Update #2 as of 6:15pm CST the AppStore is back up, online, and serving up apps again! Yea! Hope to hear from Apple on what happened.
Apple reported earnings today, and then something in the iTunes store burped… It has been down for for about the last hour and a half with Twitter bearing the brunt of user frustration. from a couple of the recent tweets, it looks like this is not a U.S. Based phenomena.
Hope all goes well with Apple bringing everything back online.
The AppStore “might” be waking back up…
