    First lets look at the basics

    $10 Is not alot of money people

    Second you pay $50 for a game for a system, this is for the iPhone and the game is not as good as say a wii game or xbox, so its still a game but instead of the normal price of $50 the iPhones is $10

    Lets Look At It This Way

    Super Monkey Ball For Wii

    10 Worlds = $10
    Party Games = $10
    4 Player = $10
    Level Designs = $10
    Coding = $10

    Total = $50

    Super Monkey Ball For iPhone

    5 Worlds (10 If You Count Easy And Hard) = $10
    Level Design = $10
    Coding = $10

    Total = $10

    So You are getting a app which should be $30 for $10 AND iTunes even gets %30 so they only get $7

    Get Over It...

    Just Buy It...

    5 $10 Apps = 1 $50 Game

    Also if you never find a way to fake sign, then you would never get updates or anything like that for the app

    You're talking to the Jailbreak Community of iPod Touch Fans. Average Age.... Around 13 - 16. They won't listen.

    I see where your coming, But whenever I look at the App Store and see A $10 app I think to myself its alot, but in reality its probably because J/B was always Free and it kinda sticks with you...

    That is the ignorance of the Installer community that I hate. They expect that it'll always be free. They never thought of it's future, never think about profitability.

    If someone can profit from it, they will find a way to do it.

    The Way I look at it now...

    J/B was meant to be Free

    App Store was meant for Money, Hence The Name App Store

    But apps like TouchPad deserve a price...

    What gave the impression that the Apps in Installer and Jailbreaking were meant to be Free?

    Jailbreaking only opened up the Platform for creating applications.

    see, i get what your saying khaos and i totally respect that, but its just that i need the money for other stuff, since i am saving up a $1500 iMac and do not have the $10 to spend on a little game, so having hacked apps can sometimes be great. besides the last game i bought for my ps3 was GTA 4 and the only way i was able to buy that was through selling my old games to blockbuster
    so these kind of things are good and just benefit some people in need

    but i do respect your opinion and do think it is wrong to have cracked apps

    makes sence i guess not that ill be buying sh*t but 10$ might not seem like a lot of money to us but there are places where full time workers only make $3.50 a day or so..(good luck buying an ipod with that lol) anyways i just dont think the apps would be worth buying...id play em once but after you beat em thats pretty much it aye

    So what about games for the Consoles, Handhelds, Cell Phones, etc. (Past and Present.)

    You paid for the Platform (iPod Touch/iPhone/Console/Handheld etc) It comes with what it comes with.

    If you want more from it, you must get Content. And who delivers content? Individuals and Companies. Some will want compensation, some will not. Just how things work.
