A lot of people have been asking me what happened to the Trapster app since it is no longer found in the App Catalog. Those familiar with Apple and their bogus app approval process may be thinking its Palm but in all actuality it had nothing to do with them.
It turns out that Trapster was not as ready for commercial use as they had originally thought. On Trapster’s web page they have given the following notice:
“Important announcement: The webOS app that was previously posted has some serious issues that did not show up until a large number of users tried to use the app simultaneously. We were forced to shut off the app. We have already fixed the problem, but some additional issues were uncovered in testing. We hope to have an update posted this week. We are very sorry about the trouble. Thank you for your patience.”
The Trapster guys really seem to be on the problems that the app is experiencing and work hard to fix any future problems that may arise in a very timely manor. We have yet to test out Trapster for webOS but I personally enjoyed the iPhone version of the application a few months back. We can’t wait to get out there and test this one out for ourselves!
