How to do In-App purchase for free (iOS)?

Hi Guys,

Today, we are gonna learn how to get In-App purchases for free in any jailbroken iDevice by using this famous or I may say infamous tweak called LocalIAPStore.

Why a post on getting in app purchases for free?

TechGlobule by no means is supporting and will never support Piracy. LocalIAPStore is meant for fun purposes and making gameplay easier for various different apps.

How does the app works?

Freedom acts as an alternative wallet, featuring payments while in-app purchases in almost all the apps.

Who’s the developer? and List of Supported Apps

You can research a little bit about the developers behind Freedom on its official website. The nicknames of developers are ZonD80 and MadKite. You can follow ZonD80 on Twitter, if you know Russian.

LocalIAPStore has published a list of supported apps on their blog; although it is incomplete. You can also help in completing that list.

Will it support my device?

The app supports all jailbroken iDevices running iOS 6 to iOS 8.1. It worked fine on iPhone 4S (iOS 8.1.2) and iPhone 5 (iOS 7.1.2).

In which Repo will I find it?

It is available for free on the In-AppStore.com Cydia Repository in Cydia. Simply go to Sources > In-AppStore.com Cydia Repository > All Packages > LocalIAPStore > Install > Confirm and he tweak will be installed. If you are unsure how to install, see our post or YouTube video to get assistance regarding installations in Cydia. In-AppStore.com Cydia Repo – http://system.in-appstore.com/repo/

How to use it?

Method 1 (Standard Receipt). Follow these steps –
  • After installing the tweak, go to Settings > LocalIAPStore.
  • Enable the first option and disable “Generate custom receipts”.
  • Open any app featuring in-app purchase.
  • Try to buy something, a pop-up will be displayed asking for your Apple ID’s password. Tap Cancel.
  • {Optional step}. If the pop-up appears again and again, tap on Cancel only. Sometimes the pop-up appears up to 5 times. But saving a dollar is worth wasting a minute.
  • You are done. You will get whatever you tried to bought.
Method 2 (Custom Receipt). Follow these steps –
  • After installing the tweak, go to Settings > iTunes & App Store > Apple ID:abcd@efgh.com.
  • Tap on your Apple ID, a pop-up will be displayed with options, View Apple ID, Sign Out, iForgot, and Cancel. Choose Sign out.
  • Then go to Settings > LocalIAPStore. Enable both the options.
  • Open any app featuring in-app purchase.
  • Try to buy something, a pop-up will be displayed. Tap Buy, then on Apple ID pop-up, tap Cancel.
  • You are done. You will get whatever you tried to purchase.

Enjoy!! It works with an internet connection to work.

Note

It would not work for online apps. I mean it do requires internet to work but it can’t fake purchases with any online app.

It wouldn’t work with any jailbroken app, because jailbroken apps don’t depend on Apple ID for payment

That’s all folks.
