Cydia Impactor

Cydia Impactor is a graphical user interface programme that is used to install third party applications to iOS devices. Users can install APK files to Android devices and IPA files to iOS devices easily through this tool. The process of installing these files is known as sideloading. This tool comprises some major features such as connection bridging, rooting Android devices, built-in USB drivers, unlocking bootloader and package installation. Cydia Impactor is free of charge and must be downloaded directly using APK files as it is not available either in Play store or App store. This is one of the easiest ways to sideload third party apps.
