Bad news for Apple’s jailbreak community right on the eve of the New Year: Installous, a major portal for pirated paid apps from Apple’s App Store, won’t be around anymore in 2013. Development team Hackulous today announced the closure of Installous on their official Web site.

As of today, the pirated app store no longer works, and only shows these errors: “Outdated version. Installous will now terminate” or “API Error. API unavailable.”

For many years, Installous offered complete access to thousands of paid iOS apps for free for anyone with a jailbroken iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Think of it as being able to walk into a fancy department store, steal anything you want, and never get caught.
