Cydia køber Rock.app

Efter at Rock har eksisteret i 18 måneder på jailbreak scenen har Cydia nu købt Rock, som var startet af Mario.

I en periode over de sidste par måneder har folkene bag de 2 uofficielle appstores, arbejdet på at Cydia skulle købe Rock og overtage Rock og dets apps.

Der er intet officielt kommet ud omkring hvad det evt. har kostet Jay Freeman(manden bag Cydia) at købe Rock.

Over de næste 10 dages tid vil brugere stadig kunne købe apps/temaer hos Rock, men efter det vil man være tvunget til at bruge Cydia Store.

De ting man har købt på Rock, vil blive overført til Cydia, så Cydia også ved at du har købt det.

Kyle Matthews fra modmyi.com har haft muligheden for at chatte med Mario omkring købet af hans 18 måneders arbejde

It’s been a fun ride. We set out to change the landscape and I think we were very successful. I think we contributed to attracting more business professionals to the iPhone jailbreak community, and added some great functionality to the platform. The current transaction with Cydia is a great opportunity for us. We’re going to miss some of the excitement, but no reason for anyone to worry. I, personally, will be spending even more time in Intelliborn apps development (both existing and exciting new projects). A few months ago, Jay and I sat down together and we realized, I enjoyed making apps more (and was better at it), while Jay enjoys providing platform functionality. It was a win-win for both groups and we’re excited about the transition.
Ciabarra, aka psuskeels, has been making jailbreak apps since very early on in the scene (Intelliscreen came out in May of 2008) – just a couple months after Cydia’s February 2008 release. And while Intelliborn will still be a big player in the iPhone 3rd party apps scene, Rock will not. All the Intelliborn apps, like MyWi, Tlert, MyProfiles, My3G, Intelliscreen, etc will all remain available and development will be continued on them. They will all be available solely in Cydia now. In fact, this move means a total of over 21,000 iPhone extensions, apps, and themes are now in Cydia which are not available in the Apple AppStore.
