    Piracy

    I was just talking to a friend of mine who develops iOS games.

    He said a new trend for developers is to search the phone for a record of "Cydia" being installed (an app only available to and commonly used by jailbreakers).

    If a record of Cydia is present, display a "sorry, this game does not support pirated devices" message.

    Could we have something like this in the MMF iOS exporter?

    What about negative ratings from p*ssed off pirates, is this a factor to consider?

    I'm not sure how Cydia works, does the app store think they've bought the game? or do they download the apps from somewhere else?

    I don't think you can leave a review if you did not physically purchase it via the app store (the review is associated with your apple ID).

    Bigfoot, I think you download it from third party sites and then sincronize it with your jail broken device. A feature like this to avoid pirating would be greatly welcome.

    I heard they can also get free in-app purchases, how is this possible?

    It annoys me somewhat that as developers we have to go through this whole song and dance with certificates and provisions for the app, yet Apple doesn't seem to bothered about making it difficult for the pirates. Surely theres more they could do. Every sale lost is 30% they don't get.
