The majority of the third party app store’s accessible on the iPhone require a jailbreak, the most popular obviously being Cydia, which is frequently installed during the jailbreaking process.

The apps available in the OpenAppMkt app store appear to be written completely in HTML format, which means you can install the web-based apps by utilizing your browsers “add to home” function. Below is a video detailing exactly how the OpenAppMkt works.
