Paid apps hit jailbroken iPhones


Cydia, the little app that you use to download homebrew apps to the iPhone, got paid apps last night, opening the door for an entire secondary market for app developers including, as Dan at Giz points out, porn.

In all honesty, I haven’t found much compelling in the homebrew app store since the launch of the official App Store. But now that developers can get a little cash for their efforts I foresee a flowering of content that may not get a second look at the official store.
