    Mac OS X doesn't have application restrictions; I didn't call you a dumb***, but I gave you a facepalm due to the title of the thread and the reason for Cydia on Mac. But, I already took back the facepalm.

    What's even worse is some of his videos are just ads, the other ones are painfully obvious guides no one needs or really badly done reviews of stuff.

    Mac doesn't run iOS (knowing Apple though, Nanos probably have .app folders and similar groundwork for running their mini-apps)… I guess it would be cool to a have an installer (common noun) on it though, but I don't think it would have the computing power either way.

    It runs a very basic OS. Nowhere near the processing power required.

    He can't do a million things at once (update essential packages for the jailbreaks that almost every other package depends on, optimize Cydia, and port Cydia to Mac, etc.), but this is a problem.

    Would it have to be jailbroken? If so, that's terrible.

    To those wondering why something like this is really neissisary or what it could be for you should really read my previous post (:

    Oh and Apple comes out with an app store for mac so saruik has to limit himself to mac only? no windows cydia? I guess windows is just already to easy to get hardcore mods and it gives you desktop widgets... and it sucks. Not to mention that it wont be limited in what you can easily get which is exactly what apple is trying to do.

    Saurik is making cydia for mac because he realizes what apple is trying to do. Apple is trying to make mac just as much of a walled garden as iOS. But you say "we can still download mods and stuff not allowed in the Mac App store through the internet".... well then you dont realize that once the mac app store hits developers of mac apps will not only explode in number, amount of apps, and number of iOS developers porting over but these devs will see the obvious potential of the mac app store to make their apps a million times easier to find without needing so much publicity and advertisement so they will gladly follow all of apples "guidelines" to get their apps in the mac app store. They will probably even abadon sales from their website in replacement for selling on the mac app store or merely have their websites as supplements and support with a link to the mac app store.

    Then all of the develeopers left making things that cant go in the mac app store will lose HUGE amounts of interest and money in their apps/modifications unless they either revise it for the mac app store or make something else new entirely because after a few months of the mac app store being out and all the apps in it EVERYONE with a mac will only shop for apps on the mac app store because it will be a million times easier to find stuff and get updates for their apps.

    However, saurik realized that in order for these mod developers to not completely get destroyed in the mac app store madness and be able to get the interest of people looking for apps and mods and to make it much easier to find these things and update them much like the mac app store, cydia for mac is ESSENTIAL!

    After the mac app store... downloading applications from websites will be a thing of the past... on a mac.

    Thank you saurik for realizing this. You are my hero!
    Now... themepark and Snow Leopard theming is a pain in the a** with very few themes out there... how bout a winterboard for mac at some point?

    Oh and poetic_folly if your here... I know you abadoned the modmymobile site after the failed modmymoto and other android modding site... but I can gaurentee if you make a modmymac.com site after Cydia for mac comes out it will be a huge sucess and I will donate a 4 figure number towards building the site and the costs involved.

    Please list the restrictions that Apple has set forth as to what is and is not allowed in the Mac AppStore. Otherwise, your entire argument is moot.

    Oh, and the word is, necessary.

    Shame on you for autonatically assuming negative intent. It must suck going through life believing everyone is bad.
    That doesn't mean she thinks everyone is bad. If you see a guy on the corner wearing a bandanna and holding a knife are you going to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he is a chef or something? You can't give most people the benefit of the doubt any more. You can't get a lady in bed and see a bunch red bumps down south and assume she got stung buy a pack of bees. It did kinda sound like you ment you could get ANY app like the pirates say they can. It was a misunderstanding.

    Exactly. Cydia for os x is not needed. Apple will never lock it's Desktop/Laptop os down like iOS, it would be a fail for sure. OS X and beyond will never necessitate Cydia. If cydia os x let me download and install cydia apps from my Mac to my iPhone that would be cool, and a time saver when I have to restore and rebalance my consumer rights (jailbreak) my iPhone.

    Are you serious do you guys not read the other articles? There are almost as many restrictics are there are for iOS. You have to at least know theres no betas, trials, or inapp purchases. And a while back somewhere it had the whole developer thing listed with all the restrictions that basically covers any modifications to mac os x inlcuding themes. It also has to go through a very similar approval process like iOS. No kexts allowed either so thatd be a bunch of system tools and such.
    Heres some more but it isnt even everything:
    Mac App Store: App Store For Macs Announced, Restrictions Revealed | The APPera

    Apps with “Easter Eggs:” Apps that include undocumented or hidden features inconsistent with the description of the app will be rejected.
    No beta apps: Apps in “beta,” “trial” or “test” versions will be rejected.
    No duplicate apps: Apps that duplicate apps already in the App Store may be rejected, particularly if there are many of them.
    No drinking/drugs: Apps that encourage excessive consumption of alcohol or illegal substances will be rejected.
    No License Keys: Apps that require the entry of a license key will be rejected.
    No Java?: Apps that use deprecated or optionally installed technologies (e.g. Java, Rosetta) will be rejected.
    No auto-run: Apps that are set to auto-launch or have other code automatically run at startup or login without user consent will be rejected. Similarly, apps can’t automatically add their icons to the dock or desktop.
    No copying Apple!: Apps that look similar to Apple Products or apps bundled on the Mac, including the Finder, iChat, iTunes and Dashboard, will be rejected.
    OS X may not be changed: Apps that change the native user interface elements or behaviors of Mac OS X will be rejected.
    No rentals: Apps containing “rental” content and services that expire after a limited time will be rejected.
    No RSS Readers?: Apps that are simply Web clippings, content aggregators, or a collection of links may be rejected.
    No data collection: Apps cannot transmit data about a user without obtaining the user’s prior permission and providing the user with access to information about how and where the data will be used.
    No Chatroulette clones?: Apps that include games of Russian roulette will be rejected.
    Define “objectionable:” Apps that present excessively objectionable or crude content will be rejected.
    No porn: Of any kind. (Porn as it’s defined by “Webster’s Dictionary,” that is).
    No gambling: Of any kind.
    No file-sharing: No P2P apps – apps that enable illegal file sharing will be rejected.
    Religious apps must be for educational purposes only: Apps may contain or quote religious text provided the quotes or translations are accurate and not misleading. Commentary should be educational or informative rather than inflammatory.

    For me, this falls under the spread-too-thin category. Jay, seriously, stop trying to get Cydia everywhere and make it work better where it already exists damnit!

    Since taking over Rock, one of the very FIRST changes to Cydia should have been adding app backup/restore. Nope. Sections - still a joke. And could you possibly make purchasing apps any more difficult? Making me jump through hoops to buy a $1.99 app is likely to make me forget about it.

    Cydia on the iPad, still a complete joke. It's been around for 8 months now, yet rotation only just finally came with the latest Cydia release, and it doesn't even work properly at that. Rotate to landscape on the main Cydia screen and the right-column text overlaps the left column buttons. Rotate to landscape while on an app's info page and you quickly realize that it was completely pointless to do so and that now you see even less information and have to scroll more.

    These should all be relatively easy things to fix. Cydia has been around long enough now that the user experience should be relatively painless. Many would likely not have cared so much that "Loading Changes..." took forever had the overall experience not been so painful.

    Hell, I won't even bother to jailbreak my ATV2; although there is no Cydia for it now, it scares me to even imagine using Cydia in an environment where your control consists of only 7 buttons: up, down, left, right, ok, menu, and play/pause.

    Frankly, if I had a newer Mac with the latest OSX, I wouldn't even waste my time with Cydia. Based on experience it will be a dumbed-down, advertisement-plastered UI, the shortcomings of which will NOT be made up for by the user-experience, and overall it will just not be worth the hassle.
