When Apple unlocked in-app purchases for free games, many expected this to be the end of application piracy on the iPhone. After all, purchases are now “verified online” – whatever that may mean.
A former anti-piracy expert for Nagravision (a pay-TV company) now started that he considers the solution largely useless:
I couldn’t test all my theories, so hopefully I am wrong, but I strongly believe that In App Purchases are not the holy grail of anti-piracy that Apple and others claim it is. If some people have information to confirm or infirm my claims, I would be glad to hear it.
