Cydia is an package manager app that enables iOS users to install custom apps not available in the Apple Store. Because Cydia is not available in the Apple store, people have assumed that jailbreak is required to download and install it. This is not the case. All you actually have to do is go to the Cydia download page (noted above), and follow the instructions.

What is an emulator?

An emulator is a piece of software (usually free) that you can download and install on your device that imitates another operating system.

We see them a lot when desktop users want to use iOS or Android apps on their desktop or laptop computers, when the apps aren’t otherwise available for desktop.

We like emulators and recommend them a lot. However, emulators can take up a lot of the resources from your device, so check the system requirements carefully before moving forward with your chosen emulator to ensure that you’ll have a good experience.
