    I know there are many people who favor the Atomic web browser over Safari mainly because it offers the ability to change the user agent. This means you can set the browser so that web sites think you are using non-mobile versions of Safari, various versions of InternetExplorer and Firefox. It also has tabbed browsing. Most would agree that it is the best 99¢ you can spend in the App Store.

    Apparently now we have to change that line to read, "WAS the best 99¢..."

    A member PM'd me and asked for the link to the Atomic browser. When I couldn't find it in the App Store, I went to their website and tried the link. It opened iTunes on my PC, but then I got this message --

    Anyone know what's going on with them?

    I think 5.1 is being rolled/updated. Probably caught iTunes during the upgrade.

    No worries - the best browser remains :).

    I read this morning that the Atomic Browser has been pulled from the App store. It was pulled for using private API's. The developer was told to fix this by Friday or it could be pulled, but the App was pulled on Tuesday. I use this browser all the time because of the many features it has that Safari is lacking. I have a question. Can Apple somehow stop my Atomic Browser from working on my iPad? It works just fine right now.

    Is there any type of insurance, if a bought app gets pulled of the AppStore due to reasons such as this? After all the user paid for a service which is not available anymore.

    The app was 99¢. If it quits working, consider a dollar lost and move on.

    Atomic was my all time greatest BUT I've fallin in love with Icab browser. It reminds me of atomic browser but only better. Loads up faster. I have all the best browsers: atomic, Full browser, Skyfire, icab, puffin, and iswfter. I'm truly impressed with the flash content playing on swifter. It's not as fancy as the others but does it's job.
    I really hope Atomic doesn't stop working, I always switch up browsers every now n then. Hopefully, they may be coming w/update to show flash content&sites.

    As with just about every company that makes things, Apple has the right to change the specifications of their product at any time without notice. Apps from 3rd party developers get dropped all the time from iTunes (for a variety of reasons), but so far, I do not know of any that have actually stopped working.
