What is HackApp?

HackApp is a web based service designed for mobile apps' static security analysis. It identifies critical and suspicious information in a bundle, such as:
  • Certificates and keys,
  • Authentication secrets,
  • License Control,
  • Compilation flaws.
What HackApp is not:
  • Tool for software piracy,
  • AntiVirus system.
The main goal is to find information disclosure, which can be used in attacks against app's users or vendor's infrastructure. 

How to use it ?
At first, you have to sign-in, using your Twitter or LinkedIn account:

Then you will see a dashboard - the home page for logged users:

- Here you can add apps by clicking button "Add app". If you want to get apps directly from iTunes, use link to the app's page, such as (Only free apps are supported). Or you can just upload a *.ipa bundle. 
- Then you click 'Analyse'. 
- HackApp will download and analyse your app. Usually it takes about 2-3 minutes.
- When the app changes status to 'Completed', you can open report by click on the app's name:
Here you can see basic app info (version, drm, etc), browse the bundle as a directory and get info about bugs:

That's it, all you need to know for start. If you will find any bugs in our's system you can always report it to our twitter:  @hackappcom

    The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.

    2. Thank's for report. I've got problems with encoding. I can't say for sure when we will be able to check this application, but have just implemented workaround, which handles such exceptions and allows to continue work with other apps.

  8. In today's world, creating an app is just a baby step. Analyzing the users' impact and re-defining the product is the major step for any application. Hackapp is the best in the cloud based performance analyzer.
