We got a tip from an insider that The Times’ app had disappeared because of a programming screw-up. The Times was set to release an updated version of the app today, our source said, so it disabled the older version last night and switched it out.

As of this posting, there was still no Times iPad app in the store. But: “We’re currently working to rectify as quickly as possible,” the spokesperson said.
