Lima: Cydia's new competitor?

Lima is going to be or currently is a web version of Cydia but sleek and faster, not requiring you to download/install a client like Cydia. Lima is being developed by the Infini Dev Team. Since Lima will be a web version of Cydia of course it will be lacking in some of the features that Cydia supplies, which features those are I can't tell you because Lima hasn't been finished yet so it's best not to skip ahead to conclusions but it is safe to assume that there will be lack of a few. Note from the devs blog:

Lima is going to be a great installer, and just for notice, we aren’t leaving Icy behind. By the way, we got it working on the iPad and firmware up to 4.3.2 and we are soon releasing v1.4.8, with several bugfixes that came all the way from RipDev’s code and on further releases we are adding Cydia Store purchases. On Lima too!

  1. I'm in the market for an iPad, but I'm not up-to-date on the matters of software components and 3rd party clients. It seems like you know your stuff when it comes to new technology. Cheers! +follow

  3. I've been meaning to get an iPad too, but like Kate said I too am uninformed on software and 3rd party aspects of it. Hopefully some of your subsequent posts will help the both of us learn a little something ^_^

  4. I feel like Cydia is too big right now to fail. I don't have an ipod, my brother does, but I feel if you want freedom, don't buy an iPod and jailbreak it, just buy Android. That's just my 2 cents.
