A bug in Apple’s latest App Store update – bringing the ‘Purchased’ functionality allowing you to download apps you’ve bought but aren’t on the current device – has re-released all Apps which have been pulled by developers.
Apps which have been pulled can be downloaded by going to your purchased history and finding the app in question – you can even go in to view the description and screen shots which is an interesting insight to how Apple keep the App listings. You can also share the app but attempting to access it from anywhere other than the Purchased screen will result in a cannot connect to app store.
Note: the iCarCheck app was deleted from one account and remade on another for legal reasons. Both are now available.
Only the new iCarCheck is available in the store:
Past (pulled) version appears in the ‘Purchased’ list:
We can view the description:
Fortunately… still not available through the standard path!
So – there you have it, get any old pulled Apps that you’d like quickly as they are going to HAVE to fix this!
Let's talk about it.
Head on over to Twitter and let's talk more.
