App creators joining the fight against JB?

As much as everyone else here, I'm eagerly looking forward to the availability of a JB for my iphone5. Unfortunately, as much as I miss SBSettings and BiteSMS, when I had my JB device there were an increasing number of apps that wouldn't work on a JB device, detecting this and refusing to run. Sky go, my banking app to name just a couple. I hope this trend doesn't continue

I understand that developers aren't interested in jailbroken iPhones with illegally downloaded apps on them. Maybe now that Installous has been shut down things will change, I don't know. Personally, all I use a jailbreak for are tweaks that enhance my personal user experience, Zephyr, SwipeAway and NCSettings for instance. I don't mind paying a few euros for apps if they really are useful and I actually need them.

I wasn't referring to illegal apps of which I've never had any. I was referring to the growing number of purchased or free apps that won't run on a JB device

My opinion

The apps developers who are against jailbreak because they say the jailbreak is linked to the piracy, but they're just narrow-minded, dummies and fascists.

If they are against jailbreak, I'll remove their apps that I bought and I will take off their rating stars and will replace the positive comment for the negative. Like they did at Reddit against Go Daddy in the time of SOPA.

These fascist and functional illiterates don't know the difference between jailbreak and piracy, this is one thing and that is other thing. They will want us to be imprisoned, limited and narrow-minded and to support the limited iOS.

I don't consider jailbreak as piracy's alternative, but tweak and theme's alternative, so I don't want to be locked and imprisoned. I like freedom.

Apple and the anti-jailbreak protesters won't have any right of controlling me and my iDevices, because when once I bought or paid an iDevice with my money, it became belonging to me and not to them, my iDevice is mine and I do what I want with my iDevice.

You would be going to argue it's against Apple and DMCA policies, but if they control, sue and force me, they are violating the customer and civil, human and individual rights laws too.

There are very good reasons for a banking app to want to restrict access to accounts from jailbroken devices.

This I can understand.

However, just the other day I purchased an app for $2, and its only functionality was the ability to upload/download files properly, yet as soon as I launched it there was a push notification telling me it would not work on a jailbroken device and it self-terminated. It was after I had already paid with no prior warning. That's not really necessary is it?

Surely a banking app could just implement the same securities that they implement on an Android OS, they have equal, if not more freedom than us jailbroken iOS users have.

I'm not an English-speaking native.

What are my grammar and orthography errors?

Ah, I looked at these words in my dictionary, these words are adjective and the adjective can't be plural. Is it this?

Now I understood

Now I understood, I asked for my British native friend to analyse my errors. He said to use "they are against jailbreaking" instead of "they are against the jailbreaking". And he said to use "linked to piracy" instead of "linked to the piracy".

Is it this?

Haha, you are learning, it really wasn't a big deal, we could understand what you were trying to say.

Thanks! I'd figured it was just a standard API call that could be spoofed. There's really no reason that an app that i buy should care if it's running on a Jailbroken phone.

I figure that the developers want to avoid tech support calls blaming their apps if they don't work on a jailbroken phone, but it should be more of a warning screen saying "Don't bother us if this app doesn't work on your jailbroken device"
