Jailbroken iPhone app stores merge into one

Unauthorised iPhone app stores join forces

The two leading alternative App Stores for jailbroken iPhone devices have merged into one with Cydia taking the reigns at Rock Your Phone.

The merger provides the single biggest iTunes alternative for iPhone users who have jailbroken their devices in order to run software that Apple has not approved.

In the next few weeks Rock Your Phone, which has brought in an income of $3.3m in the last 18 months, will become no more, with existing users having to register with Cydia to make use of the new service.

Rock Your Phone claimed 2 million users and half-a-million app sales, so the Jailbroken iPhone movement is definitely gathering steam.
