The Cydia store is pretty much the go-to place for iOS apps that aren’t available from the official App Store. In fact, most methods for jailbreaking an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad also include steps to install the Cydia store so that you can start downloading officially unsupported apps right away. But soon the Cydia store may not be the only game in town.

The folks at the Infini Dev Team are working on a new app store for jailbroken devices called Lima. It’s entirely web based. That means you won’t have to install the store on your phone to use it. You can just open up a web browser, enter the URL, and then browser for apps, themes, and other tools by category.

Lima appears to be well organized and rather zippy. You can install apps directly from your web browser simply by clicking a link. When installation is complete you can tap a button to reload the Springboard and your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad should be good to go with the new app.

Right now Lima is still a work in progress, but you can check out a demo video below.
