There is some distribution of apps outside the App Store using provisioning profiles and enterprise certificates, which allows those apps to be installed on non-jailbroken iOS devices. This violates Apple's developer agreements.

Some of them use a provisioning profile that requires the user to set the device's time back to 2012 before installing the app.


  • nds4ios - an emulator app.
  • Some piracy sites and tools distribute cracked App Store apps that have been re-signed using developer certificates.
  • iOSEmulatorSpot, JBWithoutJB, and NoJailbreakApps redistribute various apps developed by other people, mostly without permission.
