A couple of days ago, it was reported that Apple had bought HopStop, a mapping app that specializes in transit directions. Apple confirmed the acquisition shortly after the news surfaced. HopStop is currently a top navigation app in the iOS App Store.

Now HopStop’s Windows Phone app has vanished. Big shocker, right?

A site called WindowsObserver first observed that HopStop’s app had disappeared from the Windows Phone Marketplace without explanation. No specific reason for the pull has been given by HopStop or Apple, but the Android version of the app is still in Google Play.

At least for now.
