I'm thinking no, and that you just have to hope people won't, but I figured I'd ask anyways, I've looked and didn't find anything. Over the last few days, I've jailbroken my iPod, played around with everything, found out about cracked apps and how easy it was to crack them. I'll admit, I did use a few cracked apps, but I deleted them and bought all the ones that I used that I could afford, I only used a couple, so it wasn't that hard to buy them. I don't support cracked apps, cracking apps, anything of the sort, and I wanted to know if there's any way to prevent your apps from getting cracked. I'm working on making a few games, but got somewhat discouraged and angry when I saw just how easy it was to get cracked apps on your iPod. It downright sucks. Also, does anyone know why Apple doesn't step in more? It seems like it'd be easy enough to kill cracked apps. I don't know much about how cracking them is played out, but I THINK how it works is that people buy the apps, change some code, and resign it, it seems like it would be easy enough for Apple to either 1. Take out iTunes support for IPAs, since that is how most apps are hacked, or 2. Make it so that whenever someone goes to install a new IPA, check with a list that's encrypted to holy hell before the apps work. Alright, apparently I didn't search hard enough, I googled some more and found an article about a company being able to turn cracked apps into demos, I'm just going to add the article to this though because I still want people's opinions on why Apple doesn't step up more, and what methods you use to prevent piracy in your apps. The article is worth a read, but mentions some websites where you can get hacked applications and what not, so here it is with all that edited out and in quotes: Moderators, I'm sorry if this is a touchy subject, I read the rules, and I THINK that as long as I don't post how to download or install apps. I completely understand if this thread needs to be deleted or edited.
