I noticed last night in an email from Greg Hughes that Wi-Fi Sync launched on Cydia due to Apple’s AppStore rejection.
He had rather cumbersome directions to get to the app in Cydia. It got me thinking that there must be a better way.
Searching online didn’t reveal anything. A tweet and email to Saurik, aka Jay Freeman, hasn’t been answered and may never.
My research lead me to the solution.
It should look familiar to any developers. I share so anyone, bloggers, developers can add in-Cydia app links onto their websites to help users.
For your app, just grab your package ID (see third photo), and put it after package/
Update: 3/11/11 – Just noticed this isn’t working with my current version of Cydia 1.0.3366-1. humm..
Update: 3/29/11 – Cydia 1.1.1 released today corrects the bug that removed the ability for direct package / app links into Cydia.
