Thread: why are some apps in /Applications while others in /User/Applications

    Default why are some apps in /Applications while others in /User/Applications
    So I am wondering why some of my apps are in /Applications while others are in /User/Applications/[crazy string of numbers]

    It makes it really hard to do any sort of modification since it's not very easy to see what the apps in the /User/Applications directory are.

    very easy: native apps (that come with the firmware) and jailbroken apps are in /Applications. Appstore apps are in /private/var/mobile/Applications/

    you can find most appstore apps pretty easily by executing
    find / -iname "*appname*"
    on your iphone
