Thread: App in both Cydia AND App Store?

  1. #1
    Default App in both Cydia AND App Store?
    I recently downloaded an app called Discover from Cydia. I am in the Apple Store right now, and right above me is a picture containing the apps icon. Imagine my surprise. So I go on the App Store and, behold, there it is. I tried to install it...but it tried overwriting the Cydia one!

    Any idea what's going on???

    are you saying that there is an app that you downloaded in cydia but you also see it in the app store? if so is this cydia one legal?

    That's exactly what I'm saying. Discover is in both Cydia and the App Store. Like I said, I noticed it because I have the Cydia one installed, then today at the Apple Store I was looking at the big poster thing they have on the wall with the iPhone and all of the app icons, and I saw the Discover icon and i was like WTF???? So I went on the App Store, and there it was. Then I tried installing it and the phone tried overwriting the Cydia one!!!

    The Cydia version can access your full filesystem - the AppStore version is restricted to the sandbox Apple allows. They are from the same author.
