So anyone know why Stanza is no longer in the app store? A search for it on my iphone pulls up other apps, like the Kindle reader. Seaching in itunes does the same, although you can pull up the developer, Lexcycle, but they are listed as having no products. Did I just pick a bad day and time, could they be in the process of updating it?

I agree, very odd. I just checked out their website : http://www.lexcycle.com/ and there is nothing about it, even their links don't work.

Odd.

I just tried their link to the iTunes store. Attached is the result. Very interesting - Stanza is one of the apps I've assumed will be useable on the iPad (along with Kindle and iBooks). Hopefully, it's just being updated. I already have the current version, but it doesn't do me any good since I decided reading on the iPhone was just too confined - and thus one of the reasons I ordered an iPad. :rolleyes:

edit: Perhaps someone outside the US can check the store...

Ok atleast I'm not going mad. Been trying to find it this morning to download it, and it wasn't there and I can't seem to open the lexcycle website. Very odd.

Interestingly I sync'd my iPod Touch this morning and at least it is still there ... but yeah, it is missing from my searches of both Stanza and Lexcycle ... and a web search came up empty. Glitch or heavy-handed Apple move?

Their website still touts it so I doubt that it's been pulled - and it's not the result of iBooks - it's a separate app so there is no way you can argue duplicate functionality. Not to mention iBooks is not available yet and it's probably just for the iPad whereas Stanza is just for the iPhone and Touch.

Might just be a store glitch or Stanza pulled it for some reason.

ETA: An iTunes store search for Stanza shows other book readers... Not Stanza.

Dunno if you are aware of this, I messed around after discovering there will be no native ipad stanza. If you extract your iPhone or iPod stanza backup using the iPhone backup extractor, then drill into documents / library in that backup you'll find all your books saved as numbered folders. Inside each folder are a bunch of files, the number with no extension is actually an epub file which can be renamed and synced to ipad where it will open in iBooks with all meta data intact. For safety I opened mine in stanza for windows then exported them as epubs, then stuck them in my macs iTunes library ready to sync.
