Installous Is No More, Hackulous Packs Their Bags and Say Farewell

In a move that honestly surprised me, Hackulous; the team behind the fan favorite sideloading app "Installous" have closed up shop and said their final good-byes. Attempting to run Installous on any iOS device will now yield the error:
 "Outdated Version
Installous will now terminate"
Heading over to the Hackulous website; ( will shed some light on the matter, where you're greeted with a solemn and sad message:

Goodnight, sweet prince.

We are very sad to announce that Hackulous is shutting down. After many years, our community has become stagnant and our forums are a bit of a ghost town. It has become difficult to keep them online and well-moderated, despite the devotion of our staff. We're incredibly thankful for the support we've had over the years and hope that new, greater communities blossom out of our absence.

With lots of love,
Hackulous Team
However all is not over for the casual jail breaker and self admitted app pirates out there, there remains a number of alternatives to installous that get the job done, some are better some are quite ugly; we'll leave it to you to decide, but a short list are:
  1. App VV
  2. App Cake
  3. V share
  4. iFunBox
But this is the end of an era... farewell hackulous.
