Touch Arcade - Broken Links to the iTunes App Store

Hi!

I just posted up about "Secret Admirer"
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?p=1567958

...but the links to the iTunes App Store don't seem to be working...
http://itunes.apple.com/app/secret-admirer/id404684126

It's not just the appinfo tag, as regular HTML links don't work either. It says, that my app is not available. Yet... it is available. I think the addition of the affiliate tracking code might be messed up. If that code at the end of the URL is removed, the link works fine.

Interesting... it looks like that "?mt=8" part of the link is necessary.

Yeah, the "mt=8" is essential in iOS (but not on the desktop) for App Store links. They also use mt=12 for the Mac App Store...
