If we start comparing the two stores, Cydia Store and App Store, we will see a huge discrepancy, in terms of apps, tweaks, themes and ringtones. This discrepancy exists because in App Store does not have the last three mentioned. If you want to install these kinds of packages you will need to unlock your device, so in order to remove your limitations from your iPhone or iPad use a jailbreak tool. Remember to tick the installation of Cydia when jailbreaking. If you are having problems finding a jailbreak tool I suggest greenpois0n and absinthe.
