Piracy is the biggest Pain in the A## for developers and might be for users who don’t want to pay for an App. Indeed it is a great pain in the A## for developers who make Apps with real hard work and great motivation for the users on different platform’s. It goes with iOS and Android. The piracy has screwed both of them. We have seen developers trying to make their Apps more secure on iOS than Android because iOS is on the top list of piracy. Every new game that releases in the iOS App Store comes to list of piracy in just a matter of time.
If we estimate the piracy rate on iOS, it would be 90% on daily basis. If we see Android in the matter of Piracy, the rate goes even higher than iOS. The piracy rate on Android would be 95-97% (The rates are purely estimated on the basis of cracked Apps that we found at different places). In other words, Android got more piracy than iOS. This can be confirmed by the lowering of prices on the Google Play Market. The piracy has made the Developers to lower the prices of the Apps on Google Play Market to avoid piracy. Unfortunately, the piracy isn’t stopped.
Likewise, recently the developer of MadFinger games has made the most downloaded and the best FPS graphics App on Android free due to piracy lush called DEAD Trigger. This App is also available on the iOS Platform.
At first DEAD Trigger was a paid App on Android Platform and later on, it was made free due to privacy lush only on Google Play Market. The developers of the DEAD Trigger stated the reason of making it free on their Facebook page blaming the piracy as the main reason.
Regarding price drop. HERE is our statement. The main reason: piracy rate on Android devices, that was unbelievably high. At first we intend to make this game available for as many people as possible – that’s why it was for as little as buck. – It was much less than 8$ for SHADOWGUN but on the other hand we didn’t dare to provide it for free, since we hadn’t got XP with free-to-play format so far. – However, even for one buck, the piracy rate is soooo giant, that we finally decided to provide DEAD TRIGGER for free. Anyway – DEAD TRIGGER is not FREEMIUM, it always was and still remains FREE-TO-PLAY, that means, all players are able to play it without IAP! We stand up for this statement, because all members of our team are playing (and enjoying) DEAD TRIGGER without IAP.
They have lowered the price of their App called SHADOW Gun from $8 to $4.74 in the Play Market due to piracy rate. However, the App DEAD Trigger on iOS still costs $0.99 and hasn’t yet made free.
