AlpineZone no longer available in the Apple App Store... WTF?

I needed to restore my iphone from iCloud backup today. Everything is in order except... AlpineZone. When i tap the app icon it shows, "loading..." for a few seconds then this message appears: "Unable to install 'AlpineZone' The app is no longer available in the App Store." FWIW, less than 2 weeks ago I restored the same phone from a backup and the AZ app did restore, so this is a recent change.

Nick or mod(s), can someone have a look at what's up?

Any word on this? I just bought a new iPhone and have the same issue as the OP. I’ve got it going on Tapatalk but I prefer the dedicated app.

I honestly prefer Tapatalk because it has a newer user interface.

I do other forums through Tapatalk. Ultimately, it requires more clicks to get to AZ, compared to the app. More clicks = bad.

I'm way late on this one but I will take a look. The app was supposed to be updated late last year but the developer fell off the face of the earth, so I'll check again, I believe it was still running but just using an older version. Thanks for letting me know.

As a relatively new user, I'd like to get the iPhone app...I can't find it in the Apple App Store. Any news (or advice)?

The developer I paid to update the Tapatalk app went AWOL. I also think Tapatalk changed their business model for the standalone app which we used to use. Tapatalk itself should still work just fine.

The newest version of the site I am working on will have a native mobile support (which vbulletin doesn't have!) so please stay tuned!
