    The AppsGoneFree app is no longer available in the App Store but should still be in your list of purchased apps, where it can be re-downloaded to your iPad. The app is still updated every day, there's been no interruption of service when I view the app on my iPad.

    Here's a screenshot from today. image.jpg

    Thanks for that, I didn't buy it, in fact can't remember if it was pre-installed, no, just remembered, someone gave a link on a forum and I picked it up from there. As there isn't a bin to rescue items on the ipad (as far as I know), it will have gone presumably. Clinging to hope you might be able to help over this, in fact, what would happen if you tried to email me the link, would it work ? and would you be prepared? please.

    The app wasn't available in the UK App Store, and even if you receive a link to it now, and you have an account in the US App Store, this is what you'll get:

    The app is no longer in the App Store so there's no link to send. Sending you the IPA file for the app is a form of piracy so is not possible. I'm afraid that you'll have to keep checking the App Store to see if a similar app appears.

    If you made a backup of your iPad before deleting the app, restoring your iPad with that backup is the only way to recover it for you.

    Thank you for that. Please don't think I was after what they call here "a hooky" link, because that's not the case at all. Now that I know that appsgonefree isn't available, I'll satisfy myself with AppZapp Pro and the App Store, however to establish latest free releases is less straight forward as you have to type "latest free ipad apps" every time.

    From the UK I've just been having a skype with the middle east, now chatting albeit typing with you in Canada seems amazing doesn't it.

    Modern technology does allow us to do some amazing things, doesn't it?

    I hope you can find something that works better for you than AppZapp Pro. The problem is that apps such as AppsGoneFree tend not to stick around in the App Store as Apple tends to pull such apps. If you find one, grab it quick.

    You can always use websites to find free apps. There are quite a few. Just google "iOS apps gone free" and find one you like. Once you've decided on the site you like best, use the action icon (box with an up arrow) and add the site to your Home Screen.

    Now you can go to the site whenever you want, almost like using an app.

    If you use an RSS reader, many of these site's have a feed. Another good way to keep track of new stuff.

    For instance, if you got the Feedly.com app (or use the website) you can search for feeds about "apps gone free". Once you add them to your reader you'll get new articles every day.

    RSS is a way for websites to give you updates about new articles without you having to visit the site. You subscribe to a feed for that site and receive either a summary or the full text of new articles (depending on what they decide to send). Most RSS readers organize your feeds so you can quickly scan through them, reading the ones you want, or go to the website for a closer look.

    Here's the Wikipedia article for a more complete and mostly incomprehensible explanation. :)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS

    But really, the best way to understand RSS is to download a decent app and subscribe to a few feeds.

    Feedly.com is the RSS service I use, but I prefer to use it with the Reeder app. Nothing wrong with the Feedly app. I just got used to using Reader before Feedly existed and didn't feel like changing my habits.
