The other day while browsing the Mac App Store, I clicked on an app’s web site link, only to be greeted with this lovely “Can’t Find the Server” error message in Safari
That got me wondering about just how often that happens–how many apps are out there that are still in the store, yet their developers have closed down their work and moved on to other projects? I thought it might be interesting to look at my App Store purchases and see just how many of them had broken web site links in their App Store entries.
Broken links to websites or support, apps that haven’t been updated in years, the Mac App Store is like that old store in the strip mall that has dusty windows and flickering neon lights. Other than the marquee apps – macOS, big-name productivity apps, etc. – it’s full of half-empty aisles and absent floor employees.
