Cydia + Rock = LOVE FOR EVER

Το Cydia εξαγόρασε το!

Η SaurikIT, LLC εξαγοράζει την Rock Your Phone, Inc και πλέον απομένει μόνο μία ενναλακτική πρόταση στο App store, το Cydia!

Το αναφέρει ότι θα υπάρξει μία μεταβατική περίοδος 10 ημερών, όπου οι χρήστες θα μπορούν να χρησιμοποιήσουν το, μετά το πέρας της οποίας οι εφαρμογές αλλά και οι άδειες των αγορασμένων εφαρμογών θα περάσουν κάτω από την διαχείριση του Cydia:

After 18 months in the iOS Jailbreak scene Rock has been acquired by SaurikIT (makers of Cydia) and over the next few days we will be moving all products/users/licenses over to Cydia Store.
We have worked hard together with SaurikIT/Cydia to ensure a very smooth transition where all customers will retain their App licenses and be able to install them through Cydia at will.
If you already have a Cydia Store login, your licenses have already transferred. Those who do not have a Cydia Store login, simply use (or create) your Google Account/Facebook account to login to Cydia Store, and your licenses will transfer automatically.
If you’ve changed devices in the last day or two, don’t worry. You can simply type in your RockID and your licenses will transfer over.
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.

Ποιος είναι ο αριθμός των εφαρμογών/χρηστών/αδειών που αναμένεται να μεταφερθούν στο Cydia; Διαβάστε παρακάτω:

  • Νumber of Developers with apps listed in the Rock Store: 124 (from 19 countries)
  • Unique iOS devices that installed Rock: 4.6 million (from 220 countries/territories) – Wow that is a lot of places!
  • Registered Rock Users: 2+ million
  • Number of App licenses sold: 500,000
  • Users of who took the plunge and bought something: 280,000 (from 185 countries)
  • Total Rock Your Phone Store revenue (March 12th, 2009 – September 2010): $3.3+ million
  • Number of Rock Employees (we are using the word employee loosely here but, hey, it is our company): 9
