    first post i know, so im sorry fi this is old news and me being stupid.

    but i have been reading some of the post. wanted to buy virtual villagers after looking at how people like it. but i cant find it on the itunes store anymore.

    i tried searching for it in itunes. and also tried to get a link to appshopper.

    any news on it?


    hope you can help.
     
  2. You're right- it's certainly not in the UK store. Wonder what's happened there.

    Sometimes when apps get updated they disappear from the store temporarily.

    This has happened with Smack Boxing also, dev there says in contacting Apple (multiple times,various channels) Apple finally admitted there was a bug on their end and when Full Control Aps submitted an update(a month ago) it exposed this bug. Smack has been non-existant since Thomas Lund told me that Apple has asked him to re-submit game then update. Shitty for devs and consumers.
     
  8. really hoping it's just an update :[

    I think it's caught in limbo, in space.

    The link from Vivendi Games Mobile is still active.

    I erased it to make room for other apps... I just tried to re-load it. NOT FOUND. WHAT? I paid $7.99. I want it back. What's the procedure now?

    H E LLLLP.:eek:

    You removed the app from your iTunes as well to make room off your device?

    Well, in essence your theory was right.
    I guess in practice....

    Ok. Put it on anything, just don't delete them off your computer. Some disappear and reappear, and Songbird Remote won't download now, so you don't deserve to not have it, but this should serve as a lesson. Provide a receipt, and Vivendi should give you another copy.

    It's not in the Canadian Store...
    I remember this happening to a lot of apps - it's probably gone temporarily.
     
  15. way to scare the crap out of people with your buggy itunes system, apple
     
  16. It's a good way to get rid of reviews on appstore. Seen it happen a few times before. Just yank app then reupload it.

    It shouldn't get rid of reviews. It's not coming back out as a new app...just an updated version

    It's still missing from the app store. Maybe it's gone for good.

    I sent a support msg to the the developer, same a Crash B. Vivendi Games Mobile.

    No reply.

    Something is up. I think there is a trademark issue with the name right now.

    I did find it backed-up on my MacBook Air. I'll re-install it tomorrow.

    Wonder what is really up?
    :rolleyes:

    Hi there,

    There have been some major problems in the app store that for sure. We have had problems with both our games - and still have with Smack Boxing. We as well as others we know have been requested to re-upload binaries as they somehow got lost/corrupted/missing or something in their system.

    But hang in tight - we devs cant do anything, but Apple is slowly getting through the backlog it seems.

    /Thomas
