How to Use Installous 4 LocalSharing Feature to Share IPA Files

I have been asked by a lot of people as to what the LocalSharing feature in Installous 4 does. This tutorial talks about Installous 4’s LocalSharing engine which will allow you to share the downloaded IPA files on your iPhone with any other iOS device over wifi. No need to redownload on your second device or if sharing an app with a friend.

Obviously, both the devices need to have Installous 4 installed. In case you haven’t installed Installous yet or you are running an older version of Installous 4, first get Installous 4 on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

Now talking about LocalSharing, this new feature will help you save some time and bandwidth when installing the same cracked application on another device. You need a wifi network for this feature to work. It uses Bonjour to find and identify devices on the same network.

By default LocalSharing is disabled in Installous 4. To enable go to Installous Settings and Turn it On.
