How to sideload apps with Sideload.me
First and foremost, you must purchase a license and set up your account with your device’s UDID.
Step 1 Sign up for an account on Sideload.me and purchase a license.
Step 2 Submit your device’s UDID. For those of you who are unfamiliar with sideloading, you can access your UDID from iTunes.
Step 3 Wait for the administrator to activate your plan. The profile page will display where you are in the queue and how soon your license will become functional.
Step 4 Once the administrator activates your license, you can log in to your dashboard and install Sideload.me’s helper application for iOS. All app downloads and sideloading will take place through this app.
Step 5 Tap the “more options” button and tap SIDELOAD APP.
Step 6 Tap Install Sideload and wait for the signing to finish.
Step 7 Tap Download to install the app on your iPhone or iPad.
Step 8 Your device will now display a confirmation message. Tap Install to confirm and wait for the app to appear on your home screen.
Once you install the Sideload app on your device, you can start downloading apps and games.
Step 9 Launch the Sideload app.
Step 10 Tap the “more options” button and tap Apps to access the app catalog.
Step 11 Select the app you want to install and tap Download. The app will now display the “Install Action” menu that will let you install an app over its existing installation or as a duplicate.
Step 12 If you want to keep the original app intact, tap Install. Alternatively, you can select Install as Duplicate if you want to install it as a separate app.
Step 13 Tap Install to confirm the installation.
Sign IPA files manually
Manual signing is essential if you are an independent app developer or simply want to sign apps that are not available anywhere. This feature is aimed at power users and is available only through their website.

You can now sideload as many apps as you want without worrying about revokes. The only downside of this app is that it doesn’t an enterprise certificate that is required to enable push notifications.
The app library, though limited at this point, will definitely get more apps in the future. Nevertheless, it is enough for anyone who just wants to install hacked apps and games.
As fas support goes, the administrator Matthew is very helpful and responsive. He is always there for his customers and replies back instantly if you run into an issue.
If you can shell out a few bucks yearly, ditch those ad-infested app installers and purchase a Sideload.me plan right now.
