After jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad on iOS 4.3.1 with Sn0wbreeze, PwnageTool or Redsn0w, you can install Installous on your iDevice to try free premium apps before making a final purchase from App Store. The apps you download and install from Installous are called cracked apps because their DRM is stripped using apps like Crackulous, CrackNShare, AppCrackr and some other cracking apps. To install and sync cracked apps with iTunes, you need AppSync for iOS 4.3.1 which automatically gets installed with Installous.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Hackulous source is now officially gone, so you won't be able to download AppSync and Installous from the repository anymore. As an alternative, you can use other Cydia repos to download AppSync and Installous from: (Best Cydia Repos 2011, Best Cydia Repos 2012, Best Cydia Repos 2013). Or better yet, you can try other Installous Alternatives.
