More dead apps:
Comic Reader Mobi (Ty Landerscaper)
Scratch (Corporate Smalltalk Consulting Ltd)
Inquisitor: Simple Web Search + News Search (Yahoo!)
...now halfway down my list, and everything remaining has been updated in the past 6 weeks. Haven't updated apps because no new updates have appeared since I started the purging project.
The Tangram Puzzle Pro is fine, and still available. It was the Holiday Edition of Tangram Puzzle Pro that is no longer available.
Glad to see this is working for most people. Unfortunately, I got the error again today. I guess I'll go through all my apps again and check to see if there is one that became unavailable in the last day. I'll post back with my findings. Otherwise, we may need to keep investigating this issue, it'd be nice if someone at Apple could maybe take a look. (hint, hint, Apple overlords!!!)
Same problem folks! I think this problem has been a constant since updating to iTunes 9.2 on Snow Leopard 10.6.4.
As you all say, the main way seems to be have to click 'Download All Free Updates' a second time.
Pretty annoying since I check for updates for my apps daily, with updates coming thick and fast to incorporate iOS4 features like multitasking and background audio
Please fix this Apple!
PS Something to listen to while clicking away in iTunes; free house music mixes at:
Out of my 303 applications, I removed the following apps and now the problem seems to be resolved.
Blocked (Joel Rosenberg)
ElasticPod (Eugene Marinelli)
Elevens Balls (Supportware)
Halloween Memory Match Game (ObjectGraph LLC)
NetShare (Nullriver, Inc.)
Night Lights (tophervoss)
Papaya Premium (PapayaMobile Inc.)
WiFiFoFum (WiFi Scanner) (Aspecto Software)
WifiTrak (Find FREE WiFi) (Bitrino, Inc)
Thanks all for your investigations. I too have had this irritating message since .... something changed and I'm pretty sure that that something was iTunes 9.2 and/or 10.6.4
Apple's suggested solution of deleting Plists, removing iTunes and downloading again is unacceptable. I'm sure I have some outdated apps but whether I want to remove them is another matter if I've paid for them. I suppose I can uncheck them so they aren't synced to my iPod/iPad.
Anyway, come on Apple, please get this sorted out soon as we should not have to be removing paid apps just because your software has changed.
A discussion just opened up on reddit.com about this issue, so perhaps it is reaching critical mass. One can hope. A reader offered this link which shows, unfortunately, that this problem predates both 10.6.4 and iTunes 9.2, but it offers a new way of deleting/re-adding apps so that you don't lose your personal data that's already on your iPhone.
Here's the helpful link:
And here's the discussion on Reddit:
I've found that in list view, adding "Date Added" and "Date Modified" and then finding ones which haven't ben modified in some time lessens the search pain. I've found 1 no longer available - the remarkably handy and paid for 'Trains' app which I use all the time. I can't find a replacement that's so elegantly simple at the moment - I may have to write it!
Same problem here and I am absolutely NOT going to resolve the issue with the workaround of erasing apps no longer in the store. I have tons of apps and aside from combing through them I like seeing all my apps in iTunes even ones not on my device just so I know what I have if I want it back later for whatever reason. I should not have to erase apps to get rid of an erroneous error message.
Apple, start fixing this crap. Get it together over there!
I am getting this same exact error. I tried refreshing iTunes with my account information (i.e. I removed my account from it and re-added it) and it did not do anything.
This is incredibly frustrating considering that the "Download All Free Updates" button worked on earlier versions of iTunes. I am really hoping they correct this.
