Just to make everyone aware, our CSTM iPhone app is no longer available on iTunes and currently we do not have plans to bring it back.
The app was old (it’s almost 2-years old) and it seemed fair it be removed although I didn’t see any notification from Apple this was going to happen. I could have just missed it though and mistakenly deleted it as advertising mail.
We are basically abandoning it for a couple reasons.
- I’m a stupid dummy girl who has neither the time nor the expertise to improve the very basic app.
- We do not own a Macintosh computer (required to submit apps to the app store). We previously got around this by making a hackintosh from a netbook but it was pretty unstable and while a fun project at the time, was a pain in the rear when it came to usability and I use the netbook weekly for the show.
- I let our Apple Developer license lapse. An easy enough fix to buy it again should I need it but given points one and two I decided to save the money.
We have also heard of some folks having issues with the Android version. This has always been a problem just given Android’s different models, versions etc but I suspect that for some newer phones, they are experiencing the same basic problem that our app is just out dated.
If the app is still working for you, great. Just don’t delete it as it is no longer available on the iTunes store to download. We are not removing support for those still able to use the app.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may bring our app users. We will remind you that www.casualstrolltomordor.com is mobile friendly and you can get most of the same functionality from the app just by browsing our site.
