Author Of iPhone Pirating App Angry That His Own App Was Pirated
from the you're-doing-it-wrong dept
Well, here’s an odd one. Gizmodo wrote about the release of Crackulous, an iPhone app for jailbroken iPhones that allowed users to make unauthorized copies of iPhone apps. That, by itself, isn’t all that interesting. However, the author of the software then wrote to the Gizmodo author very upset that the Gizmodo story linked not to his original app but (you guessed it) an unauthorized copy of the app. When Gizmodo’s Adam Frucci pointed out the irony of this, the guy who created Crackulous said that he needed the link to point to his app because “I need people to support my work… I deserve appreciation.” I think someone missed the point. Update: The original post was updated, noting that the guy who wrote in was not, in fact, the original creator of the software.
