Uploaders

All people uploading links to AppAddict must obey the rules set out in this section, or your account may be terminated without prior warning or notice.

Just IPA’s, DMG’s or EPUB’s - No ZIP, No RAR

Only links to .IPA, .DMG or .EPUB files are allowed to be added (every app, even from Mac App Store should be manually packaged in DMG image if not). If the Download file is ZIP, RAR or requires a password, it is not allowed here. Violators will be banned.

No links to folders

Only links to .IPA, .DMG or .EPUB files are allowed to be added (yes, we should say it again). If the Download link follows to a folder with files on some hosting - your submission will be denied.

Resubmissions

Resubmissions are strictly not allowed, a resubmission is when you post an already posted link onto the site in order to get that same link higher in the downloads list. You may only resubmit an app link if the link becomes dead, the newly submitted link should be different to the old link submitted.

Credit the Crackers

When submitting links it is only fair to credit the cracker. If you are unsure of whom the cracker is please mark as unknown don’t try to pass it off as your own. People found to be knowingly not crediting crackers or passing as their own will be banned.

Icon File

Any submitted apps that have had the Default.png images modified are strictly not allowed and will be deleted straight away. This is to avoid people advertising on their cracks.

DMG Image

Any submitted .dmg images that have had the Backgrounds modified to contain any links to another resources are strictly not allowed and will be deleted straight away. This is to avoid people advertising on their cracks.

Cracker Names

AppAddict has decided we will not allow crackers to advertise their cracking teams in their cracker submitter ID. This is to stop people advertising other services and websites. This rule applies to all crack submitters even the AppAddict cracking team. We however still allow crack links to be submitted containing cracker name and also cracking team if you so wish!

Advertising Instant Ban and IP Block

AppAddict will not stand for any form of advertising on our website. This includes adding URLs, domains, twitter accounts, or Company Names etc., except the Cracker or Cracking Team name you can add into the file name or link. We are very strict on this so please abide by this.

Text File Links

People try to be clever and upload links to txt files pointing to IPA’s or DMG’s hosted elsewhere please don’t do this you will be caught and banned instantly.
