ShapeShift removed from the iOS App Store?

I just recommended the app to a friend and he said it isn't available in the US App Store.

So I came here to check if anyone else has had problems, thinking it would be all over the forums if it had been removed. Didn't find anything.

Then I search the App Store myself and "Shapeshift" returns nothing but games.

Can anyone confirm they are having the same issue?

Apple just asked Jaxx to remove Dash so I'm concerned they are starting a war against cryptocoins in general (again).

Wasn't it Apple who recently said "these are the cryptos we will allow"? Which effectively was saying "we think all the other ones are scams". Hence Jaxx is allowed to continue with Bitcoin and Ethereum but not the DAO or Dash.

Ummmm no. Apple still very much supports DAO tokens within the Jaxx wallet.

There is no sense is trying to pick apart their (non) reasoning.

Just check out this Apple announcement to learn their "strict" criteria for acceptance or rejection into the App Store: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmsfFfD4mQo (parody video I made)

One of the crypto wallets said it was a doge wallet and snuck through.

Bunch of scam wallets got in too.

Try going to the shapeshift.io web site and clicking the download app link there. Here's the link it gives me https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/shapeshift-instant-crypto/id996569075?ls=1&mt=8

Can't try it out as I don't have an iPhone

The link does not work. It opens iTunes/App Store with the message

The item you've requested is not currently available in the U.S. store.

That's not how IOS works...

The app is still on my phone, but the app store no longer lists it. Wonder if it will be pulled off of my phone at sometime?

They can't. But your app won't update until they approve a new version on the app store.

They cannot remove it from your phone, however if you remove it you wont be able to get it back.

Down load CoinCap from App Store. Can access ShaoeShift through this app.
