Default 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.

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.
