Title: Petition To Bring Back the App Store
Post by: applepie on January 12, 2012, 03:16:12 AM
Look, replacing the appstore with 3store is the WORST idea ever. How many apps still support 3.x in the app store? It may not seem like a ton, but a lot still do. The idea of 3store was to provide a place to store apps that lost 3.x compatibility, not to replace the appstore.

3Store should not be included… it's an AmDev app… If you need it, install it… problem solved…

In 3store add a hyperlink to open appstore if thats possible. Like they have apptrackr and ipaget

The 3store idea is great and should def be on firmware. There just needs to be an easier way to launch appstore within the 3store.

Not go to safari then bookmarky, that looks to unprofessional

wouldnt it be more effective if it is the other way around? open 3store through appstore if you need it?

anyone knowing freestore? it is a substrate that loads apps if they are paid from anither source than apple. one could do the same thing here...

Yes, loading 3Store through the App Store would be a good idea…

I wouldnt modify appstore cause of coyright issues, id rather do it the other way around. Do a lil IOS Appstore icon like ipaget and from that launch unmodified app store.
Title: Re: Removing AppStore
Post by: RagingNinja on January 12, 2012, 08:53:26 PM
Or you can simply put a 3Store icon back on the home screen like before...

3store should remain as an option to install.

3Store is a great application but i think that the appstore is important too.

3store should remain as an option to install.

It's easier to keep up to date that way...

Give us (coolbreeze,wyndnra1n,me,applepie) the source code for install0us then we will try our best to put it in the settings

Post by: realblack7 on January 16, 2012, 11:30:47 AM
well..you dont need the source code..you need toprogram a bundle that you can call from settings. the installation is done via a bash sceipt, so you need only a program that is able to browse for the ipas, download them, and give the name of it as a parameter to the bash script.

So you should start learning some C

WHAT'S NEXT? ACCESSING PHONE VIA SAFARI? THIS IS LIKE REPLACING MESSAGES WITH TEXT FREE.

COULD I HAVE ONE GOOD REASON WHY HAVING THEM BOTH AS SEPARATE APPS IS A BAD IDEA.

Still it is nicer to just have them separately.

Also, we say we don't support piracy. Then we have a big link to apptrackr on the 3store page. -_-

They should both be included as eventually all apps will completely drop support for 3.1.3

Surely someone could of asked the commuity before they did this? not just assume with a few reasons to "hide" the appstore

so eventually the whited00rers have to use piracy...which is unavoidable in the near future....
Abt appstore, personally i dont mind cause it is not completely removed + if the whited00rers use the 3store they wont insall unsupported apps etc... :D

Tbh, 3store has the potential to be really good, I would give it some time just to get bigger and bigger before it becomes my primary source of getting apps. But yeah, both should be kept.

How about integrating 3Store into AppStore.app? Sound too far fetched? Like a little nav-bar linking to 3Store but it would not actually be displayed on springboard.
Title: Re: Petition To Bring Back the App Store
Post by: WU_4_ever on January 16, 2012, 06:06:01 PM
Keep both.  I have no idea what 3Store is and have not used it.  I do have quite a few apps from the Appstore though.

Well the 3store is good because it provides iOS 3 apps for whited00r firmware. But Appstore provides millions of apps and thousands for iOS 3. So it would be smart and make a lot of people happy if your BRING THE APPSTORE BACK!!!!!

you can still get to the app store by using search.

just type in app and it will be the second result, the first is the 3store.

not the best way but it works
