    In the past people talk about how much they love dtunes but a mention of installous and your treading on piracy? That's kinda lame seeing as dtunes is for the exact same purpose. What gives

    Can it?:confused: Like mxtube and yourtube?
    dTunes includes a downloader and media player, in which you can download MP3's (p2p methods i think) and play them for free.

    Unlike Installous, dTunes has legitimate uses. I use dTunes to play media that I (legally) downloaded to my phone in Safari, never to download illegal songs. Believe it or not, there are quite a few free or public domain recordings on the Web.

    dTunes doesn't download Youtube videos...

    It's an MP3 player app but a major feature is that it lets you download pirated music.

    My interpretation of the forum rules would be that you can discuss the App in regards to legitimate uses. As thelatinist said, there are legitimate uses. So discussing where to find dTunes and how to set up playlists or import your music would be fine.

    Discussing how to download pirated songs or find pirated music using dTunes would not be ok.

    There is no legitimate reason to use any App pirating software that I know of. Maybe if a free app wasn't offered in your region and it was the only way... then maybe a discussion would be allowed, but even still I doubt it as it would no doubt help others pirate software.

    But... I'm not a Mod so it doesn't really matter what I think. Only those who hold the Ban-Hammer.

    installous could be used to modify ipas that you already own... for example turning the sonic1 app into sonic 2.

    One excuse for Installous is a trial kind of basis. Download a paid app and try it. If you like it delete it and support your friendly developers rather than being a prick about it.

    On a side note...Ha! No more newbie status!

    Turning it into? Huh? Just rename it?

    Downloading a Paid app without paying for any reason is still pirating. Granted, it's not with ill intention.

    Congrats on becoming a member!
