As for cracking apps in general..I really dont see the point of cracking the 1$ app, even though Im coming from, lets say, not that rich country... On the other hand, I really dont see the point to price the software few thousand $ .. I mean its not the cure for cancer or eternal energy source for God sake .. Yes, with lot of apps people makes money..True..But so what? Is that a reason to sell that for 2.000$ with paid upgrades, patches and whole lot other bulls**t? I don't think so..Those overpriced goodies /apps, houses, branded "high fashion" clothes etc./ brought us where we are now - in deep s**t called recession ..---------
Yes, you're a PC. But you come with Vista, which is like a chick with herpes.

honestly irealsms beats mysms in every way, and that dev shouldn't be trusted. I hope nobody in the future buys mysms. thats really just not acceptable either way.Wanna-be coder/iphone user since '08

Look at all the companies that have tried that before in the past...
Sony was the last one that tried something silly like that, and they got into alot of trouble. Cracking and defeating crackers is a cat and mouse game, it always has been, and it always will be.
It's like running a DoS Attack on TPB or Appu or whatever site you don't like because they are hosting things that you think they shouldn't.Herp a derp a derp a doooo!

it's just matter of endurance who will keep updating their work around

Good Move!!! in my opinion.
I can't say that i blame the guy, its his app and he wants to be compensated, theres nothing wrong about that. [How much is it anyway? Is it any good? Has someone done a review?]
People who are downloading cracked apps at the .99 and 1.99 level are at bubble gum stealing level. Its like what's the point, everyone has a dollar. :-(

That's just perfect! +1 for the devs! :-)If I've helped you or even just made you laugh, hit Thanks. Every time you do, an iPhone gets jailbroken. FREE THE iPHONES!!!

If he's worried about feeding his 1 year old child, maybe he should find a stable job somewhere.
Nothing like exploiting your child. And no, I don't support stealing his stuff. I just don't like people like that

Honestly, stealing apps is lame. If you are pissed at the dev, think about what you would do if someone was stealing something from you. Would you just let them do it or would you stop them and try to get some money out of it? Good for this Dev, sticking it to all you a** holes stealing his work.

There's plenty of stories of freelance devs that have quit their day jobs to develop exclusively for the iPhone. It's proven to be a money maker if you have time and creativity. Pirating is a big thorn on that and hurt people such as the dev in question from trying to make a living from it.

I have never run a cracked app, but I cannot push them to the wayside. I would rather run a trial version before buying an app (and yes, I buy many many apps), but a lot of the ones I am interested in are expensive and there are no trial periods.

I cracked like 20 apps most of them no less than 5.99 each and i feel glad I didn't waste my money unlike my family members who now regret buying apps like simcity, jaadu, and crap like that, it's not worth it. And by the way I deleted like 18 cracked apps after installation because of how useless and boring they were.

I think it's a great step, if you go onto any developer forums, crackers are the biggest problem, I am not saying I am clean of pirating, in fact I get a bit of music from time to time but I will spend the money more often than not. I am also a developer, at the age of 15, and whilst my app; iGuess, is not the best thing that's ever hit the app store and there is a 9 year old Chinese girl that's done better than myself, I am still so proud that I have got so far and can use the extra funds to help save for a new Macbook to help with my studies in Sixth Form (UK student) as well as resources to improve iGuess and create new, better apps.
I can understand the idea of try before you buy concept but to be honest not many people actually practice what they preach, those are the people that annoy me the most.
