Sorry, Jailbreakers: Hackulous Shuts Down. Bye, Installous!

InstallousHackulous, the company behind the popular (and controversial) app Installous which let people easily download pirated apps on jailbroken iOS devices, has shut down. In what iDownloadBlog’s Sebastien Page has called “a small victory against app piracy,” Installous is now no longer available for use. Hackulous announced the closure today in a brief post on its website that 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. With lots of love, Hackulous Team”
