BoxOffice out of App Store
Another program has been pulled from Apple's App Store, searching reveals. BoxOffice -- an app created for finding a person's location, and then buying movie tickets from theaters within a range of 50 miles -- can no longer be downloaded from the US storefront it was created for. As with the NetShare incident however, the developer has received no official word from Apple as to why the software was removed.
The developer also claims that he stays in regular contact with all of his data providers, and that none of them have had any issues with the app. He further believes that all of the data used in BoxOffice is licensed by owners as "free for non commercial use," although ticket purchases are ultimately completed through Fandango.
