A new alternative to Cydia is coming. Lima is a software application which allows you to browse (using Safari) and install applications, themes, tweaks etc. on your jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The developer of Lima is still working on it. He has also released a demo video of it which you can find below.
The interesting feature about Lima is that it will use your browser to provide all its functionality. It will use Safari to browse applications and install them on your iDevice. It is said to install applications in high speed.
No doubt that this is a cool concept as it provides all package management and installation of tweaks etc. inside your browser windows. It is unlike Cydia which requires you to install it onces your device is jailbroken.
No release date or estimated time of arrival has been announced by its developer. Looks like there are a lot of Cydia alternatives yet to come. But we need to know which one is actually going to beat Cydia by providing better and enhanced facilities.
Check out the video to see Lima in action:
