Version 1.2 of the official AppShopper app has been approved, adding push notifications for app updates and price changes. Push notifications join a list of updates the app received earlier today in version 1.1:
- Filtering capabilities for My Apps and Wish List
- Tell a Friend (email includes a link to the webpage for the app)
- Settings (app device compatibility filtering, notification options, and log in/out of your account) added
- Help section added
- Various optimizations and bug fixes
A minor issue made push notifications unavailable in version 1.1 released earlier today, which has been addressed in version 1.2.
In case you missed it, the AppShopper.com Importer is available and will import the complete list of apps you already own from iTunes on your computer to your AppShopper profile. AppShopper Importer is for the Mac only though a Windows version is in beta testing (if you have a Windows computer and want to help us test it, let us know) . You can download the Mac version of the application here. It will pull only the app names from your iTunes library and nothing else. The application will ask you to log in to your AppShopper account to get started. If you don’t already have an account, you can create one here (accounts are free).
At the the time of this post, the 1.2 update is still propagating through Apple’s servers and may not yet be available for all users. Reminder: Push notifications won’t work in 1.1.
