    What you can do, is pay for apps.
    Or look for apps that are freeware/GPL.

    Jailbreak is about loosening the control of an undead vampire (Steve Jobs)
    so that you can be in charge of your own destiny.

    But commercial software doesn't work without feeding the mouths of hungry developers.
    If you did find a way to use commercial software "for free" that would mean developers stop being paid
    and eventually they would starve to death and not be able to write commercial software anymore.

    Your JB should have come with Cydia - it's a non-apple-based software repository,
    much of which is freeware, some of which is commercial.
    It can be easier to find free stuff on Cydia than on the apple AppStore, so that may be a good place to try.

    However, if what you want is "using commercial software without a license" the best thing you can do is nothing.

    There are thousands of free apps in the AppStore and Cydia already.
    Are you looking for those?

    Or are you looking for a way to get the commercial Apps from AppStore/Cydia for free?
