Icy was an APT package manager originally developed by RiPDev for iPhone OS 2.0 - 3.1.3. It was intended as a faster, more lightweight alternative to Cydia.

It was unsuccessful due to a non-standard implementation of APT, requiring extra work for repository owners to fully support it.[further explanation needed] These issues were criticised by saurik after its release.[citation needed]

On 24 October 2009 (2009-10-24), RiPDev was closed, and development of Icy ceased. Source code was released on the same day.

The project was continued by two teams: WeAmDev, and Infini-Dev.

WeAmDev released version 2.0.1 with support for iOS 4 (including multitasking support), and later, 2.1.[when?] The final version released by WeAmDev is 2.3 beta, supporting iOS 7.

In November 2010 (2010-11), the package manager project Euphoria was forked from the original RiPDev Icy source code by sosumeh. In February 2011 (2011-02), the project was folded into the WeAmDev team.

The project was also continued by Infini-Dev.[when?] It was ultimately discontinued in early 2014, replacing it with Installer X for iOS 5 and 6, and Installer 5 for modern versions.[1]
