Jailbreak without Jailbreaking. Not sure if Apple will allow this for long. With this service you can modify and tweak apps already downloaded in the app store (eg enable Vine to download videos to your camera roll)

Per TechCrunch, it'll be a $3/month service. And: "The way the system works is by first installing Extensify through a configuration profile on your device. After Extensify is trusted, you can browse its app store to download the tweaks. The app sends a request to the iTunes App Store, downloads a fresh copy of the host application, repackages the app with the tweaks (called “exos” in Extensify), then sends the request back to the device and sideloads the application." http://techcrunch.com/2016/03/01...

I'm very curious as to how this works. How is this thing altering the IPA files from the iTunes store (such as snapchat?). This is definitely going to be taken down by Apple. What if any of these so called 'exos' had malicious code - outside of Apples walled garden? Not going to last.

Looks like it doesn't involve Apple. They are distributing it ad hoc with something probably like Fabric. They probably create builds with a rotating development certificate or something shady like that
