App Store Issue

So I'm trying to download a few apps, and I'm not able to. I click "Free" then "Install App" then the button switched to "Installing" and then immediately back to "Free."

Anyone else having issues?

No problems - only situations.

I have been having a similar issue of the last few hours in trying to purchase Icebreaker HD. I was able to purchase and install another free game during that same time.

I think they are doing something with App Store, maybe updating or changing something because it's acting weird , many people reported they get error when trying to download game.

It seems to be working now, must have been some maintenance.

iOS 6.1.x bug.

To fix the issue, disable wifi or mobile data, wait until the "can't reach Appstore"-msg pops up (after 3-4 seconds), press ok, enable wifi / mobile data and download the app. This time, the purchase button will work without problems.
Dunno if it is neccessary to kill the Appstore task, but I think not.

Sometimes, this bug also happens after you've used Appzap Pro.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
