Due to the cost of the service, and the inactivity of the JB community, there are few services will be shut down. 

 

1. IC file host will be closed from next week.

 

Existing files will not be affected, new file upload will be disabled.

 

Please use filepup.net and sendspace.com onwards. And filepup.net links will be hidden on the website.

 

2. AppCake 5 will be closed from next month.

 

Please use AppCake 6 onwards. We will keep fixing the bugs in AC6.
 

Thanks

A lot of users are asking why AC5 is discontinued.

 

The reason is simple, it costs $5000 a month to pay the server it runs on, and the download bandwidth you were enjoying. And we can no longer afford that.

 

If anyone is thinking of maybe we should raise a donation or whatever form to collect funds to keep it?

 

We had a Patron page: https://www.patreon.com/iphonecake

We set a goal of $50 a month, yet only get $13 right now. So tell me about it.

 

Anyway, use AC 4 or 6. Or website. You have plenty of choices.
