All AppStore RSS feed are gone?

hi there

I noticed that starting with 26-september all of the different unofficial rss feeds for new apps on the store seem to be broken. They do no longer show new apps. Do you know of one feed which still works?

If not, we now lost every possibility to find new apps and Apple completely broke everything.

Bye,
Oliver

Thanks

I used this one, which seems to be gone: http://webobjects.mdimension.com/iPhoneApps.rss

And many other sites seem to use this as a basis as well.

Yes I used a couple from Pinchmedia (one for new apps, another for updated) which don't work anymore either.

Ok- here are some feeds that are working-

NEW pinchmedia ones-

AppShoppers site and feed-

Address Not Found

Firefox can't find the server at appshopper.com.

Could the site be down?

Let see...

* Apptism, is stalled.
* Those PinchMedia feeds, also stalled.
* Appshopper, server not found for me.
* TouchArcade, new games page empty.

Hm, it doesn't seem like the problem would be the weekend changes to the AppStore since the TouchArcade page was working yesterday. Is Apple doing more changes? Or are they blocking somehow? Aha, upon a bit of investigation with wget, it seems Apple is no longer serving the the unencripted XML content from non-iTunes browsers, AFAICT.

The newest-games and AppShopper are both having issues due to some widespread DNS problems.

I fixed the TouchArcade newest games page. AppShopper should be up when the DNS stuff is fixed.
