. Depending on what's happened with certificates, daily visits range from 100-5000. It all depends on what people need from the app. I'm fine with not much traffic though, as long as people are happy with the apps they've been able download, I'm happy.
EmuTime: Now we go to our random question section! Ready?
AiiR: As ready as can be lol.
EmuTime: What Smartphone you have on your pocket? Also model and color.
AiiR:None in my pocket, but the device I use is an iPhone 6, though soon I should be upgrading. Not sure to what though. Regular black / grey. I didn't have a choice.
EmuTime: Yeah that happened to me too Lol. That was the only color available and that was what kept. Now really random question completely out of topic. What’s your favorite food?
AiiR: Am I allowed only 1 choice? or can I list off like, 3?
EmuTime: You can say all the food you want to mention haha!
AiiR: 1. Pizza. 2. Chicken Nuggets / Tenders. 3. Baked Spaghetti. Can't go wrong with any of these.
EmuTime: Haha, great choices. Now last question. What do you personally think it’s the best Emulator for iOS?
AiiR: I really enjoy RetroArch. While it may not be the best in a UI or easy-to-use standpoint, it works really well, especially when it comes to having multiple emulator cores, for different consoles.
EmuTime: Yes, completely understand. I think the most variety of consoles are in RetroArch. Well AiiR thank you for being here with us. It’s been a pleasure. Please if you wanna say any message to those who are reading us and also invite them to use iOSEmus.
AiiR: It's been a nice interview, thanks for having me. To those reading this, thanks for reading the interview, first of. And if anyone is looking for a one stop place for popular Apps and Games that aren't on the App Store, be sure to check out iOSEmus!
EmuTime: Thanks once again AiiR! Make sure to follow him on Twitter as @ImAiiR !
- REVIEW OF iOSEMUS -
iOSEmus first need to be installed.
The website is simple UI and easy to install. Anyone can understand how to install it with no help.
The installation was easy and fast with the "Profile" or "MobileConfig" File on settings.
Once you have it on your homescreen, both icons you can install look beautiful.
I'd say one of the best icons of cydia alternatives. Once entering the App you will see this new iOS 11 style UI.
First of all I think that on the home page of iOSEmus the icon logo should be bigger. It's to small.
Then you'll see most popular section with some apps which I think if should show more Apps there.
Then the Apps tab. Simple UI and great variety of apps but most importantly are signed. Love the check mark and x to say if its signed or not (signed is when a app is working for installation). Once you wanna install any app by tapping the app you want, it will take you to Safari. Once on the installation page of the app you'd like, You have the icon with the name of the app. The "Get" button really similar to the App Store one and looks really nice. Below that you will see a great description of the app you are about to download. Gotta say I like the descriptions, they are very professional.
Going back to the App there is the "Changes tab". There is not much to say about this one. There is only a small text saying whats new. I think this specific tab need some work. It's too simple.
Then is the Info tab. Where you can learn what they used to create the app, Web App version, learn of the developers and who signed the apps so you can enjoyed them.
iOSEmus is really well made. Overall I think there are small details to work on the UI but everything else is perfect!
Love the Red and white colors maintaining the company style. It is iOS 11 style but still original for iOSEmus.
They have lot of apps signed and working. Simply great.
Now EmuTime Rating is...
Our Rating of iOSEmus is 3.5 Stars. "It's all about Signed Apps".
We qualify iOSEmus as one of the best Cydia Alterntives.
How can I install iOSEmus?
Easy! Go to the website - iosem.us .
Then click one of the 2 icons you like the most.
A pop-up will come up, select allow.
Then it will take you to settings.
Select Install on the top right corner.
And then done on the top right!
That's it! Go to your homescreen and you will see it there.
Thanks to AiiR and DubD3V for the interviews.
Thanks to all who are reading this report.
Hope you all enjoyed.

Hello and welcome to our daily readers to your favorite news source. Today we bring you a No-Jailbreak Cydia Alternative which is currently developing a VIP version. Now please welcome the Cyrus Developer.
EmuTime: Welcome Cyrus! How are you today?
Cyrus: Good! How are you?
EmuTime: We are great and really thankful for you been here! Tell us. Why did you created Cyrus? What inspired you to create it.
Cyrus: No problem! We created Cyrus because we felt all other services took a long time to reach the end point, which is installation. What inspired us was just the design and simplicity of iOS itself and what we could bring to this community.
EmuTime: Wow, created for the community! How you as yourself learned about this no jailbreak world? About the apps as GBA4iOS, Movie Box and others.
Cyrus: Via YouTube.
EmuTime: Yeah I my self learned about emulators with the famous and only Operationidroid when he showed a preview of GBA4iOS 1.0 . So the logo has the arrow down and multi color inside. Why that logo for the Cyrus Company?
Cyrus: Aw, nice! Well, we want it to be a symbol that stands for something we think represents us.The arrow represents the downloading, how it’s just an arrow, nothing else. The colors are a spin off on our old icons, with their five colors, which is also in our title.
EmuTime: Yes, I remember the original one and got to say this new logo it’s awesome and as I said before Cyrus is beautiful in UI. Cyrus had a sudden boom of fame and YouTubers started making videos. How did you feel when this happened?
Cyrus: Well, first, overwhelmed. So many things happening at once. But then, we were excited to have a good user base!
EmuTime: Right! How many users does Cyrus currently have?
Cyrus: On Twitter, over 12K. A few months ago, we were getting at least 1,000,000 views a day on the App.
EmuTime: Impressive! When did Cyrus started? Cause that’s a lot of users and I wanna know how much time it took you to get all those users.
Cyrus: July 7th 2017, I remember because that was the day @RedmondPie wrote an amazing review on us.
EmuTime: Yes big day for your fame! Wow, growing so fast! I really got to Congrats you! Now a last few questions. Is the VIP version gonna be the same Web App of Cyrus or on a Native App itself?
Cyrus: Native is our dream, but till then web based.
EmuTime: Lot of luck with that and any of both we know it will be more beautiful than your current version. Will the UI be similar or different?
Cyrus: In the next updates, it will be something revolutionary.
EmuTime: Revolutionary, can't wait to see that. Any future vision or goals for Cyrus and a good bye message for all those who are reading, also invite them to join Cyrus Installer.
Cyrus: Well, to one, get pretty well known in this community is a goal. Thanks for reading! We hope to see you at @CyrusInstaller and https://cyrusinstaller.com .
EmuTime: This has been EmuTime News reporting you the truth and only the truth. Thanks Cyrus for this interview and see you all soon on our next reports! Make sure to follow us on Twitter as @emutimestore for news!
