They disappeared for a while, apparently for bug fixes, so perhaps you missed them then? They reappeared just recently. This has been discussed at the Story Forum more than on here.
Love Marathon, and also play Doom on modern source ports? You might like these skins!

I knew about M1, but I wasn't aware that Marathon 2 had been ported to they ipad as well. However, I do have to beg the question: who cares? Why pay for something you can get for free? [MErr]
http://electricsheep.org/ Wicked Custom Screen Saver. It actually evolves over time, thanks to some internet-y crap.

Because now you can play it on the go! On a system that's incredibly inconvenient for playing shooters!

I'm still waiting for it to come out on Windows Phone.

No, I missed them too, just saw them on the app store. I don't care how inconvenient and pointless they might be, I am getting these right now.

EDIT: Does anyone know if they are porting Infinity?

FYI - A port of Infinity was just released last week, it's on the app store.

Insanely hard to play on iOS. Trying to do with 2 fingers what I am used to doing with 10 on a keyboard...yikes.

And, tapping the Marathon logo on the main screen doesn't make the sound! What's up with that? [MLaugh] Good attempt at adapting to the UI, though.

Tapping the Screen in A1 doesn't make the sound either...
