I was just taking a peek over at the new design for our sister site AppShopper, which has a great new responsive design that works across a number of screen sizes and resolutions. It's great, check it out. But while exploring it, I saw a few great sales and freebies from recent days, and felt like pointing out a few. Skullduggery [$2.99] is available for 40% off after its first big update, Game Bakers' Squids [$3.99] games are free, both Gentlemen...Ricochet! [$0.99] games can be had for free, Infinity Blade 3 [$6.99] is on a deep discount, and more. Here's a bunch of the discounts worth nabbing:

    I was just over there to speculate on when we might get KOTOR 2, and wow, the site looks ... different. Not sure what I think of the font choices, but that could just be the shock of the newness. It's definitely a bold change.

    Shout out to Galactic Nemesis! What an awesome arcade shooter! Fans of Galaga will rejoice.

      You read my mind! Also, Helix is a really unique high-scoring game. Cool graphics and great soundtrack.

    Now downloading: A bunch of free stuff

    I am just going to give 'em all a shot, atleast one of them has to be great 😉

    Meanwhile, the Appshopper app languishes in the AppStore, abandoned for nearly two years and crying for iPad support and iPhone 6/6+

      It's a victim of Apple's policy against these types of apps.

      Apple removed the older better (and universal) AppShopper app. IIRC they haven't updated the AppShopper Social app because it could make Apple notice and then ban that app too.

      It's a shame.

      Apple won't let us update AppShopper app anymore

        Argh. Glad I have both installed still. I hope they'll continue to just work, since I rely on them still.

      • dancj

        For some reason the search is broken on the original app - but it still works in AppShopper Social.

  • CookingPie

    The appshopper site looks nice BUT the info that I go there for (updates and price drops) is harder to read and extract.
    Previously I could see at a glance whether an app just got an update or price change but now it is less clear.
    Please tell them to fix it!

    • http://normalkid.com Arnold Kim

      we're making tweaks. If you have specific issues with readability, let me know arn@normalkid.com

      • CookingPie

        Great - I've got my update and price-drop bubbles back, thanks for tweaking.

      • vicsark

        I can't connect my readability account in the TA app since forever, not sure it's a specific bug. Annoying though.

  • philsmtx

    I use appshopper daily... i hope they didnt make any changes other than in appearance..

  • HarryWarden

    How is AppZapp allowed to exist in its current form if AppShopper isn't?

    • dancj

      I think AppZapp is stuck in the same limbo.

      • Arnoud

        AppZapp was last updated 2 Mar 2015. Doesn’t seem like they’re stuck in the same limbo. I wonder why Apple let’s them continue to update but not AppShopper 🙁

      • Adan

        They are just afraid to submit an update. Pathetic.

      • http://toucharcade.com Eli Hodapp

        How about this, you finance the cost of the update. If it gets approved, we'll pay you back. If it doesn't get approved, you're out the five figure development budget it's going to take to get the app updated. Are you willing to take that gamble?

      • Adan

        Are you just saying you haven't updated the app? Do you want it financed? Go to kickstarter. You can tell yourself all the excuses you want, at the end of the they you can't be bothered.

      • http://toucharcade.com Eli Hodapp

        The problem is Apple is ridiculously unpredictable when it comes to things like this. We've had updates rejected, then approved, for seemingly no reason at all. Crossing your fingers and hoping for the best isn't the greatest way to run a business, so we've just kind of moved on.

  • Collin

    I kept the old universal app and check it daily. I'm glad that it's still working as of OS 8.2.

    Is the view from the main page of the previous site still available? All I see now are my wishlist, my owned apps and the bestsellers chart. The main page showing "popular" updates, price changes and new additions was the main reason I visited AppShopper.

  • cthibault

    Wow, never knew the app wasn't getting updated because of Apple. That explains it. What a shame. It's a great App that I check daily. New site looks great though!
