Today we met some hard evidence to those who doubted that the application hacking was a big problem for the world of Jailbreak. Usually these concepts have been looking for those that have not been adequately informed, but in fact a world distant.
The Jailbreak is the process by which we can install patches to IOS, the operating system of our iPad. These modifications and applications are often not allowed by Apple, and many of them are extra to course creators can recoup the investment. It is legal as some statements in the U.S. have said.
The application hacking is a blight on the community of developers who kept alive the Jailbreak, it goes a step further. They managed to install applications that were paid on the App Store, but for free. This violates the copyright, and is something illegal which poses a serious threat to the healthy ecosystem of apps for Apple devices.
In fact, not even the tweaks in Cydia, perfectly legal, get rid of piracy. The developers Bigarella, author of amendments as CleverPin Springtomize 2 and has revealed that his latest tweak has a piracy rate of 92%.
In effect, then we detail the statistics compiled after the developer has more than 200,000 installations of your tweak. Some numbers that none expected.
The sad thing is that it is not an isolated case. It is probably a common practice with other tweaks that live in Cydia . And that we have not entered the pirate apps are installed from Installous, circumventing the App Store price.
The culture of hacking is very powerful because it comes from industries where prices are sometimes abusive, and people bring seared if you can get free products, the better. However, times have changed and the App Store or Cydia can find truly wonderful for less than 1 €, and rarely more than 5 €.
It's a fairly small amount, and while some buy apps or tweaks that got hacked a few days after test, we fear are a few cases.
