    Default RiP Dev + Anti-piracy!

    Kali Anti-Piracy: Protect App Store products from being pirated.
    Quote Originally Posted by RiP Dev
    After many months of development, we're pleased to present you something new... Something aimed at the developers that make all sorts of awesome stuff for the App Store.


    Every day visiting the App Store we notice hundreds and hundreds of great games, toys, productivity and social apps. The developers spend weeks and months crafting these for us, and in the end... their products get pirated. Why? Well, if you look around on the Internet, the reason is simple -- pirating an app from the App Store, despite the Apple DRM used, is close to trivial now -- buy it, push a button, upload to Rapidshare (or wherever), post an announce on some special site and feel yourself a "cool hax0r".


    The downside to this is that not only the developer is harmed (by losing a significant chunk of sales as there are as much as several million jailbroken iPhones around there that can potentially take advantage of cracked apps), but in the end, us as users are harmed too -- if developer loses interest, this means, no updates, and no new products.


    Either way, enough rambling... As a result of hard work, investigations and diligent tinkering we're now offering a new service to the developers called Kali Anti-Piracy. It is a server-side service that wraps an additional layer of protection to the App Store applications preventing them from being pirated. Over past several months, we have been protecting our products with it, and so far there's still no cracks for them.


    The licensing is dual-tiered, one-time setup fee, with a modest royalty based on the number of copies sold... while this may sound a little rough, in reality, it helps us improve the system further and make sure we keep the hackers on their toes.


    So, if you're a developer, consider giving it a try for one or two of your titles and see how it improves your sales and (heh) karma. And if you're a pirate, expect more and more apps to be much, much harder to crack in the near future.


    System runs in the beta mode for now, so if you want an invite, drop us an email (preferrably with a name of your product(s) already in the App Store). Thanks!
    you know its bad when well named developers are helping their rivals to fight against piracy.

    Well, RipDev is not into piracy. They are just into hacking...

    Like Former Bender always said: Hacking and Piracy is not the same.

    Well from my experince, rip dev is skilled and their protection will be hard to break. And even if it is not possible to make something 100% secure it ill cut down the piracy rate, jus tby locking out the "push this button" and "1x1 guide" kiddies.

    If their solution is well done, why not? They spend time in developing it, if it saves other peoples work for a time from piracy and assures their income, why is it unrightful to make money. Apple left out to develop something working, their shitRM is fail, broken since years. Now something took the time and made somethign up. I think its ok if they do some $$ with it.

    Thanks sam. I was following the discussion here, exactly my opinion. There are Developers around trying to make a living out of developing apps, investing time and money. They'll like someone coming up with a solution, if RipDev makes some money out of a good solution - I am fine with that.

    Well, if it's anything like "Kate" was, breaking the "protection" will require a full restore of your operating system. LOL

    "royalty based on the number of copies sold" - That'll scare most devs away.
