Discover the apps you can't find on the App Store.
AltStore is an app store designed for sideloading. Every app in AltStore gets a beautifully generated store page with detailed information to make sideloading fun and easy. Browse apps from trusted developers, or add additional "sources" to further increase your options.
Plus, AltStore is made with security in mind. You can view a full list of an app's permissions from its store page, and AltStore will even automatically alert you if they change* so you can sideload with confidence.
Anyone can distribute their apps with AltStore. All you need is to make a “source”, which you can do by hosting a text file with basic information about your apps. Users can then enter your source URL in AltStore and your apps will automatically appear*
Follow our complete guide to create your own source and start distributing your apps in minutes!
AltStore is a free and open-source project developed by a dedicated team of two. We are supported entirely by donations from our community and you can follow along with our progress on GitHub.
We’re currently working on AltStore 2.0 for release later this year, but you can try out the beta now by joining our Patreon.
