    Piracy is certainly going to be the primary use, but app piracy is not a big deal. Apps are so cheap and so easy to get legitimately, that the only people bothering to pirate apps are the types who would NEVER have bought them no matter the cost -- so developers aren't really losing money. In fact, it's mostly just kids who's mommy/daddy is smart enough not to let them have their own iTunes account with a credit card on it.

    You can't say enough bad things about this, but because there is no jailbreak, and if this is made available for 4.0.2 and above, a whole lot of folks will utilize things like this out of frustration.

    Please don't use Cydia in the same sentence as piracy.

    This is a simply an attempt at headline grabbing by a bunch of shoddy devs intent on generating a bit of chat. What their app does is nothing special, all devs can do same. They know their accounts can be shut down, in effect killing the "app". Get f****** real

    If you really didn't want this to get publicity and attention, you should have never written an article about it and then tweeted about your article. At some point you have to realize that fanning the flames to increase your pageviews is counterproductive.

    Are you an idiot? MMi does not condone piracy. Read the disclaimer.

    This is terrible...

    I probably never would have heard of this if it wasn't for this post. This is kinda publicizing it. Pointless to talk about something that is not approved of. Everyone on this forum knows about jailbreaking, and probably 90% of those people know the name of the app needed to pirate. Sooo I geuss no damage done? Just wasted effort.

    That's not true. You can download GameCenter through Cydia on any firmware above and including 4.0. This can easily be an already jailbroken ipad on any of those firmwares.
