Pangu 9

I'm not sure if it was an oversight but Team Pangu left the iPad 2 and 3 off their list of support devices for the Pangu 9 jailbreak tool. In case you didn't get the memo, Team Pangu has released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 9 - iOS 9.0.2. The jailbreak tool is now available for Windows through the Pangu website.

New iPad Games and Apps of the Week: Appocalypse

The Walking Dead: No Man's Land

There's been a lot of drama surrounding App Store purchases this week. It all began when Touch Arcade discovered that several big name titles were removed from the App Store and customer purchase histories. This was pretty big news to a website that solely covers App Store games and it caused quite a stir, to say the least. Things really heated up when the news began to spread and iOS users started to realize that they needed to save their purchased games to iTunes or they could disappear forever.

Capcom and Telltale were the first to repsond telling Touch Arcade that games like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us were only temporarily pulled due to a bug in iOS 9. They also ensured users that the games would reappear in their purchase histories once the apps were fixed and returned to the App Store.
