Both Installous & AppSync Got Shut Down by Hackulous

Today I call the following news the worst news you are going to hear in Jailbreak history… A lot of jailbreak users have been enjoying using the popular piracy app Installous which allows you to download all the apps in the App Store for free with no charges… And I am one of those guys who loved using it and you don’t know how I am really shocked by seeing such report…

Today Hackulous has just announced sitting down both Installous & AppSync piracy apps forever..

The short message left by the Hackulous team on the website reads as follow:

Goodnight, sweet prince.

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.

With lots of love,
Hackulous Team

As far as I know, Installous was the easiest and fastest way to install cracked apps onto your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. At this time, it appears that the Hackulous repo is down, meaning that you can’t install Installous or AppSync anymore, those two apps being necessary to install cracked apps from third party pirate sites.

 But I loved using Installous as it made my life much easier than before, and I know that a lot of people are now very sad to hear such thing.. But let us face the truth, Installous was a big lose for developers who made apps and spent years creating it and after all of these hard work, you simply come and take the app without even paying a cent ?
I really felled shame when I do such thing… And if you looked at the App Store you will find that almost all the apps between range $0.99—> $4.99…

If you were an Installous user, it looks like you’re going to have to spend $0.99 on that app after all. If you are a developer, I’m sure you’ll be happy to hear the news. If you are an iOS user, consider this day a victory for iOS and a chance to have an amazing developer community keep coming up with awesome apps.
