Twitch, a live video streaming service, is hugely popular, especially among the gaming community. Whether you are a gamer or a gaming audience, you have come across Twitch at some point.
Twitch++ is a tweaked version of the official iOS app. It is more convenient to use and brings some additional features with it.
Twitch++ is not available in the App Store. Whereas jailbreaking is a way to install the app on your iOS device, it makes your device vulnerable to threats and losing official Apple support. Here we’ll demonstrate how to install Twitch++ on iPhone or iPad without jailbreaking it.
Install Twitch++ without jailbreak
BuildStore is a third-party app store for iOS and Twitch++ is one of the apps in their repository. You can install Twitch++ from here without jailbreaking your iOS device. To use BuildStore services you have to avail a paid subscription starting at $14.99/year per device.
Note: Twitch++ is a tweaked app and has the same Bundle ID as the official app. The original and tweaked versions cannot be installed simultaneously in a device. Hence, you must uninstall the original app in order to install the Twitch++ app.
Mentioned below is the stepwise guide to install Twitch++ on your iOS device:
- Uninstall the official version of the Twitch app, If you already have it installed.
- Signup for a new BuildStore account and register your iOS device.
- On your registered iOS device, open Safari and navigate to the Twitch++ app page.
- Tap on the install button.
Twitch++ will be successfully installed on your registered iOS device.
Features of Twitch++
Once Twitch++ is installed on your iPhone or iPad, you will be able to avail the following additional features.
- Block all video ads.
- View the chat window while in landscape mode.
- Play/Pause live streams.
Note: Installation of an updated version of Twitch from the App Store may overwrite the tweaked version and may lead to loss of all the tweaked features provided in Twitch++, in which case, the Twitch++ app have to be re-installed.
Is Twitch++ safe to install
As per BuildStore’s content policy, any application available on their third-party app store “MUST NOT harm the device or the device owner“.
According to BuildStore, the apps available on BuildStore are reviewed internally for malicious code and stability. We have spoken to a company representative on the matter, and this is what he had to say: “We guarantee that using the apps from the BuildStore is safe for the gadget and users’ private data.”
However, BuildStore does not claim any responsibility for any action taken against the user by original app developers (for example, disabling of accounts), for the use of tweaked apps.
