Some great applications, free or fee-based, just went POOF from Apple’s official APP store overnight without official reasons, and you cannot re-install them anymore. The ugliest case is – for those paid applications, you cannot even get a refund thereafter. Pissed off and thinking how to deal with this situation? There’s a remedy, but hard to swallow.
You can find ways to download and install its IPA file from out of App Store – IPA download websites or the apps’ official website. But installing apps that are missing from the app store can be another obstacle, especially when you are unwilling to jailbreak your iPhone.
DearMob iPhone Manager
Manages your files and data in iPhone applications as if your devices were already jailbroken:
★ Delete and install IPA Files in batch.
★ Access data of file-sharing enabled applications.
★ Extract, delete or add specific files to applications directly.
★ Showcase app version and size in detail.
It would be way more convenient if you already have a backed-up version of your lost application, or you can get them from your friends’ computer. Obtaining those removed apps online could be a herculean task to achieve. When the application is recently off-shelf, its developer might provide a direct download link for you to install. However, if the application is long gone, There are many IPA download sites out to get applications, but not all of them are workable. Some are for jailbroken iOS devices, some require that you install Cydia Impactor, some boast that they are for non-jailbreaks, yet tricking you into endless ads pop-ups.
Also, many online IPA file download sites have turned into an application or too out-dated to support the latest iOS 12 (let alone, iOS 13) and there are not many left to choose from. However, we still manage to find a list of workable *.ipa file download sites for non-jailbreak iPhone/iPads.
iPhonecake.com or APPCAKE – A decent IPA files download site still workable in 2020
One of the best and still workable IPA download sites to date. It offers many free versions of fee-based applications in the Apple App Store – Doodle jump, Pokeman Go… for non-jailbreak iPhone/iPads, its iPASTORE service can be a good choice. It also has an iOS App version called Appcake to download tweaked apps directly to your devices.
AppCake also has a forum that you can go to, so that you can exchange thoughts with other people who use the site, primarily mobile game enthusiasts.
iphone.mob.org – another good IPA download website to get free games and ringtones
iphone.mob.org is also a good place to go for free iPhone games and ringtones. It offers a slew of more popular games than Appcake can offer, including Don’t Starve pocket edition and many more. The site has a clear column of genres for games, ringtones, applications, and customization. Very easy to navigate and choose.
