Apple pulls its only game from the App Store

Apple has removed Texas Hold'em – the only iOS game developed by Apple itself – from the App Store.

The game, released in late 2006 for non-iOS iPods, was significantly updated and given prominence on the App Store when it debuted in 2008, but has not been updated since September of that year.

Mac Rumors suggests that Apple's early interest in developing its own games stemmed from the fear that it would struggle to attract thirdparties to its system. That, of course, is no longer a cause for concern.
