    The reasons of the hacker are reasonable, and the developer is taking it in stride because he understands as well.

    It really sucks how many people pirate apps. As everyone should know, these cracked apps are not allowed here so please, nobody post any links or promote them. I really agree that Apple should incorporate a "Try Before You Buy" system into the App Store. Don't be surprised if they do incorporate something like this in a future firmware update.

    It could not be because his game sucks noooooo..... Its because people stealing......... Thats it yea!!!

    I do not support crackers at all, but any developer blaming piracy for them not making money is an idiot! Fact is most people who own an iphone or ipod touch do not even know what a jailbreak is let alone what a cracked app is or how to get them. Fact is he is not making money because no one wants to pay for is sh*t app, so the only people downloading it are the very small amount of people using cracked apps because its free. I say small amount of people because as stated above most people do not even know about cracked apps.

    Im sorry I do not condone piracy, but I also do not support mindless propaganda. Make a decent app and you will make money!!!!!!!

    All those figures show is that no one wants to pay for his app. Who here can honestly say they would buy that app. Its a stupid wak-a-mole game!

    I agree.

    I mean if I see an app that looks mildly interesting that is free I would download it in a heartbeat, but I have a tight wallet when it comes to apps because there are so few genuinlly good ones.

    I do not pirate apps, I am paranoid apple will somehow find out and send a ninja death squad after me, and I like doing things by the book for some reason, like to be offical. AT&T <3 iPhone
