What happened to the Appshopper app?

Ever since the big update to AS a few mos ago, the app has seriously declined in value. The TA app no longer links to it (though maybe that's an issue with the TA app?) and the AS stream no longer shows all the newest releases - it seems to be loosely based on what friends you're following?

I keep waiting/hoping these will get fixed, but it's been months now. Anyone know if they will? I so miss being able to link from a game I find on TA to AS to add it to my list without having to do a search. And the AS database doesn't even seem to be getting updated quickly either - just tried searching for 2k Drive and COD: strike team, and neither of them came up.

I believe you have to follow the AS person thing to get the latest updates and not just friend stuff. I don't remember exactly how it worked because I quickly switched back to the original version of the app. The new one is weird, but I guess by necessity.

It was replaced by Appshopper Social, which totally sucks. At least there is the awesome TA app and the equally awesome AppZapp.

Yay, they finally updated the TA app to connect with Appshopper. Happy once again.

Can someone explain the benefits of using TA/AP apps?

Customized UI for the small screen and being able to go directly from a game's description page in TA to AS to save it to your list.
