IAP is very seamless with StoreKit these days. it actually takes longer to set up the products in iTunes Connect than to implement the store :)
If you do plan on implementing receipt validation, well you do need to spin up a server and put a plain PHP script that validates with Apple whatever receipt binary you feed it.

But since jailbreaking is not a thing anymore, you can bypass this step :)

That's good to hear. I heard from another developer friend who said his company had a right pain with implementing IAP. The extra server validation stuff (from the glance I took at it so far) did look a bit scary. My experience with networks and servers mainly involves uploading the odd file and viewing webpages!

Is jailbreaking not a thing now? I'm way out of touch with that too - I rooted my Android device so I could use it for general experimentation, but I've always kept my iOS devices legit as they're basically my 'professional' dev hardware.

Jailbreaking very much seems a thing of the past now yes, especially seeing iOS gives one no choice but to update to the latest version now, at any opportunity.

Annoying? Yes, but in reality when we are already paying next to zilch for every new app that comes along, jailbreaking as well as the possibility of a few nice cracks here and there on free downloads is too much of a turn-off for many a developer.

Then there is the corporate sector, who Apple want so badly, and also of course the banks. My iPhone 5 won't run any banking app at all, because the previous fuckwit owner went and jailbroke it, then didn't apply the original jailbreak to the phone before he/she sold it to CEX (that's 'KECKS', as in underpants, not 'SEX' as they'd prefer you read it at!)

Well they probably validated the receipt by unpacking / decrypting the binary receipt file. Which is a kick in the nuts.

Apple offers a JSON endpoint where you pass the receipt and a key and you get back a JSON response with the purchase info.
You can theoretically do it from the iOS device itself, but of course it's not secure. If someone is sniffing your HTTPS traffic... well.. you're busted:)

Anyways. It's probably a day of work at most.

I erroneously think that about most tasks I start :)

Getting up is a day's work at most. :D

If not, there's always tomorrow.

Until and by 3pm you're already on your 8th cup of coffee... And we all know what happens to spiders when spinning their webs after being injected with caffeine?

Jailbreaking is very much a thing, but it has become a much more tight-knit community. There hasn't been a public untethered jailbreak since iOS9 (that means, you need to actively run the exploit chain every time you reboot your iDevice) and the wait for a stable jailbreak for news iOS versions has been much longer than it used to. For info on what you can do with your jailbroken devices, go here: https://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/wiki/escapeplan
Personally, I really love activator, my firewall and the ability to lock just certain apps and folders, instead of my whole phone (mostly because: kids). The ability to compile stuff right on your phone as well as running a VNC server on it and using your phone from your 'puter is very handy.

Also pirating is still a thing (and will be), but please Matt, neglect these people and don't invest time in countering them besides the most basic measures. People using warez either can't afford to pay you (yet) or won't pay you out of principle; they're definitely not your target group. It's better to view them as free marketing. :)

Good to hear we are reaching the end. I’ve recently bought a Novation Circuit to keep me occupied until NS2, I had a moment of weakness on eBay when I saw the Bass Station 2, and started pining for my long dead BS1. Still getting to grips with it, but I like the physical tweaking of knobs. I like the fact you can download patches for it, there’s a few Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada patches around that I will get
I will more than likely use both in a “live” /jam set up once I finish my studio.......

So they can afford an iPhone or iPad, but not apps that make it worth having those devices?
People who won't pay out of principle are called thieves. They are not pirates. Do they steal iPhone too? What ever happened to hustling up a few extra hours of work and saving up for something you want?

+another on what Slam-Cut said.

Actually:

'It's better to view them as free marketing. :)'

No, better to view them as self-entitled cunts.
