    With Apples Appstore and 2.0 software update for the iPod Touch and iPhone to be released with a the next month, a immense competition shall begin between Appstore and Installer. Both have different sides:

    Installer: Up and running with many applications for current public software
    Appstore: Beta, and not released to the public, and no current Apps.

    One over time will kill the other. No doubt about that. Lets look at the full view of the pro's and con's

    Users already jailbroken may get left behind because of no applications to date are capable to install apps on 2.0 Firmware except Appstore. For this reason, there will eventually be an amazing app in Appstore that will cause at least half of the 1.1.4 jailbroken community to convert 2.0

    So the questions are:
    Will Appstore be as popular as Installer?
    Will Appstore kill Installer?
    Will Installer overpower Appstore?

    I want to throw gasoline on you and light you on Fire so I can add to the carbon dioxide on the planet to further global warming so the world will finally go bye bye.

    Dev teams Will not Die.

    Developers Will not Die.

    Chances are...

    Installer will Co-exist with the AppStore.

    Psh, there is no "Chance". Installer will co-exist with Installer. Psh, do you think that people are just going to was to sit back and BUY apps from Apple. No! They will want some for free. So they will use App store to get good games and apps etc, and installer for free stuff.

    knowing apple, and their stupidity...

    There will probably be an "appstore exploit" to put Installer in the AppStore xD.

    It depends if Apple's restrictions are too much for people but, it has a good chance.

    Not likely, because there will always be certain people who like doing whatever they want and not having restrictions.

    Not sure, but we'll find out.

    App Store will have the apps and like ALL of the apps we have today, you get a demo. Installer will either host the cracks or a way to get around it - in my eyes. This way Installer will sstill live, and devs can do what they do.

    Or, Installer will die, and KCNScrew Mobile will arise.

    Dev Teams will die. Example:
    Dav Team died this week
    TouchRev was hacked, another flaw of installer.

    Sources will eventually become hacked or other and be taken down by somebody.
