App Store general app link with App ID sometimes won't work on iOS Device

I have use App Store general link to redirect user to our other apps using App Store iOS App. It's worked perfectly. But before 2-3 days and till now it some times works and some times shows a message "Cannot connect to iTunes Store".



General App Store Link is: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=APP_ID&mt=8





My App ID is abulately correct. No confusion.

Have any one faced this type of problem?? Or what is the reason ? It's a problem of mine or Apple?

You can just replace APP_ID by any of your application Id.

I had already replaced the app id with other app IDs (crackle, Ynth) and it seems to be working perfectly fine on my iPad and iPod. So thats why I asked for "your" app id so I could try it and check if it was working for me or not.

Also, did you you try using the newer links which shows up like this - http://itunes.apple.com/app/beyond-ynth/id386303262?mt=8

Your provided link is used for a specific application. I want to use only "app id" to generate a App Store Link for iOS Devices.

My App ID: 430545903

You can use a shorter version of the address in this format:
