While jailbreaking is all well and good, giving you access to tons of tweaks, mods and apps to modify your iPhone or iPad with, not everyone wants to do it. The good news is, there’s an app that gives non-jailbreakers a kind of tweaks store of their own, although it won’t give you quite so much choice as Cydia does. The app is called Extensify and you will need it if you want to download a tweak for the popular SnapChat app.

Download Phantom for SnapChat :
There are two methods for downloading Phantom for Snapchat app. Both the methods are explained below with download links and step by step tutorials.
Method 1 : Extensify App [ Easy Method ]
To get Phantom you need to do two things. First, you need to download SnapChat [ Appstore Link ] from iTunes. Second, you need to Download Extensify. Extensify is actually a new app and it can only work because Apple has finally allowed users to sideload apps. Inside Extensify, the apps are called Exos and there are a few paid and free apps. How it works is, once you choose your Exo from Extensify, you must carry out a build of the app, including the tweak and then install it. The new, modified version of the app will then be downloaded with all the modifications.
To do this :
- Search Extensify for the Phantom Exo
- Tap on Get to add Phantom to a Build session
- Once the build has been completed, you will be asked to install the app.
Note that the icon on your home screen will be called Phantom+ . Any exo that is downloaded via Extensify is denoted by a “+” at the end of the icon name.
Extensify isn’t able to make system level modifications to apps so, if that’s what you are looking for, you will need to jailbreak your device .
Method 2 : Using Cydia Impactor [ Advanced Method ]
Cydia Impactor is another way to download Phantom for Snapchat using sideloaded apps. First download the Phantom .ipa file linked below and then install using unsigned ipa following the tutorial below.
