    yes it is, if you are using a paid for app without purchaing the app it is theft, plain and simple. the developers need that money to put towards developing newer apps and games and your effectively cutting them short, so if you like it just go out and buy it.

    AHEM! The Site Rules/Guidelines do not forbid discussing the legality of software, but it should be pretty obvious that what you are discussing is in fact plainly illegal. Generally, apps have official "lite" versions that are free, but if it's the same app that's been hacked, it's out of bounds -- for that matter: what guarantee do you have that the app hasn't been hacked into a malicious trojan? Don't forget that your phone knows a lot about you...

    You're a new member, so please don't take this as an insult. I mean it as a friendly reminder to use common sense and to not tempt people to violate the guidelines here.

    I think the original question has been answered so I'm going to close this thread now before it starts to get out of hand.
