Well this was inevitable. Zeusmos the app that allowed you to install cracked apps without a jailbreak has been finally shut down. This should not come as a surprise to most of you as it was something many had been expecting.
Zeusmos an app that has been developed by a 15-year-old kid has been available for quite sometime. Well almost a year. But it wasn’t really popular due to availability of apps like Installous which were free and allowed people to install cracked apps on their iOS devices.
Well the shutting down of Installous came as a shock to millions of users worldwide. Since the shutting down, many Installous alternatives have popped up, but most of them have failed to reach the level of Installous. Except one. And, that is Zeusmos.
Zeusmos is one of a kind of app that allows anyone to download paid apps for free and that too without jailbreaking their iOS devices. It went “viral” when TheNextWeb published an article mentioning people could download Zeusmos to download cracked apps without the requirement of a jailbreak. Since then people have flocked to download Zeusmos.
Sometimes being too popular isn’t that good. That’s exactly what happened to Zeusmos. As soon as Zeusmos went viral, the person behind this feared a huge lawsuit (considering Apple, this shouldn’t be a surprise). So, what he did was quickly give a clarification that Zeusmos does not promote piracy and that he intends to change the way Zeusmos works.
Those of you who head over to Zeusmos’s official website get the following message:
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Our website is currently undergoing some maintenance.
Please do not email support about when the site will be back online.
There are currently some major updates in progress of development.
It has been a couple of weeks since Zeusmos is offline, and it seems it won’t be back online again. The reason why it won’t pop back up is simple; if it does get back online, it is going to face a huge lawsuit from various organizations.
Well it isn’t completely over for those people who already downloaded Zeusmos before and mistakenly updated to the new version. Those of you can still upgrade it by heading to the link below.
Download Zeusmos for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch
Those of you who did not download Zeusmos before have another option, as the same developer has another app that allows you to install cracked apps and that is InstaSign. It basically works the same way as Zeusmos, so you might want to give it a try. But the story of Zeusmos is over.
Well what are your thoughts on Zeusmos receiving the same fate as Installous? Let us know in the comment section below.
