Hi, I think there is a bug in playbook appworld (I did not try the others). all application status "remove from sale" can now be downloaded by new user (not reinstall).
very strange. please verify with your team especially appworld in playbook.
that doesnt make sense. The opposite make sense. Users can redownload apps that are pulled from app world (so if they purchase it, they can retrieve it). I have tried and as far as I know new users cannot download apps that are removed from sale. It may only be the case that App World isnt insteading updated due to caching that some users still can download the app a few hours after you change the status.

Hi, my app is to removed one month ago and can be downloaded!
This is BUG IN APP WORLD!
If you share (or someone else) your deep download link to this application, new user can download this application.
SAD BUT TRUE.
It was only after the intervention of TEAM App World application can not be downloaded.

There is an easy workaround. Edit your app (pencil like button), tab Distribution, Country Restrictions, Available Only In Selected Countries and select only one country (e.g. Albania or whatever you choose). This change will trigger a ticket, once the ticket is approved, your problem is solved.

Not a perfect solution. Because "edit app to country restrictions" and create change ticket only applies to "remove from sales" status.
How to hide from appworld with "Draft" app status. Because "draft app status" also visible to appworld. "Draft status" not created change ticket if change country restrictions.

I didn't offer a solution, I offered a workaround.
"App in draft status" don't create tickets, because the changes are applied immediately. Tickets are created only for changes for already approved apps.
Besides "app in draft status" are not visible in AppWorld, the only way to download such app is via sandbox account and it is used for testing purpose (it's not a bug)

I do not know what happened behind appworld, yesterday if search vendor name in appworld playbook (tested on two playbook and two different account no in sandbox account list), all application including "app in draft status" appears in the search results and "app in draft status" since one months ago, so i think this is not cache problem.
And now "app in draft status" was no longer appears in search results. And for "remove from sales" status, i use @QuiteSimple workaround.
I think this is still appworld bug because app in "remove from sales" should not appears to search results. once again, this is not a cache problem

Sent from my BlackBerry® smartphone on O2
This application have status "Post for sale"
Never does not share a link to this app!
Because the application was added to the manual status of the app world!
When the application is accepted, I have to manually add it yourself to the app world. But I did not.
The question is ... This where the end-user has access to it?
The only thing that comes to my head, is made available to anyone with the app world tester.
I asked this member a question: How do you download this app .... I'm waiting for an answer.
Of course, this is not problem with cache....THIS IS BIG BUG IN APP WORLD!!! THAT WORKINK APP WORLD.
SAD BUT TRUE.
What's the worst ... zero apology from the App World TEAM for all lost nerves and emails sent to me by the users!

There is an IssueTracker. If you believe that you have found a bug in AppWorld, be so kind to create an issue about it.
