Today, Filippo Biga released some interesting stats regarding Springtomize 2 For iOS 5, version 1.3 which was released less than 2 weeks ago. Springtomize 2 has received nearly 200,000 downloads, and approximately 1 out of 8 are running a tethered jailbreak in iOS 5.1...while the rest have stuck to a presumably untethered jailbreak in iOS 5.0.1.
The diversity of the hardware running Springtomize 2 is somewhat expected with nearly half of Springtomize 2 downloaders are using an iPhone 4. The iPhone 4S is in second with over one-fourth of the cydia tweak downloads. Surprisingly, the iPad combined with the iPad 2 is barely a blip on the pie chart with 1.44% and 7.05% of the downloads respectively.
One of the most shocking statistics, is the fact that only 8 out of 100 Springtomize 2 downloader actually paid the couple bucks for the developers effort. At 92% rate of piracy is not acceptable in my opinion...these developers work hard to put these tweaks together for the jailbreak community and provide updates and support.
Last year I spent about $5 - $10 per month buying Cydia tweaks to support the jailbreak community developers. The jailbreak community created a gesture keyboard idea for the iPad into SwipeSelection in Cydia within a day...and did it for FREE!
