Cydia To Get Rating System

It was confirmed earlier today that the next version of Cydia will have an app rating system similar to that of the App Store. The news came in the form of a screenshot that was posted showing the Cydia page for the package Winterboard 0.9.2600-1. Next to the package number was a star, which was taken to be a form of ratings system.

It was confirmed as true later in the day by Cydia creator and Dev Team member Saurik. A similar concept has been implemented in RiPDev’s “Installer 4″. The ability to rate apps make both options that much more of a viable alternative to the App Store, although both still rely on the ability to jailbreak the device.
