As the old song goes, every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. In essence, that’s what the team behind the well-known iOS app repository, Installous, said to the community they left as they exit the app scene.
In a short message the team left on their website, they mentioned that the main reason for the abrupt departure was the lack of activity in the community and forum. Moreover, they’re also having a hard time keeping the show rolling in spite of the team’s best effort.
In all honesty, we’re finding their cause a little bit hard to believe as it is considering their huge fan base they established through the course of their stay in the business. And because of this, we also think that the team is getting sizeable income from their in-app ads, which leads us to think that there may be a bigger reason behind their decision to leave the industry.
We can all speculate the true root cause of their departure or we can just thank them for countless dough we saved by opting for their service rather than paying the talented developers for their efforts. Either way, we can all agree that Hackulous will be dearly missed and hopefully other groups/communities will be able to fill in the void that the team left in the iOS app ecosystem.
