    Just read a news story about this too. I think it will be a good thing. I hope it will allow all devs to sell their apps (like Snapture, irealsms, intelliscreen... etc) through a single source. It would be like the App Store except for jailbroken apps. And of course there will be a theme section.. and not to worry I'm sure everything that's free now will stay free from what I gather.

    I think it'll be great. As long as the media doesn't spin it as a store for software pirates or something. (The media has a way of twisting things)

    I agree, it's should be great to have a means to buy the apps one wants without having to find the registration and payment routes for each program.

    Well you know the second a company sees a way of making quick money through a single thing, they'll make free things cost at least a bit... idk though.

    Not me. Themes are nice to have so you're not stuck with the same boring icons, etc, but it doesn't improve the functionality of your iPhone. I wouldn't buy them.
    Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

    This gives me a sinking feeling -- like one day Cydia will be empty, or full of junk - because everything useful moved to Cydia store. Hope I'm wrong.

    I think paying for a premium theme is entirely acceptable, especially if it is implied that the theme creator will create icons for your programs. He then has an obligation to keep the theme up to date with new apps and other popular apps that weren't included in the original theme release. He'll want to do this otherwise new people will not want to buy his theme as it becomes outdated. $0.99 for a professional theme sounds mighty fine to me.

    I think openly raging war with Apple may not be a good thing...

    But who knows, this may force Apple's hand to fully open the iphone which will end up a good thing.

    Wait and see.

    Well, the store is up There is only one app to purchase. Cyntacts for $0.99. It is an app that displays pictures next to your contacts. I purchased it immediately b/c I know saurik makes quality programs and also to support him for all of his work on cydia and the iphone platform. He has made a lot of this possible and I have never contributed until now. And even now, it's only $1.

    When I try to click on Cyntact I receive a message that I need to install more sources.

    Edit: Forget it. My Cydia had not yet updated. All good now.

    Ditto. Not sure I really wanted pictures w/my contacts, but periodically supporting good (no great) iPhone developers is important.

    Now this basically leaves apple no choice but to take full take action against all the jailbreak community. What a bad Idea,Cydia will run fo 6 months and make billions then shut down . then were right back to were we started, Pay Apple for apps.

    "if its not broken , don't fix it"

    Well I won't go that far. One thing is sure ...... Apple WILL notice and Apple WILL try to kill it with their billion-dollar legal team.

    That's right and then systematically go after everyone else. Cydia got the ball rolling on this one.Cydia will set a bad precedent and Apple wont let it happen for long.

    its simple...move Cydia servers to Europe, Apple can´t a do a single thing, because jailbreal will NEVER be declared illegal on the EU


    i am not worried at all with Apple´s legal actions...
