    The App Store:

    • Will not be a Bandwidth Hog
    • Will have no Porn
    • Will have Privacy
    • Will not have Unforseen consequences
    • Will not have Malicious Code or Software
    • Will not have anything that is Illegal

    While Installer WILL have:

    • Will probably be a Bandwidth Hog
    • Will most..WILL have Porn
    • Will have probably Privacy issues
    • Will have Unforseen consequences
    • Will have Malicious Code or Software
    • Will have anything that is Illegal

    Understand now?

    But it's true though, Think about it.

    There is NO ONE Regulating Installer.app.

    Anyone can freely distribute their own apps.

    No one checks for Malicious code. It's up to the people who develop their apps to be honest.

    ur making it sound like installer is some huge illegal problem that will destroy us all. its not, if anything is reported bad, its taken down relatively quickly and the community is alerted. stick with app store and boring apps if u wish, ill stick with the opportunity to use anything i can think up.

    I agree with you mate, but installer has been around a while, its been good while its lasted

    Anyway half this forum is based on installer, you have to give it SOME credit

    It could be. There are many repos for "Cracked" apps and ROMS. It's almost no different from Limewire in terms of what it serves. So far, it has no Viruses and isn't P2P.

    The AppStore won't have boring Apps, trust me.

    AppStore = Limited but More Secure and Stable.

    Installer = Liberated but Less Secure and Compatibility Issues.

    Each one has it's upsides and it's downsides.

    exactly.

    but to be frank, the security really relies on the user, if they are stupid enough to install anything without looking into it, thats their problem, that goes for sources as well
