    is anyone else having issues with the app store? When I view by release date the latest apps are dated Dec23rd. No new apps after that date. I have tried rebooting but still nothing new as of today.

    Could be that the Apple elves are having a rest after a busy Christmas and Boxing day.

    Excerpt:

    The reason for the sales (other than holiday cheer) is that at a certain point approaching Christmas and New Year’s in the U.S., Apple freezes the App Store. That means that for several days, the prices on the App Store are locked, as are its Top Charts. It’s those charts that are a really big deal to developers – when an app appears on the Top Paid charts, for example, they tend to do a whole lot of business. So dropping the price on an app to get it on the chart can earn developers a coveted spot for days once Apple freezes iTunes.
