Could this be because of Apple's discontinuation of iAd? After June 30th, developers will no longer have access to this feature (it's been a present feature for Apple apps since 2010).

There's also a requirement as of June 1st that requires all apps to use IPv6. I'm not a developer but given that IPv4 has been around since forever, could the adoption of the new IPv6 be causing a lot of developers to not get their software accepted by the Apple monitors?

Normally we get at least a half dozen releases each day but over the past week we've seen maybe three or four releases. Is this just a weird funk?

Apparently Apple was waiting to release all the games stored on their servers for the last week, and release them all at once, in a single day.

1,416 games released in the last 7 hours... (And counting)

Good luck, TA!

I hope some of the gems that got buried in the middle don't get buried alive and have a fighting chance.
