Well-know Windows Phone app developer Rudy Huyn is experiencing some issues with two of his creations. One of them, TVShow, has actually been pulled from the Windows Phone Store temporarily. Another app, the Instagram-based 6tag, is also experiencing some server-side issues with video encoding.
TVShow, which lets its users track episodes, air dates and more for their favorite television programs, uses the TVRage.com website to collect its data. That site is currently down. In a Twitter message, Huyn says:
"I removed TVShow from the store, it will come back once the website http://tvrage.com (is) fixed."
As far as the issues with 6tag, Huyn writes:
"About 6tag, our servers (for video encoding) received DDOS attacks, the server team currently works on it to fix it asap."
Huyn recently announced he will be joining the Dropbox team full-time later in September, but will continue to work on his own Windows Phone apps after hours.
