Pirate iOS App Store and Related Services Go Dark

Hackulous closed its doors for good, according to a report from TorrentFreak. The entire community that catered to offering cracked apps for Apple's iOS devices seems to have unceremoniously died or shut down yesterday. This includes Apptrackr, the web-based partner index for cracked apps; and Installous, an app used by millions to transfer those cracked apps to iOS devices.

The operators of these sites and services say that a "lack of activity" is the main reason for shutting the whole thing down.

"We are very sad to announce that Hackulous is shutting down," the Hackulous team said in a statement yesterday. "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."

TorrentFreak has more information on the shutdown of these sites and services, but much of the decision to take these things offline is still unknown.
