    I downloaded an .ipa file directly on to my iPad. Is there an app that would install it? I used iDownload and it says it couldnt find an app to open it with.:confused:

    Sure no answer. You only get .ipa files via app store. So any .ipa just downloaded from the web would be illegal. And in this terms, it's not a discussion topic for a forum.

    So we advocate Jailbreaking, which gives you Cydia, which gives you (EDIT) and about 10 Repositories that Ive found to contain illegal downloads.

    Its the whole "guns don't kill people. People Kill people. Don't blame the gun."

    Believe me, I get it. I do buy all the programs I have permanent on my iPad. I use this process to try out the product prior to buying. Yes, some of them have free versions. But alot don't and I want to be satisfied with my 2.99 purchase.

    Don't worry, Won't happen again. I'll find actual technical answers in a setting more conducive to my needs. Thanks for the name calling. "Go Apple!"

    ............whatever...........:cool:

    Try looking at Hackstore, imodforums, or redmondpie for the answers u seek. I do get what ur saying though. Why have it avalable if its soo wrong. Its not people trying to resell the apps. Jailbreaking in itself is considering the same as installing cracked apps to most folks. So we support the lesser of two evils? Lol. Apple hates jailbrake n hates cracked apps but we condone jailbrake n not the other? It should be to each their own as long as they not trying to resell the app in any shape or form. People do honestly want to try out the app first. Not all free versions give u the fullblown experience to test out. Juss saying...lol

    You are welcome, pirate. And for the record, Cydia does not deliberately ship with any repositories which host pirated software. These have to be added by pirates themselves... Jailbreak does NOT equal piracy.

    and, for the record, Jailbreaking is NOT illegal, so it is discussed and promoted freely without fear or repercussion.

    And you know, OP, from the tone of your posts, I would really doubt you have valid licenses and receipts for every piece of software (app or otherwise), movie or song on your PC/MAC/iPad.

    Use file. Find the .ipa and tap it and file will install it. I think it does .deb files too.
