App Admin.

Ever wish you could downgrade an App Store app when the newest version omits features older versions had or introduces features you don't like?

I've been using it for several day and it seems to do what it claims.

Directly from Cydia:

App Admin - A tweak for the app store that allows you to downgrade your apps to any previous versions still hosted by apple.

In order to downgrade apps you'll need a specific app ID that Apple assigns the App Version known as "SoftwareVersionExternalIdentifier". The tweak is built to crowdsource these identifiers, so as more people use this tweak more of the identifiers will be available within the tweak so some will be available to use. For those that are not known yet you will have to ask on>reddit.com/r/jailbreak for the corresponding SoftwareVersionExternalIdentifier for the version of the app you're trying to downgrade to.

In order to start a downgrade simply select the downgrade option after pressing "open/get/download" on an app. Please watch the video below for usage instructions.

In the near future this tweak will allow you to block/hide updates, keep an eye out for this.
