    So lately whilst looking at the highly illegal, shall not be named version of the app store I noticed things are missing, for example chaos rings, final fantasy and street fighter. They used to be there but now it seems like the apps are slowly disappearing, is it just me or is this happening to other people as well, could it be anything to do with file hosting sites shutting down?

    You could always buy the apps.

    Nah, I still see 'em. Though I prefer to actually buy them and support the devs.

    Keep B'awwwing self-righteous white knights.

    Anyway, the .ipa files are being linked to on everyone and their mother's half-assed blog, so they're being taken down a shit ton faster. Google search for the .ipa, or wait until they're re-uploaded.

    I figured we weren't supposed to help people because of this thread. It'd be as if (according to what the thread says) helping someone with a ROM site.

    The rules state you can only not link to ROM sites, otherwise the entire scene release box with filename mentions breaks that rule.

    Yeah the filesharing hosts are shutting down and Apple is cracking down on this as well.
    You've noticed that you have to do an extra CAPTCHA before downloading anything right?

    You might want to find a different way to sideload those apps, (or whatever the term is on IOS), because as others have said, Apple is cracking down on it, and usually the author of the appstore is slow to fix the broken links.
