Wanted to pass this along to you all. This morning there is an article from AppAdvice with the following statement. TuneIn Radio Pro Disappears From The App Store Popular Internet radio app, TuneIn Radio Pro, has disappeared from the App Store. We think Apple might have pulled the the app due to its recording functionality which allowed users to easily pirate songs or any other copyrighted material that plays on the radio. This is also a feature not available in the free version of the app, which, has not been removed from the App Store. TuneIn Radio Pro had an average four star rating with over 199 reviews and boasted an impressive 50,000 radio stations for streaming. It even received our highest recommendation in the AM/FM Radio Apps and Best Radio Apps, AppGuides. We are still investigating the matter and will keep you posted when we hear more.

I like this app. Thankfully I purchased it quite a long time ago, but above all that, I hope apple gets a clue and stops randomly yanking apps from the store. They should keep in mind that they'll do nothing but cause the same apps to show up in the jailbreak app store, losing them money. As to the recording functionality, I'm pretty sure OOTunes also does this? I could be wrong though.
It's back in the App Store now.
Well, that was certainly fast?! I'm glad to see it back. Wonder if Apple had a trigger finger going on there? It's all good and she is back up. Thanks for the heads up!
