Download Paid iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch Apps for Free without Jailbreak

Having your iDevice’s firmware untouched, that is without jailbreaking and installing the Installous app, there’s no way you can download premium or paid apps for free in your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. The Installous App is a simple yet very popular app that hosts thousands of “cracked” apps on its database so you would be able to select and download such apps right in your iDevice. Installous, however, can only be installed once your device is “jailbroken” — though this doesn’t mean to be able to download paid apps for free always requires you to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.

Well, I just discovered this new app that has been available in the Apple App Store for a couple of days already which allows you to download premium or paid apps for free. Yes, it’s legit and ain’t a jailbreak app; and the good thing is such app is free as well.

This app is called “App of the Day” and is available in selected countries including Japan, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, and of course – the Philippines. The dev’s website says it will soon become available in France and the UK as well.

So how do you get a paid app downloaded in your device for free?

iOS 6 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch is Here! [Direct Download Links]

Apple has already released the final build of iOS 6, the latest version of its firmware for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices. iOS 6 which is made available for iPhone 5 and 5th-generation iPod Touch out of the box will also work with earlier models of iDevices such as the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 2, and The New iPad.

Apple says iOS 6 is available for download as an OTA (over-the-air) update if you’re running iOS 5 or later; unfortunately, I can’t seem to fetch the said update on my iPhone 4S running iOS 5.1.1. So I decided to hook it up to my computer so I can get the latest firmware through iTunes. As usual, if you want to do the same steps in upgrading the OS, all you have to do is just plug your iDevice in the USB interface, fire up the latest version of iTunes, and there you’ll see the notification similar to the one below.

In any case you want to stack iOS 6 in your firmware archives for later upgrade, hit the download links after the break. Yes, all of these come directly from Apple servers. Just click on your device’s version and happy downloading! 🙂

Philippines iTunes Store Is Now Open: What Does It Mean to a Newbie Pinoy iUser?

Apple on Wednesday announced that its iTunes Store is officially available to 12 more Asian countries including the Philippines. Well, that’s good news – but for some non-pro “Pinoy iUsers”, what does it exactly mean?

Technically, the Philippines iTunes Store has been around for quite some time now (if I’m not mistaken, sometime in July 2008) – just that Apple only allows users to download mostly apps from a separate platform, App Store. Previously, iPhone, iPod, and iPad users in the Philippines couldn’t use local credit cards, PayPal, or any other online payment system to buy items from the iTunes Store. They could only purchase and download music, videos, and movies from the iTunes store by using gift cards sold in other countries like the US which already had their own stores.

Until now however, “Pinoy iUserscan already use their locally-issued credit cards to purchase music, videos, movies, and other items from Apple’s extensive library.

Apple’s New iPad Philippine Price and Release Date, We Speculate

Five days from now, The New iPad will start selling in the US as well in other countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland, UK and the US Virgin Islands.

Here in the Philippines, the official release hasn’t been announced just yet; but we can speculate when it will reach our shores and how much would it cost by looking back to Apple’s launching strategy of its earlier generation slates.

First, let’s talk about the price. When Apple launched the iPad 2 last year, it got a price tag for each model just the same with every variant of the first-generation iPad – that is Php 23,990, Php 28,990, and Php 33,990 for 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB Wi-Fi only models, respectively. iPad 2 with Wi-Fi and 3G features also followed the same price schedule as the first-gen iPad – that is Php 30,990, Php 35,990, and Php 40,990 for 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models, respectively.
