A Quick Update on iPhone 5 Support in the Official AppShopper App

by Marianne Schultz

The iPhone 5 has been out for a little over a month now and developers have been updating their apps to add compatibility with this device’s larger screen ever since. We here at AppShopper are also trying to update our own official app but it’s taking a little more time than expected due to some changes in Apple’s app approval guidelines.

We don’t have a timeframe yet on when this update will be released, but we wanted you to be aware that we are working on it. I personally know how disappointing it can be to have a favorite app that doesn’t quite take advantage of the glorious 4-inch display of the iPhone 5 and I’m right there with you. As soon as we have more details on the timing to share, you’ll be the first to know.

In the meantime, the official AppShopper app still works to show you the latest price drops and updates and lets you add and remove apps from your Wish List despite this, so do get it if you haven’t already. The official app of our sister site, TouchArcade, which focuses on iOS games exclusively has gotten the iPhone 5 treatment already and is a great resource if you want to stay on top of the best and hottest iPhone and iPad games, so get that too if you haven’t already.

    Appzapp has released its iPhone 5 update. So I think it won’t be long before you release the update. :)

    Wow, they are being ridiculously slow to update this app. I wish I could find a better one.

    Well, apple removed it completely now. Are you working on getting it back or is it hopeless?
