This is the last warning. Talk of pirating apps or stealing is against forum rules. It stops now. Anyone else talking of pirating a app will get a automatic infraction.
All of you are longtime members too and should know the rules by now...

Back on topic: we're talking about the Mac app store and some bugs it had at launch.
01-07-2011, 08:34 AM #44
I've noticed that Apps downloaded from the App Store have a blue "Installed" button on the apps page, but already installed Apps (i.e iLife from DVD) have a Grey "Installed" button.
I would like to be able to re-download iLife or iWork via the App Store in the future, should I do a reinstall of Mac OS X, or when Lion comes out I'll most definitely be doing a clean install. Apple could allow you to tie your iWork Key to your Apple ID, but iLife has no sorta key.

On my Hackintosh, I thought that Apple could of done something to not make it work on my system, because the app store wasn't letting me install anything.
It turns out that the App Store requires the latest iTunes. I only had iTunes 10 installed on it. Once I updated itunes, it worked perfectly.

It is you who should be banned from these forums for you lack of respect towards other members.
I don't care what you meant or how you meant it - you insulted me, and the *** population, and I will be reporting you to the forum moderators for this and requesting that you are, if nothing else, given a formal warning for your barbed insult.
Oh, and not everyone that reads these articles are mac fan bois that own macs worth $1000 and neither can you assume that just because you can afford that buck, so can everyone else!
Welcome to the REAL world.

I Love Jailbreak apps, they make the iPhone so much better I just wish they were available on the app store, not only would it profit apple but it would also save them a lot of time and grief with the nightmare cat n mouse crap, giving them more time to combat piracy!
If iOS was open source the user would save money and apple would make there 30% and wipe out cydia!
No more strict as strict app store rules stopping apps like Stotify do what we currently need Extra apps to do(Music Controls) More devs on the app store also means better tweaks than currently availible on cydia!
I think you should just have to be connected to the net when first running an app for it to be registered! Look at Music Controls, it can't be hacked for precisely this reason, but app store apps can, a perfect example of Perfect security on an open source (Jailbroken) device!!
All apple are doing locking its users away from awesome tweaks and apps that modify system files etc is promoting jailbreaking, which then allow users to go one step further and pirate app store apps! Instead of taking away all our goodies to stop piracy, why dont they just Stop Piracy... Like Phoenix Does Perfectly Fine without locking the phone up as much as humanly possible, causing the total drama that is the jailbreak scene!!!!
Why can't apple work this out it's not hard... :-/

lets say if someone makes a tweak, apple lets it into the app store, it contains a code that does something to the phone, people complain, the press gets a hold of it and blows it up into a massive bug that only a few thousand people our of a million people are getting and then apple need to call a press conference say they are sorry, give something away for free, it then goes quiet for a month, the following month, the same thing happens again but with another app...
seriously, i think cydia should stay cydia and app store stay app store. the people who jailbreak there devices get what they want out of there devices and the people who dont can complain or jailbreak, either way everyone stays happy, even if jailbreaks take a while to be released, you can either stay on the jailbreakable firmware or upgrade and be stuck

As long as they make sure paid apps work in the same way as Phoenixs Music Controls it wont matter that the iphone is now more unsecure, or even, open source!
And if tweaks are still installed via a 3rd party app it wont be apples fault if bugs come along, they just put a disclaimer on the Cydia app on the app store...

I thought the AppStore already used DRM. If they make it so that apps can only be run with an online connection, that would be devastating to iPod Touch owners, and it will cost iPhone owners to use network time.
And Whoa, this thread is falling apart fast. We need a Mod to come down with a heavy fist here, I think.

Something this article doesn't make very clear is how the ordinary user is affected. If you don't hack your Mac, are you fine? Is it only the people who have the hackintosh that are affected?

One of the important things being left out of this discussion is hosting and bandwidth. Sure, Amazon, et al will gladly manage transactions for you, but where are people going to download your fine software from? Does Apple host the file, or provide pointers to it? If they sponsor the B/W, then ~30% cut is a good deal. Anyone know?

Download any app, run it, connects to THEIR (apples) server, unlocks the app and that's that...
Edit: you have to be online to download the app in the first place so I don't see how it would be a problem to anyone
