I am pleased to show my latest creation Vynal! It started as a portal to host html5 experiments may hopefully expand into a useable platform for users and developers to locate and host non-jailbreak tweaks and It has been in development since June 2013 and supports all iDevices, regardless of the firmware! Vynal is like an alternative to Cydia, and a less buggy HTML5 App Market. The selling point is that it does not involve jailbreaking. Vynal is capable of installing (somewhat limited) themes, Apps and more(will not disclose at this moment as it is not ready for public release). There will be a code that apps/themes will have to abide by (no adware) and all apps/themes will have to be tested by a trusted third party or me. The specifications for app install will be available on this site soon. Extensions will also be present, although limited by OS/Webkit, I will create and host (hopefully)open source frameworks and SDK’s for this new distribution outlet, durring the first few months of public trial, all media on the store will be free, although in the coming months, I may implement a store in which apps/tweaks/themes can be purchased for currency. I re-begin work on multiple emulators for consoles that will run on iOS with BASE64 upload on any non-jail broken devices(over iOS 4.3.x + on emulators because of the Nitro JS engine). I am also willing to host almost any app, as long as it is to vinyl’s guidelines and is less than 50 Megabytes per app, as server space is limited, but this may change in the future. I have already began porting emulators: Gameboy, NES , MSX,ZX Spectrum 48k emulators and many more comming soon!
To The Developers:
Please visit http://gb4iphone.x10.mx/dev/devcenter.html to locate the latest submission guidelines. Also for the sake of saving space, certain libraries will be hosted on a permanent location on the server to prevent duplicates, please keep this in mind when developing apps, and server-side storage is not available for apps specific users, use Offline-Cache Manifest instead, If I do switch servers this may change but as of the time of posting, this is the official implemented guidelines. The included libraries are iWebkit 5.04, jquery-min-1.4.2,nds-web-lib.js ,node.js, and a few more. I hope this branches out into something larger, making un-official tweaks and apps available to iOS users.
