Hackulous Shuts Down
iDownloadBlog notes that the popular iOS pirated app community Hackulous has announced that it is shutting down. Hackulous’s most popular apps Installous and AppSync will no be made available. A statement from Hackulous reads:
We are very sad to announce that Hackulous is shutting down. After many years, our community has become stagnant and our forums are a bit of a ghost town. It has become difficult to keep them online and well-moderated, despite the devotion of our staff. We’re incredibly thankful for the support we’ve had over the years and hope that new, greater communities blossom out of our absence.
Piracy is a major problem for many iOS app developers as there have been many instances of piracy forcing developers to remove their apps from the App Store. Good riddance.
