Apple Leaks Approved iPad Apps?
Several iPad apps were found listed on the web-based version of iTunes.
PadGadget claims that Apple had approved and listed various iPad apps in the App Store. The discovery was uncovered while browsing through the web-based preview version of the App Store, as the "standard" iTunes browser will not list iPad apps. Unfortunately, those iPad items have since disappeared from Apple's website.
The apps in question were marked with an "HD" extension, apparently a common label for developers in order for them to distinguish the iPad versions from the rest of the App Store library (although some are using XL too). Surprisingly the list included various games including Worms HD and NBA Hotshot HD.
PadGadget provided the following list, stating that these were just "some" that were uncovered:
- Ammoin HD
- Azkend HD
- Flight Control HD
- Grind HD
- HD Recovery
- Labyrinth 2 HD
- Numba HD
- Plants vs. Zombie HD
- Sparkle HD
Although the listings provided a link to each app, clicking visitors only received an error in return, saying that the item is not currently available in the US store. Now it doesn't seem to matter-- the HD-labeled items have thus disappeared. Whether it was slip-up or a sinister way of drumming up more iPad coverage, at least iPad fans can get an idea of what they can purchase next week. Tease.
