    From what I can gather Installer is the old way to install apps on a jailbroken phone. Cydia has replaced it and Installer doesn't offer much over Cydia anyway. I have also read that the new version of Installer is not a good app. Cydia has a function which allows you to manage which apps are installed and to uninstall them. I only installed Cydia on my phone, which I love btw.

    No you do not need it. Cydia has everything you will need.
