Panda Helper is one of the more popular third-party app installers, and there are a few good reasons why. First, it is pretty comprehensive, offering thousands of tweaked, modified, and free apps and games, along with screen recorders, movie apps, game emulators, and more. Second, it’s free to download and use, and there’s no need to jailbreak. And third, as well as the free option, there is also the choice of upgrading to a premium version.
Originally, Panda Helper was released for iOS users, as an alternative to Cydia. But now, the developers have provided support for Android users, by releasing the APK file for Panda Helper.
