How to protect my app, not being cracked! Please help, someone wants to crack it!

First off, sorry I chose best answer by accident, I wanted to chose comment on reply! "Stupidity I know"!

Here is the question again!

Hello, I finally released my paid app last week. I look up Google searching for any pirate copies of my app are in process of being cracked. In fact, I found one guy asking for a cracked version of my app.

Please is there anyway I can protect my app? Is there a unique transaction ID from the AppStore for legal users who purchased the app so I can verify each user against a callback from my server. So, I can catch the cracked copy and shut them down?

Also, is there a method to shut the app down?

Thank you, please help me! This sucks!

  • There are a variety of methods available for protecting your application from piracy, but most involve pretty solid knowledge of Objective-C to implement. Here's a good thread to get you started on that topic, at which point you'll likely need to implement a custom Titanium Module to put your piracy protection into place.

    • So, there's no way to protect my app unless I have a solid knowledge of Obj-C to implement the techniques ?

      Also, is the "in-app purchases" available in the next Titanium?
