No price drops this week?

I noticed there hasn't been much activity at all on appshopper.com for apps going free.

I was just wondering if there was a price change/free lockout like they did back at Christmas, or if perhaps there is another reason no apps are going free right now?

No, I understand what he means. I had the same thing, and this is what I think I figured out: there's likely a glitch on app shopper. However, it's only for when you have it selected as "iphone" in popular/new. When you change it to all (which i did) you get the regular list. THis also explains why the site's list is working fine as well, since it uses all...(also-it tells you ipad only in 'all' so you don't purchase them accidentally)

Even on "all" not much is showing for me on AppShopper but I think it's because we just ended a holiday sale period on July 4th weekend so there's a lull.

I had error, but later on it worked fine and showed 10-20 new price drops!

I had to change my setting in app shopper from iPhone to all over the week end as with just iPhone selected nothing was updating but with all selected it's fine.

Working fine for me. I think it is more the fact that not many games are going on sale this week as lot's went on sale last week.
