    Zen Bound has a new anti-piracy measure where it will stop your game after a little bit and then open up Safari to a message telling you to buy the game or delete it.

    I wonder if this will spread.

    This is only the first step. Of course, we know the crackers will combat this...

    I'm just hoping it won't end up troubling the paying users :|

    About time too.
    I used to use cracked apps , but after getting my 2G , I've bought all my apps , and it feels so much better.
    Since you're helping them live really.

    This is also in Edge. So it's nothing that new. I just haven't seen it before...

    If they would just make trial versions and not stupid watered down versions and slap the name "Lite" on them then it may cut down on piracy. I hate buying stuff and then finding out that it isn't what I wanted.

    That's actually a really good idea! Let players play a bit of it, then tell them to purchase it.
