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.
