You’ve likely read about the hack allowing users to pick up in-app purchases for free.
If you aren’t already using a secure method of validating in-app purchases then I’ve come across a handy free service for doing just that.
The service is known as Beeblex and as the homepage states:
Beeblex is a service that verifies In-App Purchase receipts against Apple’s App Store servers in a secure way. It uses strong cryptography and time-limited transactions to help prevent a malicious third party from sending your app “fake” IAP transactions that trick it into completing purchases without a corresponding payment.
Beeblex is perfect for apps that are completely self-contained, because it does not require you to purchase additional hardware or run a server. You simply add a small library to your project, write a few lines of code, and… that’s it! In most cases, you should be able to get up and running in just a few minutes.
You can find more about Beeblex on the homepage here.
If you’re using a service for push notifications you might want to check if they already provide a similar service.
