Apple Removes AppShopper From App Store

Posted Dec 18, 2012

Apple has removed the AppShopper app from the Apple App Store.  Arnold Kim, the developer behind the app, has confirmed the removal.  Apple added a rule to their terms of service back in September that stated:  “Apps that display Apps other than your own for purchase or promotion in a manner similar to or confusing with the App Store will be rejected.”  AppShopper essentially keeps track of price drops on mobile applications and reports when apps have been updated.  Personally I think AppShopper is doing Apple a favor since iTunes does a terrible job promoting apps these days that are not related to birds that are angry.
