Earlier today, we submitted v1.1 of Notespark to the iTunes store, using iTunes Connect, which is the web UI that application authors use to access the App Store.
Apple is the design expert, right? So this UI has got to be, like, awesome, right?
Now take a look at this screen.
What do you think happens when you follow these steps:
* click on “edit information” underneath the 1.1 version of Notespark
* set the “availability date” to 1/29/2009
A) It sets the availability date of version 1.1 to 1/29/2009
B) It sets the availability date of BOTH version 1.0 and 1.1 to 1/29/2009
If you guessed (B), you are way smarter than I am. And because 1/29/2009 is in the future, it immediately removed version 1.0 from the iTunes App Store. ARRGGHHHH!!!! Setting the date back didn’t seem to help any.
Let’s just hope the app comes back tomorrow.
[Late update] Yes, the app is back. Whew!
