Version 1.0.1 of our own official app, AppShopper Social, has just hit the App Store. This update includes fixes for sharing via Facebook and email, a crashing issue for iPad users running iOS 5, performance issues for iPhone 4 users, and other bug fixes.
AppShopper Social first debuted in the App Store in April after Apple had removed the original AppShopper app last year due to a conflict with some new App Store rules. The release of this 1.0.1 update to fix some glaring problems was delayed thanks to some issues out of our control but we hope that those are behind us now and look forward to releasing future updates with additional fixes and new features more regularly in the future.
Still on our list is a universal version to add iPad compatibility. Also, we still plan to add the ability to view your friends’ lists and easier methods to discover new friends and their recommended apps.
Of course, AppShopper Social is still free to download and will automatically notify you when apps on your Wish List go on sale (see this article for an overview of how to use our Wish List feature). Following the user appshopper will show you the most popular apps among our users as well as apps featured on our blog.
(If you’re looking for new friends, my AppShopper user name is Marianne and the site’s founder’s user name is arn. Our sister sites are under the user names macrumors and toucharcade.)
If you like AppShopper, please recommend AppShopper Social to your friends to help support future updates and new features.
