Jay Freeman(aka Saurik), the creator of cydia store for iOS has confirmed that his team are working really hard to bring out the Cydia store for Mac OS X at the 360|MacDev conference. Just like the iTunes app store, you will be able to access cydia app store right from your Mac.

Mac OS X Cydia


Currently, Cydia Installer has been used by about 10% of all iPhone users, or about 10 million devices. There are well over 30,000 packages available for iOS, and a lot of open source material can be downloaded from Cydia. He refers to Cydia as a store for things that are not apps, but extensions of what iOS devices can do.

Freeman felt that the same type of store would be useful for Mac OS X devices; the result is a Mac Cydia, which will be available “within weeks.” With today’s news that the Mac App Store will not support in-app purchases, something that is critical to the freemium app model that is so successful in the iOS world, a Mac Cydia might be just the web store for a number of Mac developers.

Developers who are interested in getting their products into Mac Cydia were told to contact an employee at patrick at saurikit.com for further details.

All you have to do now is sit back wait for the Cydia store which will be released within weeks from now! Stay tuned to tipsneeded for more interesting updates!
