R.I.P Installous

We are a bit late with this one but just a couple days ago we came to know that our very famous Pirate App Store for iOS, "Installous", has shut down along with the whole of Hackulous team. 
For those who don't know about "Installous", Installous was just like Apple App Store with all the pirated apps in it. It was one of the most easiest way to download any paid application for free on a jailbroken device.

With Hackulous down, anti-piracy advocates will be celebrating. Users currently using Installous will no longer be able to access the app at all - it pops up with a message 'Installous will now terminate'. It's even been removed from the Cydia store.

There was a short message on their website related to their closure
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.
