As Hackulous Shuts Down Is Apple Winning The Pirating War?
Hackulous was responsible for the Installous App which was by far and away the best solution to find and install apps from various repositories. The news also comes at a time where iOS 6 still proves to be a tough nut to crack jailbreak wise.
Perhaps the master stroke here by apple was releasing their own top tier software at prices previously unheard of. Slashing the price of apps such as Final Cut Pro and iLife / Pages suites removed the tried and trusted excuse of "I'd buy it if I could afford it".
So many wonderful apps come in at less than a price of coffee is there really a need to spend time packing and hacking IPA files?
To quote Hackulous.
Goodnight, sweet prince.
We are very sad to announce that Hackulous is shutting down. After many years, our community has become stagnant and our forums are a bit of a ghost town. It has become difficult to keep them online and well-moderated, despite the devotion of our staff. We’re incredibly thankful for the support we’ve had over the years and hope that new, greater communities blossom out of our absence.
With lots of love, Hackulous Team
Looking for an alternative to Installous. It seems that AppCake and App vv could possibly be some alternatives BUT PLEASE if you like an App, pay for it. Support the developers else we'll all end up like Android :D
