What happened to Appshopper?

Not the app, the website. "No apps are found." It's been like this all day...

I've been wondering the same thing. Any admins around who know what's going on?

Appshopper’s ability to track updates is super important to me. I’d happily pay a monthly fee for that service. There’s literally no other way to see what old Apps are newly updated for 64-bit and/or iPhone X now that Apple has cleverly removed the ability to download Apps within iTunes. It’s like they expect us to load everything we’ve ever purchased onto our devices.

I assume that this must be related to the current problems on the App, which I'm still using under iOS 10. For the past few days, if I open the App, it says "connection error" implying that the servers are down.

I assume that the Appshopper website must use the same servers as the App.

I hope Apple isn't behind this when I saw this issue in the morning I got panicked and I made every internet shortcuts for the apps on My Apps and Wishlist in a hurry

the premium gamers and the freemium gamers in the mobile game world despise one another. did you notice they never sit in sight of each other? the fools. what good comes of childish rivalries? we are all gamers here

All I see when I try to access the Appshopper website is a message, "no matching apps were found.

This is happening to me too. I'm using iOS10.3 and and the old version of AppShopper. It, and the TA app are the only two apps that are doing this. Every other app works just fine. At least I know now t'm not the only one doing this

Still down :-(

I noticed this yesterday morning, too. I thought it might have been Apple making a change to their Affiliate API. I'm hoping AppShopper isn't gone for good. I wish they'd post a status message on their main page, just to keep folks in the loop.
