HackStore integrates with OS X
In early April, Russian programmer Andrei Fedotov launched the unofficial app store HackStore. Since then, the online kiosk has received several updates, which ultimately allowed it to fit perfectly into the software environment of Apple computers.
Mac users know that just like the iOS mobile operating system, the OS X desktop platform has a number of severe software restrictions. Developers who want to make custom edits to the system, for example, to change the appearance, cannot publish to the Mac App Store.
Fedotov supports the development of an alternative store that makes it easy to install and update system tweaks and programs for OS X. Under the HackStore logo, its main slogan is "No pirated applications."
According to the developer, HackStore is a single center for all the software, which for one reason or another did not go to the Mac App Store. Here you can find Steam, Adium, Glims, Plex, TinyUmbrella, Counter-Strike 1.6, Lion Tweaks, iTweax and hundreds of other interesting utilities. They were not allowed into the official store due to the "draconian rules of Apple."
The latest update provided HackStore with tight integration with OS X. From now on, all applications are installed directly into the standard LaunchPad launchpad. From here, they can be easily removed. Just like in the Mac App Store, an unofficial store has an auto-update feature. Now the user can easily keep all downloaded software up to date. Fans of tweaks on the iPhone and iPad will find it useful the new Tweaks section, which presents about 40 various developments.
The HackStore store allows you to view screenshots, leave comments, ratings and, of course, download the programs you like. At the moment, the store’s capabilities have been evaluated by more than 200,000 “makodov”. Anyone can download the application from the link below.
