Some Apple iOS Apps No Longer Downloadable through iTunes

I went to update a bunch of apps in iTunes today, and I got this alert:

Cant download find friends

I got the same alert for the Podcasts app.

Yet iTunes is unaware of this change; it offers an Update button:


This is a problem for people with multiple devices and slow internet connections. If you’re in this situation, you may want to download updates to your apps, then sync them via iTunes. You can no longer do so for at least these two apps.

Granted, these apps aren’t very big, but I don’t understand the logic here…
