Side-loading apps on iOS without jailbreak - now possible - read the full textWhatever made the Hackulous team shut down Installous yesterday is surely giving a push to other even easier alternatives for side-loading (and, as is often the case pirating) iOS apps. Two of them are getting quite a lot of attention since Installous shut down - Zeusmos and Kuaiyong. In fact...

Kuaiyong works, I tried it now and managed to get gta vice city on it fully working, there are a few YouTube videos explaining exactly how to use it because the program is currently only in chinese or Japanese I dont know. So yea, gone are the days of jailbreaking

I think you can manage to pay 1$ if you think the app is good by checking some screenshots and a detailed description.

It is a bluff. iOS cannot side load unsigned apps without jailbreaking which is in fact a replacement of genuined OS with another one tampered using a firmware upgrade mechanism. Jailbraking is changing the original OS with a tampered OS through upgrade. The original OS cannot install apps out of Apple store, all apps accepted having been signed with a certificate.

have downloaded this app on my iphone 5 and does what it says, well partly what it says, you cant back it up to your itunes and it wasnt allowing me to download files over 1gb, not all files can be downloaded there is a option in the bottom to say "request link" but i dont think my requests are being met

apart from that i would say its a good app worth the money and easy to use.

So what you're saying is that a victim of crime is suddenly the one at fault because they were aware that criminals were out there...??

There are criminals in every facet of society affecting every aspect of it at some level. What the victims of those crimes really need to hear is some childish little tit telling them to stop whining & go do something else...

I wish there is a "rental - free" version for app store. So we might test paid apps if they are worth buying. I believe people would buy if it is worth the money.

Sideloading apps from other sources could be dangerous and risky. Rather do things officially then pirated.

Its like eating on the road side vs going to a restaurant.. u might end up having stomach ache and paying more.

it's your choice to be an app developer while you know and aware of its risk.. so don't whine when your app got pirated.. many developer gets lots of credits from their product.. so grow up and try to be one...
