    I guess it was only a matter of time before this would happen with the Cydia Store and ZodTTD trying to force people to "donate" to get his apps.

    I just opened Cydia to see an update for Gameboy4iPhone. I went to update it, and got a few errors saying "Forbidden; Donate first."

    What utter bullsh*t.

    Is this how all future updates will be for ZodTTD emulators?

    Edit; Also, thanks to the update still being "available" I get to have a permanent "1" over my Cydia icon. What a joke. ZodTTD is trying to FORCE people to donate to him with this.

    While I enjoyed all of this being free, we must realize how much we're taking this system (Cydia) for granted.

    There's a lot of things out there..... And the developers spend their time making it.

    I guarantee you we wouldn't be complaining if they started charging from the beginning.
    I'm also upset, but I also believe they have every right to charge you for it.

    Is there a minimum donation price?
    2 bucks doesn't sound bad for somebody that has been supporting us since the 1.1.1 days.

    Yeah, it's a joke for people to want to be compensated for the work they do. Damn shame.

    If people want to donate, they will. From what I've seen, people are VERY generous towards Cydia Developers, and ZodTTD is no exception.

    If he wants to charge people to use his apps, fine. But he shouldn't be trying to force people into paying him if they don't want to be harassed by the update notification on Cydia. That's bullsh*t.

    Either you make it a paid app on Cydia store (nothing wrong with that) or you accept donations. Forcing people to donate is just stupid from the very principle.

    How dare someone get payed for hard work!! How dare he charge for something that he left free for so long. Stop complaining if you were him you would want money too. If you dont like it then dont buy it!!!!

    Its only $2 and no one is holding a gun to your head. If you dont want to pay for the update, then just don't and stop complaining.

    If you want the "1" to go away, SSH into your ipod and copy the app somewhere safe. Then uninstall it from cydia. Now SSH it back where you fond it. Update will no longer show in cydia.

    Its not forcing you to update. Just dont update its that simple.
