Pirating apps via Installous is illegal. Please support the developer and buy the app. This extra icon sometimes appears when using a cracked version of LockInfo or IntellscreenX.

Maybe he's using it to try the app before deciding if it's worth a purchase?

Morality police appear!!

OP I don't know what your badge is all about but let's be honest, why have that app if you don't use it? I don't care what you do but be honest, ALL your apps are purchased?

Would you go to a shop and walk out with a bag of a new flavour of potato chips without paying because you want to see what they taste like before buying it? When you pirate apps for the reason you posted that's essentially what you are doing. It doesn't matter whether the good/service is worth 50cents of 50thousand dollars, it's all stealing in my opinion.

No one can help anyone with pirated software on these forums. Try somewhere else OP.

People test cars first..
I've even seen people eat their bag of chips in line before paying. So what's your point? :rolleyes:

Because dealerships offer that option. Testing out iOS apps before purchasing is not offered by Apple. Some apps choose to have free versions with limited functionality to allow users to test. Others don't.

No I'd ask for a taste of someone else's crisps or try them at a taster stall that they have in shops.

Where's the harm if he try's and enjoys then buys?

As opposed to buy , doesn't enjoy. Stears clear of that developer in future due to wasting money.

Well they should have a refund policy set in place. But then again if people want to steal apps and tweaks, so be it. Ain't hurting your pockets, dont be concerned about the next man.

I've never seen a car lot where you can go in, hop in a car without speaking to the sales people and driving off without any certainty you'll return or buy the car. People eat chips in line because they know they will purchase them, they don't try out the bag and then put it back, that's what's called stealing.

Who's to say he's just going to "return" the app? or say nothing about it?

Let HIM tell you guys why he did it.

I personally wouldn't care what y'all said. If he installed it, so what. Stop chin checking the guy.
