Apparently the following error message is how Apple spells, "if you don't tithe us $100 per year, we won't allow your free app to continue to be downloaded at all." I had to pay them a hundred bucks to allow me to upload the thing in the first place, and apparently if you don't pay annually, they pull all your apps. You stay klassy, Apple.
As this is the only iPhone app that I've released so far, I'm trying to decide whether I give a shit. Leaning heavily toward "no".
I can't even tell where I look to see whether anyone has downloaded it in the last year. Presumably that's on some URL Apple won't show me without paying them $100 first.
I'm somewhat surprised that they didn't remotely delete it from the phones of everyone who had already downloaded it. That "feature" is probably coming soon.
Update: Comments disabled (and many deleted) because I'm profoundly uninterested in hearing more of the Apple fanboys' various theories about why The Great and Benevolent Jobs might have felt forced, forced into doing things this way. The answer is, "because they can." Or, in more words for the dim, "Because their technically-enforced monopoly on application distribution means they can gouge both developers and users to a far greater extent than actual competition would allow, and so they do." If you don't see that, step out of the reality distortion field once in a while.
