Paid apps, for nothing. How does that sound ? vShare is a kind of app store that contains hundreds of apps and games for free, many of them paid versions. The best part is, you don’t need to jailbreak your iOS device if you don’t want to and it doesn’t matter what version of the iOS firmware you are running – it will work on all of them.

Not everyone wants to Taig Jailbreak their iOS devices because of the risks they perceive to be attached to it. Jailbreaking is actually perfectly safe provided you are careful about what you download and where you download it from. Even if you opt not to do it, you might still be wanting a piece of the action in terms of not having to pay for your apps.
How to Download and Install vShare – No Jailbreak :
No doubt some of you already know of AppCake, Install0us and AppSync but these all require you to jailbreak your device first. With vShare that isn’t necessary and the sheer amount of downloads the app gets is a testament to how popular it is.
Right now, although vShare [ext link] does contain paid apps for free and we really don’t condone piracy in any way there is a bit of a loophole here that makes it legal to download vShare – get your hands on it now, while you can:
- On your iOS device open Safari browser
- Type vsharedownload.com into the address bar and go to it
- Look at the bottom of the screen when the page opens and you will see a large UP arrow. Tap on this
- On the menu that appears, tap on Add to Home Screen
- You will now be asked to rename the app to vShare . Tap on Add – top right of your screen
- Close down Safari and you should see the vShare icon on your home screen
- Tap to open it and enjoy the apps
