Appulo.us, as it was, is dead… iPhoneTechie.com will start running the IPA Download Site
As we all know Appulo.us was shut down by “Kyek” – the owner and creator of the site. The Appulo.us was a great site for downloading the IPA files for iPhone and iTouch devices, it was very popular, clean and easy to navigate.
I am considering picking up where Kyek left off and starting the same type of community IPA download and upload site.
Kyek made a promise to the comunity that if the site were ever to get shut down by him or anyone else, He would release the source code.
The promise I made back when I started Appulous was that, if the site were ever to get shut down by me or anyone else, I would release the source code. I also promised, on a few different occasions to a few different people, to provide the database (without user data — I have folks’ privacy to protect). Note that these are for educational purposes only. If you try to use it, the consequences are on you.
Well, we have the source code for the entire site and the latest – final database of all Apps/IPAs. I’m in the process of upgrading the iPhoneTechie.com from WP to Joomla CMS so once I’m done with the conversion I will start on the Appulo.us source code and database installation and integration.
Tell me what you think about this idea and if you would like to see something different in the new IPA download site
