Since AppCake now can download IPA files, as well as any Torrent files, you may wanna Export the files you downloaded from AppCake


(How To Importing files is in the bottom part of this tutorial, but it's similar as how you export files)


There are three ways to transfer files from AppCake

1. In-App Sharing

Tap any downloaded apps, you will see a 'Share' button, tap that. (Due to Pangu JB, the share function will crash on iOS 8.1)







2. use In-App WiFi File Transfer, to export files to your computer

If your iPhone and computer are in same WiFi network, you can go to: AppCake -> Settings -> WiFi File Transfer



Then visit the URL on your iPhone from your computer web browser, you should see the AppCake content folders:

you can upload/download files here





3. use iFunBox to transfer to computer

- Download iFunBox on your PC from: http://www.i-funbox.com/

- Install 'Apple File Conduit 2' from Cydia on your iPhone


All the AppCake downloaded files are located at: /var/mobile/Media/AppCake/

You can browse your iPhone file system like this:




Importing files to AppCake

If you got an IPA file from somewhere else, you may wanna use AppCake to install it, you can import files to /var/mobile/Media/AppCake/Imported/

Then you should be able to see it from AppCake app -> Imported tab


Three ways to import files, similar to the three ways describe above.
