    Unfortunately Appshopper is super broken right now, so I'm not able to add this or any other new games at the moment. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

    In regards to the message about the US app store, that was originally meant for when people make threads for games that are in soft launch in countries other than the US. Since TA and Appshopper only pulls info from the US app store, the idea was that it would be less confusing on why all the appinfo isn't showing up in a soft launch thread. However since Appshopper is having issues, now that same message is showing up even if a game is out in the US. Hopefully once Appshopper is fixed everything will go back to normal.

    JUST AS A HEAD'S UP TO ANYONE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH APPINFO:

    We've adjusted things so the appinfo on our forums no longer relies on Appshopper, instead it uses the iTunes links posted in a game thread to directly pull the relevant info from the App Store. Currently it should automatically scan for new iTunes links about every 4 hours, so if you post a thread and the appinfo isn't working just kick back and wait for a while.

    If it's been more than 4 hours and your appinfo still isn't working (insert Viagra joke here) then feel free to PM me or post in this thread and I'll see what I can do.

    Thanks!

    Hello Boardumb,

    Our app Skater-Let's skate is shown in App Shopper, but when I put the link in the thread, it says:

    App info is currently processing and/or the app is not yet fully available for sale on the US App Store.

    Can you help me check it? Thanks in advance

    Ever since the forum was updated to the new design, appinfo has been showing the app description as a wall of text, with no formatting.

    I have stopped using it because of this, and instead put a link to the app directly in my posts.

    I would prefer to use appinfo tho. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Just use appinfo anyway, it's necessary for a number of reasons. I can see about getting the formatting fixed but couldn't say when or if it ever will be. What Nyanpass seems to do is copy/paste the app description with correct formatting from the app preview page in the web browser and then post it as the second post of a thread. Not an elegant solution but it works.
