I'm just wondering how people crack iPhone apps? I don't want to do this, but Im just wondering how?
i bet $1000 that this thread will be wastelanded in the next 5 minutes
we don't talk of piracy on these forums...arrgh!!!
Simple, put them on a CD and then hit the CD with a hammer.
Google is your friend.
Damn OP, just joined this May, already managed to get a thread you started locked with a silly question and here you are starting another silly thread. When you said in your other thread that you will be a freshman, you wasn't kidding.
How dare you even ask this question around here...
Although I'm curious as well...
Better to ask on one of the other less reputable forums that I'm afraid to even mention by name
They do exist.
I'm just a bit livid on the subject because my iPhone app was "cracked" and now there is a cracked version of my app floating around...
But if this is a soar question to ask, then I'll say this is CLOSED.
Supposedly strips the drm and makes a drm free copy of the app. I have no idea how it does it on a technical level and also when the drm is applied to submitted apps (at Apple's approval process?).
I'm waiting for my check
Thanks milk242... Thats all I wanted to know!
I recant my sarcasm, being a developer and having your work cracked has got to suck. I guess on one level you should be happy that it was an "worthy" enough app to be cracked. Here is to hoping the people who get the cracked version and like it, go ahead and buy it.
At leas that's what my sister says she does with her cracked apps, buying the ones that she decides to keep.
cracked apps tend to be more buggy. I would think most people dl a cracked app then get tried of the bugs. If they like the app they buy it, if not they remove it.
that isn't really the case...unless whoever cracked it is a n00b
True. They tend to work just as if they were purchased.
I don't think there is even a way to stop people from cracking an app either. I remember reading on some forum a few months back that people were using a cracked app that would give a warning to go to iTunes and buy the app when it's data base was attempted to update within the app. They were able to strip out that warning and people were again able to update the database in the app and keep on using it.
It's pure rubbish...
why wouldn't you use cracked apps? I always bought my apps but got stung by a few, where the developer didn't mention that they where incompatible with my device or for that matter wasn't bothered to upgrade them, so they would. I'd rather try them out first and then buy them.
And I do not condone piracy btw. But I hate parting with my cash for something I can't use.
I've tried a lot of certain kinds of apps out before finding the one that suited my needs best, although I could've avoided all that by reading reviews on sites carefully, I kind of went app crazy. I bought every single app, spent a bit, but I don't see why it's necessary to crack 'em to try them out, Google's your friend.
Personally, I like supporting developers that make decent apps, and all but one of the apps I bought were very decent apps (evil app deleted, duplicated, and rearranged contact info both in Gmail and on my iPhone, massive mess). Money means developers are more likely to put in time in upgrading their apps.
EDIT: The thread title is funny, it's kind of like asking how people kill their wives without getting caught.
Very well said...
