Bedside Clock removed from App Store

As I mentioned a while back, I’ve stopped developing my Bedside Clock Windows Phone app a while back after I got rid of my Windows Phone.

However, I just realised from a couple of reviews that the Yahoo! location services I was using to power the app are now no longer available :-(

This is a real shame, but as there are no obvious free alternatives - and I don’t want to go through the pain of reconfiguring the stupidly complicated Hyper-V setup used for the Windows Phone emulator without being able to test the fixes on a real phone - that I’ve decided the best thing to do is to pull the app from the store.

I don’t think that will affect any existing users, but apologies if it does.

If any developers are interested in fixing the issues, feel free to get the code from Github and do what you want with it!
