    Default Pirates download wrong Installous in app store, ironically get mad.



    Installous, the pirate app store that allowed those so inclined to download iOS apps for free may already be long gone, but that hasn’t stopped plenty of people downloading it from the App Store. Or at least, they thought they had.

    See, there’s a new Installous in town, and it’s by a developer called Larisa Flora. It’s not the Installous you’re thinking of though – this one’s a game which involves gears and colors, apparently.

    What it’s not, is a way of ripping off developers. And people are not happy at all.

    A quick glance at some of the reviews for Installous show that plenty of people seem to be downloading the game in the belief that it will let them pirate apps. It won’t, and they’re mad about that.



    Ironically, they’ve all paid $2.99 for the privilege of finding out they can’t download games for free, which smacks of more than a little irony. The fact they’re all taking to the App Store to vent their anger is, simply put, hilarious. Here's one such review from the App Store:

    Developer changed the name of his game to try and take advantage of people trying to install installous. He’s a scam artist.
    Whilst it’s ironic that someone is complaining about being scammed out of $3 when they’re trying to do the same to countless developers, the reviewer who left the above work of art does indeed raise an interesting question. Did this developer pray on the hapless pirate, hoping to take advantage of their eagerness to steal? Quite possibly. Do I condone it? Not really.

    Do I care? Not one bit.

    What I don't get is, why the hell does Apple let this happen? This has happened before at least 10 times. The developer posted false information and pictures, and people paid money for it, knowing after buying it, it was something that wasn't describe.
    Example: Many developers kept posting "Minecraft like" games. People bought it, knowing it was like Minecraft, but after buying it, it was some stupid block jumping game. This happened at least 5 times.

    I don't know why Apple won't put a stop to developers posting fake apps and games, with false information and pictures,

    Lol this was a good laugh. In a way, could've been a marketing scheme but who knows honestly?

    Actually Apple is cracking down on this. They've recently introduced a new policy regarding fake screenshots of apps, they'll be inspecting screenshots to make sure they match the actual app.

    I wasn't talking about this one specifically. I was talking about other fake apps and games in the past. She did mention in the description, it is, in fact, a puzzle game. But I meant other fake apps and games in the past that ripped people off. They had a fake description, and pictures. People were pissed and demanded money back. I wasn't talking about this one.
