Thread: 60% of apps are Pirated!

  1. #1
    Default 60% of apps are Pirated!
    Over at freakbits.com, a blog site that primarily watches the happenings in the torrent world has reported that according to PinchMedia 60% of apps on iPhones are pirated apps.

    A bit draconian in their measures of how they found this out, if in fact that their findings are true:

    60% of All iPhone Apps are Pirated | FreakBits

    At the very bottom of this article is a nifty little flow chart. What is comforting to know is that they DO NOT equate jailbreaking with piracy. What is also interesting to note is that according to them, the biggest infringers are in fact Russia and China, which again if that's true doesn't surprise me entirely as I have been convinced that "Red Countries" are still a bit sore at us for the whole Cold War thing. And anyone who has been tweaking and modding for any length of time knows that the absolute best place to get certain "tools" are almost always from Russian and Chinese sites...

    I refuse to believe a site that can't even render properly in Safari.

    China and Russia have always been big on pirating.
    I don't know anyone that has any pirated apps on their phone.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    Quote-" Do what you want because a pirate is free, you are a pirate."

    I myselft am one of those 233 people who really just use cracked apps for a test. (I wanna see what I get before I buy it right?)

    Piracy could...somehow be legal..(oh so many people would go crazy)
