If you are looking for something different, something that the official app store doesn’t offer, you need to look at TopStore. Packed with unofficial apps, games, and more, it supports the iPhone and the iPad without needing a jailbreak, and it’s all free.
How to Download TopStore App:
TopStore is easy to install; all you need is your iPhone or iPad and the internet. Here’s how:
- Launch the Safari browser and open the TopStore download page
- Tap to download the configuration profile onto your device
- Tap Install on the popup message to confirm the installation
- Wait – you will see the icon on your home screen when TopStore is installed
- You can’t use the app just yet – first, open your Settings app
- Tap on General > Profiles
- Find the TopStore app profile and tap it
- Tap Trust and close Settings
- Now you can use TopStore
How to Use TopStore:
TopStore is just as easy and intuitive to use as the official app store:
- Open the app store from your home screen
- Tap an app category
- Browse the apps and games and tap on what you want to download – you can also use the search bar to find a specific app
- Tap Install and wait for the app icon to load on your screen
- If you get the untrusted developer error, follow the steps from 5 onwards in the installation tutorial
TopStore App Features:
TopStore offers several cool features – it’s free, you don’t need to jailbreak, and you get tons of apps, games, and more to choose from. All that content has been put into categories so you can easily find what you want:
- iOS Apps – plenty of official app store content
- Exclusive Apps – lots of unofficial content not found in the official app store – emulators, streaming apps, screen recorders, and more
- Top iOS Games – popular iOS games with extra functions and features
- Modified Apps – stock apps with new features and new functions
Many of these apps are not allowed into the official app store because they do not meet Apple’s strict policies, not because they are illegal apps.
Common TopStore Errors and Solutions
While TopStore is one of the most reliable and stable app stores, some common errors are being reported, all of which are easy to fix:
One of the more common errors, it is also one of the easiest to fix:
- Open iOS Settings > Safari
- Tap on Clear Website Data
- TopStore’s screen should now be normal again
If it isn’t, delete the app store and reinstall it.
TopStore may be legal, but it is unofficial and is built on expired enterprise certificates. Because of this, Apple revokes the certificates fairly quickly after you install the app. TopStore crashes, and you have to start from the beginning again. First, do NOT delete TopStore at this stage – wait for 24 to 48 hours as the developers should have replaced the certificate by then. While you wait, install a good VPN or an anti-revoke app so it can’t happen again.
Fixing SSL Errors:
These are also common but resolving them is simple:
- Shut Safari and make sure every tab is closed too
- Make sure all the apps on your device are fully closed too
- Leave your iPhone or iPad for a couple of minutes and then try downloading TopStore again – you should find it works.
If it doesn’t, try the next method:
- Shut Safari, ensuring all tabs are closed too
- Shut all apps and then turn off your device
- Could you wait a few minutes and power it on again?
- Download TopStore, and it should work properly.
Fixing the Untrusted Developer Error:
This error appears with all unofficial apps because the developer is not known to Apple. You need to trust the developer before you can use the app – this is easy to do:
- Go to Settings > General and tap on Profiles
- Find the TopStore profile and tap it
- Tap Trust and close Settings
- You should now be able to use TopStore without error
When you get errors you can’t fix, or you can’t get along with TopStore, deleting it is very simple; all you need to do is delete the profile:
- Go to Settings > General > Profiles
- Tap the TopStore Profile
- Tap on Delete Profile
- Close Settings – TopStore is removed from your device
Frequently Asked Questions:
Some TopStore questions get asked more than once, and these are the two we get most often:
Will My Warranty Be Affected?
No, TopStore is legal to use, not requiring any special permission to be installed. You don’t need to jailbreak either, so you are not hacking the iOS firmware’s root. If you need to, you can delete TopStore if you have to take your device for repair and then install it again later.
How Safe is TopStore?
100% safe. With no jailbreak needed, you are not circumventing any of Apple’s security, and the developers also included strong SSL encryption to keep you secure. They also issue regular updates, which you must install, fix any issues, and bring you new content.
Try TopStore today; it’s free, and it is one of the best iOS app store alternatives.
