No more "Apple App of the Week"?

The last one was Cut the Rope. And next? It should have beeen announced since some hours…

It was always very generous (free for one week), and there were always pretty good games. Does anybody know how that sale was allocated with the devs? Did Apple pay something to them? Or was it enough to have the app on the store's frontpage for some days?

Anyway, it would be a bummer if this kind of sale would only be a summer event.

Edit: They just were a bit late this time. The next Apple App of the Week is Rhonna Designs:

I thiiiiink I remember reading somewhere that it doesn't work out that great for the devs unless you have IAP in your game.

Well they haven't even updated the App Store yet, so it think it is ethier a bug or someone got lazy at apple.

Maybe. It's due to be out between the 10-20th according to several sources.

I don't think it's been scrapped. It appears on the Friday, which is today.

While app of the week is awesome,it's always the same for me: i already own it or i really don't want it ^^.

Some beavers are hiding, some beavers are invisible, some are moving and some are just plain elusive and then there are the 'Beavers in Disguise'.

Actually this weeks free app is something called "Rhonna Designs" which is apparently another photo modifing app, it is on the app store now.
