Pirated iOS app store Installous shutting down

Installous

This is great news for those of you who are making money from the App Store, Installous, a major portal for pirated paid apps from Apple’s App Store, won’t be around anymore. Earlier development team Hackulous announced the closure of Installous on their official Web site.

In the past Installous offered complete access to thousands of paid iOS apps for free for anyone with a jailbroken iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. In other words anyone could download an app without having to pay for it.

After downloading an app, users could then install it on their iDevice as if they had purchased it from Apple’s App Store. What made matters worse was the fact that expensive App Store apps would enter the pirated app store only hours after having been released on the Apple App Store.

Unfortunately however it seems as if there are many other ways to download pirated apps, what do you think will there ever be a time without pirated apps?
