Apple Claims GameStore App Released Prematurely - Issues Refunds
We previously reported about an application that prematurely made its way into the iPhone App Store called “GameStore.” It was deemed an Apple internal testing tool for their iOS in-app-purchase system. The June 2009 date, which is the month of the event in which the in-app purchase was formally announced, on the application store page seems to confirm that. Apple recently sent out an email that informed everyone that the app was pulled from the App Store:
You recently purchase the GameStore app. The app was made available for sale prematurely. We apologize for the problem and have refunded the purchase amount back to your account. These funds will be applied to your original payment method within 5 business days.
Did you pick up the GameStore app when it was available? Are you looking forward to its actual release? Share any thoughts and opinions below!

Oh god no why split the App Store into categories.. People who browse the app store looking for games might stumble upon a utility app and vice versa.. Splitting the app store up will seperate the gamers from the non-gamers and less of each will be bought

Is it an error in the email or from the MMi writer who typed the topic?

Apple has set a precedent. Apparently it IS pretty simple to offer refunds. Let's see refundable apps in the appstore Apple!
