Dead MetaFilter Radio November 3, 2015 11:49 AM   Subscribe

So, I tried to share the MetaFilter Radio app with someone recently and found it was no longer in the App store. And I tried to run my MetaFilter Radio app and it was an utter failure. Are there plans to update this and continue to make it useful and fun, or was it a one-off project and is now dead?

I don't know of any plans to update the app, no. It was a one-off project as far as I know. I'm not sure why it's not in the app store anymore.

If you still have the app you can file a bug report. Click the Help icon in the lower right and then the Report a bug thing. That will compose an email to the app developer, our own scottandrew.

I still have the app and it's working fine for me. Sorry I don't have more information about it.

The sky above the port was the color of the Internet, tuned to Dead MetaFilter Radio: seriously lacking in blue.

When the developer does not renew their annual Developer Program subscription, their apps are delisted from the App Store. Apple will not remove them from your iOS device, though, and they should continue functioning normally for as long as whatever they need to run also continues to work.
