Sites offer ‘cracked’ iPhone apps

iPhone and iPod touch game piracy has started to rear its ugly head, as an increasing number of videos on YouTube now offer “cracked” iPhone and iPod touch applications—paid software that has been modified for free, generally illegal distribution—promoting sites that allow users to download and install thousands of hacked apps for free. The applications can be used on devices running software version 2.0, 2.1, or 2.2 and do not require users to jailbreak their devices; iTunes 7.7.0 is required to actually synchronize the cracked apps.
