Installous Shut Down
So Hackulous, the group behind the piracy Cydia apps/tweaks Installous and AppSync. It's a small victory, but someone will eventually make an alternative, which sucks. I have a confession to make. When I got my iPod Touch 4G and jailbroke it on 4.2.1, I used Installous for a couple months. Then, for some reason, I stopped. I now buy all my apps or wait until they are free or at a discount, depending on the price and app. I also pirated Cydia tweaks. But I became unhappy with that as the versions had bugs, were super old, or didn't work. So I got myself one of those cards at 7-11 that allow you to buy things online and bought all my tweaks. Now I have a different method to do that, but won't disclose it. Hackulous said this:
"We are very sad to announce that Hackulous is shutting down. After many years, our community has become stagnant and our forums are a bit of a ghost town. It has become difficult to keep them online and well-moderated, despite the devotion of our staff. We're incredibly thankful for the support we've had over the years and hope that new, greater communities blossom out of our absence."
I won't miss it and now it encourages me more than ever to make an iOS app, which you'll see in 2013.
