    I downloaded an .ipa file directly on to my iPad. Is there an app that would install it? I used iDownload and it says it couldnt find an app to open it with.:confused:

    Sure no answer. You only get .ipa files via app store. So any .ipa just downloaded from the web would be illegal. And in this terms, it's not a discussion topic for a forum.

    So we advocate Jailbreaking, which gives you Cydia, which gives you (EDIT) and about 10 Repositories that Ive found to contain illegal downloads.

    Its the whole "guns don't kill people. People Kill people. Don't blame the gun."

    Believe me, I get it. I do buy all the programs I have permanent on my iPad. I use this process to try out the product prior to buying. Yes, some of them have free versions. But alot don't and I want to be satisfied with my 2.99 purchase.

    Don't worry, Won't happen again. I'll find actual technical answers in a setting more conducive to my needs. Thanks for the name calling. "Go Apple!"

    ............whatever...........:cool:

    Try looking at Hackstore, imodforums, or redmondpie for the answers u seek. I do get what ur saying though. Why have it avalable if its soo wrong. Its not people trying to resell the apps. Jailbreaking in itself is considering the same as installing cracked apps to most folks. So we support the lesser of two evils? Lol. Apple hates jailbrake n hates cracked apps but we condone jailbrake n not the other? It should be to each their own as long as they not trying to resell the app in any shape or form. People do honestly want to try out the app first. Not all free versions give u the fullblown experience to test out. Juss saying...lol

    You are welcome, pirate. And for the record, Cydia does not deliberately ship with any repositories which host pirated software. These have to be added by pirates themselves... Jailbreak does NOT equal piracy.

    and, for the record, Jailbreaking is NOT illegal, so it is discussed and promoted freely without fear or repercussion.

    And you know, OP, from the tone of your posts, I would really doubt you have valid licenses and receipts for every piece of software (app or otherwise), movie or song on your PC/MAC/iPad.

    Use file. Find the .ipa and tap it and file will install it. I think it does .deb files too.

    Since jailbreaking is so "freely accepted and promoted", go into apple store with that song saying how u jailbreak yours and see how quickly Apple voids ur warranty..lmfao its not illegal but Apple has a legal trick up their sleeve for that. By voiding your warranty if its found ipad is jailbroken or ios operating system has been tampered with. Apple or employees in apple store doesnt promote jailbrake at all. They actually will tell u itll break ur device...lol to keep u or scare u from doing it..lol

    Before lynching people for bootlegging ipa files, consider the case of VLC, or many other unapproved apps that apple has turned their backs on

    I'll help you out.

    Drag and drop the ipa into itunes under Apps. And then sync your apps with your ipad apps and it should allow you to drag and drop as you please.

    If it doent work, you might need to go into Cydia, go to sources and find appsync for your iOS version and install it.
    there's a youtube vid on how to install IPA files. its not hard.

    I really want to say the easiest method of doing this but i know mods will either edit or close thread once i mention it. Lol. Its a single app from cydia and will fullfill all ur "testimg out of apps" needs. ;-) thats all i can say without violatimg forum rules as i really do like this forum. We have to respect forum rules, as not to make them look bad, bit in the same since, if we are jailbraking, which apple hates and does not condone, we should be able to talk about this topic. Only a very small percentage of people knlw of this. I was a noob to it and now an ipad master of it..lol good luck...keep searching n reading inbetween the lines and u will figure it out. Sorry i cant give details or name of app thatll fullfill those needs.

    OH yeah forgot about that method.

    OP, go to youtube, look for a guy name "Bobtotproductions" and he has 16 videos up. One of them titled "Free app installer" or something like that..that is the one you want.
