Today was an exciting time for us. We saw our app Amps & Cabs™ appear in the “New and Noteworthy” section of the iTunes App Store in both the US and Canada. Our sales jumped way up and website traffic increased tremendously. We were happy to see our young little app doing so well. Everything was bright and happy!
While word continued to spread about Amps & Cabs™, we turned our noses to the grind stone and toiled away on the final details of an Amps & Cabs™ v0.2 update. We uploaded the new meta data, touched up images, changed version details, and set the release date for the update a few days into the future. Then we went out for some wings.
At dinner we were notified that Amps & Cabs™ could no longer be found on the App Store. Searches returned empty and our prominent spot on the iTunes App Store front page seemed to have vanished. Suddenly, our delicious meal didn’t seem so delicious. We hurried back to find out what happened.
It turns out that we screwed up.
We made an honest mistake. Apparently, when we uploaded the update to Amps & Cabs™ and set the release date for some time in the future, it affected not only the updated version, but the version currently available on the App Store. We quickly changed the availability date back to today and are just waiting for Amps & Cabs™ to pop back up on the App Store. Hopefully we’ll see it back online soon.
As for those of you that downloaded Amps & Cabs™ earlier in the day, we hope you are enjoying the app. Tell us your thoughts and send your feature requests to us via our Feedback page. We look forward to hearing from you.
It appears we’re back in the App Store and on the front page. PHEWW! Clicking on the app still doesn’t work, but should be very shortly. (9:35PM EST)
We’re back online. Amps & Cabs™ is available again worldwide. (9:50PM EST)
