    So I made a thread regarding the Facebook app going missing, seems to be an issue with the UK store and not only the facebook app

    Here also temple run OZ no longer in the UK store.

    Disney apps UK: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-GB/st...0-127a2453cc07#
    Disney apps US: Apps from Disney | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    these apps were all available before, and others will prob be missing too, whats happening?

    Anyone else notice stuff gone missing recently?

    Apps also missing:

    Amazon Kindle
    Amazon Mobile
    PayPal

    kindle-search.jpg


    I flashed my Lumia 920 with the Amber / GDR2 update last night so thought it might be something to do with that (it was a French ROM, wondered about location restrictions).
    If you bing "amazon kindle app windows phone store uk" you get a link direct to the app page.

    Amazon Kindle | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United Kingdom)

    Any ideas?

    Well this will please the tech journos

    "Apps going missing from an OS with no apps"

    The plot thickens...

    On a serious note the apps may well have been pulled due to an incoming update or maybe licensing needs renewing.

    The apps still work if they are already on your phones so no real issues.

    Ditto (had a few others try search as well - could well be a temporary glitch with the system).

    Do direct links work? Can you download the apps? If so then I'd put it down to a temporary search issue.
