Dev claims 80% piracy rate on iPhone title

Tap Fu

Whoops. iPhone developer Smells Like Donkey has told Develop that around 80 percent of all downloads of its Tap-Fu title were illegally downloaded.

Pirating games on iPhone is easy, apparently, thanks to "a kernel patch that bypasses Apple's DRM system" that "would take an average person five minutes in Google to find."

This doesn't bode well. Tap-Fu costs $1.99 on the App Store, but even that clearly isn't cheap enough for some.
