    I was wondering if you guys can bring back the TouchArcade App. Because I really loved it and I loved that you guys reviewed Paid Apps that have gone free every week. That was the best thing. Now I can't find it on the App Store. is it possible to get it back?

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the TA app now rests in peace. In a nutshell, what it did (basically presents something that even remotely resembles the App Store) is now problematic in Apple's eyes and they would never approve an update for it. I don't recall which iOS update broke functionality of the TA app, but yeah...it's been dead for a long while now and with TA's overall site refresh, even if it did come back (which, it won't), the changes in the forum and front page, etc. would require a maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassive overhaul, which certainly isn't worth the time or money that'll be needed to put into it.

    There, however, was talk a while ago about maybe introducing a web-based TouchArcade app, that would basically just be a shell that gives you the website and some basic push notification functionality according to wishlists and whatnot...but then again, did wishlists ever come back? I don't know. *shrugs* All I know is this hasn't been brought up since Eli left TA.

    Hope this helps.
