Shame, Apple, shame.

But what did you mean by teletext? Lol

The part about Apple wanting to make "app discovery" solely an Apple thing I really hope is not going to happen. Using their own AppStore app to actually browse and look around the AppStore is a PITA.

Hell they don't update it like appshopper.apple updates when they feel like it.

Dangit, I came in here hoping for a Kirosoft game and get hit by sad news.

Keeping my adds-removed AppShopper on forever (would have anyway.)

It's in my "Productivity" folder.

LOL


indeed, a sad situation. I can't load the most popular titles data for a few hours now on AppShopper, don't know if it is related or if is temporary or not. Anyone else experiencing this?

I'll have to delete it eventually. I don't know why, but it grows in filesize over time (the data that is); I delete it when it ends up between 300-500 Megs.

i think that this is a problem on your end because i've had appshopper installed for over a year now and it's only 41MBs.
