Weird: Line 2, which I wrote enthusiastically about earlier today, is now suffering a denial-of-service attack (chronicled on parent company Toktumi’s Twitter feed). The app is currently missing from the iPhone App Store, which gave me a scare: There are multiple other examples of programs you’d think Apple might have a problem with hitting the store, attracting attention, and then getting yanked by Apple. (Here’s one.) But Toktumi founder Peter Sisson told me that the company pulled the app itself so that new users wouldn’t start off with a bad experience during the attack.
As I write this, the attack has been going on for at least six hours. I’m still looking forward to trying Line2 once it’s back.
