Apple begins cracking down on pirated apps.

 

It has long been known that Apple has been trying to fight pirated Apps, now they have reached out to AppTrackr, the most popular marketplace for downloading cracked iOS applications. AppTrackr uses their installer tool called Installous to install cracked applications, and makes available applications like Apple’s Numbers, NOAA Radar US, Nike+ GPS, and more to those who jailbreak.

Earlier in the week, the company announced in a blog post that Apple has begun sending notices regarding cracked apps demanding that the company remove these.

Instead of removing these however, AppTracrk has simply moved their servers to countries where there are no copyright laws, furthermore the company has added CAPATCHA code to all outbound links.

For developers it is a good sign that Apple has begun taking steps to prevent piracy of Apps, which really has been a big issue for several developers.

What about you have you had any of your apps pirated, and what are your thoughts on the piracy of apps?
