Haha.. Apple has pretty much done whatever it wants. Since I bought Apple stuff the past few years, I've accepted that whether I agree with them or not.

This is the epitome of the iSheep phenomenon - take whatever Apple feeds you with no question. Seriously, anyone with this attitude has to change and empower themselves to know that there is life beyond Apple if you so please.

This is certainly disappointing, but not entirely unjustified. While the Appshopper app did have features that the default App Store app doesn't have, it is essentially another interface for the app store. Hopefully it can be changed so that it gets around the limitations somehow (basically removing any possible confusion with, or similarity to the official app store).

This is also my most used app. It's nice to be ble to have a wish list and then be notified when the price comes down, or to keep track of what apps I've bought, find new ones, etc...
If anything it generates MORE income for apple.
I would expect that the other apps would have the same problem with apples rules like appzapp.

Yea, I had it for a bit (still on my netbook tho) but deleted it forever ago. It works great but I just didn't use it. I still hope TA does an article about it though.

I just hope that app will continue to work and not have any other issues (to those who have it already of course). This is the first and last app I use everyday, and saved me a lot of dollars.

There is always the web version, but the convenience of the app make it irreplaceable.

Apple rejected appshoppers latest update twice then removed the app from the store completely. It was going to be updated for the ios 5 screen.

Apple starting to really piss me off this year. iOS 6 is a crap update. Basically the windows vista of iOS updates. The App store is so slow on anything other than the iphone 5 or ipad 4. But everyone has to experience that stupid new search function that only shows 1 card at a time and you have to horizontal scroll. It slow and a poor design choice. I used to always be looking around the appstore prior to iOS 6.

Hopefully appshopper app will continue to work. Obviously its great to keep a wishlist and find deals. I mostly like to use it to keep informed of app updates. I can't keep every app on my device and I don't want them all installed on itunes. So using appshopper is a great to be notified of when your apps get updated otherwise I wouldn't know and its often made me redownload apps again due to a new update that added some cool features etc.

Hopefully appshopper can come up with a way which doesn't violate apples stupid guidelines.

If Apple put decent Wishlist functionality into the App Store (mark something to buy later or at a price drop, sync this to your account, and notify you when a price goes down), we wouldn't need AppShopper.

I guess one could argue that apps and services like AppShopper make people wait for sales instead of impulse shopping -- but you could also argue that many people will buy stuff on sale that they would not touch at full price.

I use the website more than the app anyway, but it always sucks when something useful gets pulled from the store.

I think it's important to remember - and becoming more evident this year than ever - that Apple, Google, Microsoft, Samsung etc are not your friends and are only interested in taking your money.

I've been guilty of buying into the Microsoft are bad/Apple are good illusion and I think a lot of people are wary if criticising them but If you're not happy with them send them feedback and complain. If there's one thing Apple hate it's an unhappy customer with a credit card.
