    You can not discuss this topic here. How many times do you have to be told? It is illegal to steal apps.

    Listen ********, and sorry to be such an ******** myself, but you have to stop and think for a second...

    Here's some food for thought. Mods, feel free to sticky this if you want to.

    Developers work on apps for DAYS and NIGHTS, MONTHS, and sometimes even YEARS! They spend time away from their families and their friends in order to code these apps, and get the bugs out. They spend their hard earned dollars to buy books to learn how to code properly, so people don't bitch when their ANGRY BIRDS app closes unexpectedly. And while most of these developers ENJOY doing this, which is why they are so good at it - think about this - DO YOU THINK THEY DO THIS FOR FREE? NO THEY DO NOT. They do it to get paid, just like you work to get paid.

    If you don't mind me asking, what do you do at your day job? Do you own a business? Take this as an example: imagine you owned a business that made shirts, and you were the only person in your "business." Now imagine someone comes into your shop, while you aren't looking, and just BLATANTLY steals the materials that you spent your hard earned money and time to make and produce. HOW WOULD YOU FEEL?

    What if you spent your time learning how to code, making apps, and debugging them only to have people STEAL THEM! HOW WOULD YOU FEEL?

    Jailbreaking your iDevice to steal apps is ILLEGAL, and just plain morally wrong - especially during the holidays. Jailbreaking is LEGAL, jailbreaking to steal apps IS NOT LEGAL! Jailbreaking does not mean you will have your pick of free apps, it just means that certain functions of your device, YOUR DEVICE, one that you purchased from APPLE with YOUR money, will be in a sense "unlocked". Multi-tasking pre-4.2.1 was what attracted me to jailbreak my iPad, and then I learned about the other jailbreaking tools and apps that make my everyday use of the iPad much more enjoyable. HOWEVER, I DID NOT DOWNLOAD PAID APPS ILLEGALLY

    ONCE AGAIN, it is just PLAIN WRONG TO DO THAT. DO NOT DO IT. If you do, you have no heart and you deserve to die in a ditch.

    Whoa, guys...Whoa!
    It looks likely that you are making an unsupported assumption here.

    I just looked through all 10 of BBs posts on here.
    Nowhere does he say he is trying to get PAID apps for free.
    It is just as likely that he is asking if he can STILL get free apps if he JBs.

    It definitely appears that he is unclear about JB, or why he might benefit from it, and is trying to find out.

    I know that I have dozens of free apps and games on my iPads,
    And I am pretty sure you folks do too.
    None of them are pirated.
    These were distributed free by their developers.


    We should probably ask for clarification before we jump to wild assumptions of what he means.

    Jailbreak + "Free" Apps? Hmmm, whatever could he mean? Sorry, pretty easy to understand the meaning. Even if they come back and say "no, I wasn't looking to get paid apps for free" after the fact, we all know what was really being asked.

    You don't have to Jailbreak to get free apps - just search the app store for them.

    Free apps

    I am glad you IPAD masters are not on a Jury. I believe he was asking if the free apps are still going to be free if he jail breaks his ipad. I can see how one (esp a newbie), would think that if they "jailbroke" their ipad, that apple would reject his Ipad when going to the App section and would not be allowed to download the free apps. He is asking if he still has access to "ITUNES". If he wanted to ask about stealing apps, why would he care if he could access Itunes. If he was that smart, he could import his music by other means. Also, if he were that smart he wouldn;t have posted his question. I am in the I.T. field and deal with end users everyday. Believe me when there are a LOT of people out there that do not understand a lot of what is going on in the technology field.

    Jail breaking is not illegal, though. Stealing apps are ~ that is why it is a forbidden topic on here.
