Screenshots messed up?

Sorry if this is the wrong place but in the app store some games the screenshots aren't showing up.(on my iPhone 4) Angry birds is one of them. So I'm wanting to know if it's just me or not? Thanks

found this article on twitter

"The bug removes all your screenshots from the App Store for iPhone (iTunes and iPad not affected) when you update your app's metadata in iTunes Connect. Specifically, we have noticed this occurring due to price changes. The screenshots of these apps turn into this:"

I actually think the App Store itself is undergoing some problems. I'm not sure if it's undergoing maintenance (strange time to do so), but I cannot connect to the iTunes Store at all now.

Same, I thought they were just taking ages to load.

Have a look at Naruto RPG!
Look at Gamebook Adventures for iPhone/iPod/iPad!

Don't worry. It's happening to me as well, and it's really annoying!

Yeah I noticed, as my game is missing screenshots. Most new releases are too. There were some big revamps to iTunes Connect over the last few days, I guess it's probably related.

Taking a long time to load here too. Just use appshopper for the time being.
