At the end of last year, we spoke about the potential new dangers that the iOS 7.0.4 jailbreak uncovered, in relation to how the jailbreak could enable Chinese users to install free apps. Now though, we have an update on this, as it looks like the ‘Tongbu app’ is the ending result and further bad news for Apple.

Users have begun to use the Tongu app download to gain access to paid versions of App Store apps without having to pay anything. From what we are aware, this app has been designed by Chinese developers and bypasses Apple’s security methods to create free versions of apps that you would usually pay a small fee for.

It sounds very suspicious indeed and we have already seen feedback gathered from consumers who are unsure of the legality of it. You can view an existing Apple board discussion here on the Tongbu app, while there’s another debate here from some users who have begun to use Tongbu without feeling guilty.

A new headache for Apple..

A new headache for Apple..

It goes without saying that any app that gives you paid iOS apps for free, is a risky business. We’re also willing to bet that Apple are now racing against the clock to prevent the use of the Tongu app for iPad and iPhone before the iOS 7.1 release date.

If you want our recommendation, you may want to be careful before attempting to use this app. If you have already installed the Tongbu app – give us your thoughts below.

    Works for me. Downside – after getting official app updates from AppStore, some tongbu apps crash on load. To fix you must connect to the tongbu assistant and ‘fix genuine app’. All works after. Also, not all apps are available on tongbu (pinnical video editor for one). Tongbu does direct you to the App Store in those cases. I know no Chinese. The app is easy enough to figure and the assistant is mostly English. Best part – no jailbreak.
