Default What happened to App shopper?

Any updates on this? It was pulled awhile ago and haven't heard anything.

I'm sure that app made apple a lot of money. Sigh. I miss it.

Pretty sure Apple were the ones that pulled it down for being to close to the actual AppStore (could be wrong though)

From what I understand it was pulled by Apple but the developers intends to correct the problems with it and re-release it once they are done addressing all the issues Apple had with it. Like mentioned, it had something to do with the similarities to the AppStore, or some perceived infringement upon it in the way it gather, accessed or handled the information from my understanding, though the details seem fuzzy. I still have the app and it still works, as well as the site being alive and well.

As for alternatives, I find AppZapp is pretty decent of the available app for aggregate iOS app tracking and price watching IMO... Sadly, I find that aside from AppShopper and AppZapp, the rest kind of suck...

You guys know that they still have a website that is identical in functionality to the app, right?

Sure, but it's a pain in the ass to view on ios. Then again, Appshopper always has had one MAJOR flaw...you can't filter out any developers.
