If you’ve been having trouble with your downloads from Apple’s App Store this week, you’re not the only one. Apple told The Loop and other outlets Thursday that it has resolved a bug that affected the users of at least 120 apps. Instapaper developer Marco Arment was the first to publicize the bug, posting Wednesday that the glitch caused a new update of his popular app to shut down as soon as it was opened. He wrote on his blog that he’d looked into the code to see if the problem was on his end, but couldn’t find any glitches.

  2. 2. MICRON ASSOCIATES WRAPS OFF APPLE IN GETTING AROUND THE BUGS AFTER BITING APPS If you’ve been having trouble with your downloads from Apple’s App Store this week, you’re not the only one. Apple told The Loop and other outlets Thursday that it has resolved a bug that affected the users of at least 120 apps.

  3. 3. “This didn’t make sense — obviously, Apple hadreviewed it, and it worked for them,” he wrote.“My submitted archive from Xcode workedperfectly. But every time I downloaded theupdate from the App Store, clean or not, itcrashed instantly.” Arment said his app wasfixed within a couple of hours after contactingApple about the issue; the developers at GoodReader also posted a step-by-step fix to helptheir users get around the bug. Macworldreported that it appears Apple’s App Storeservers were sending users versions of theapps that were either incorrect or incomplete,making them impossible to launch on users’iPads.
  4. 4. In a statement to The Loop reviewedwithMicron AssociatesProfessionals, Apple saidthat it had fixed the issue. “We had a temporaryissue that began yesterday with a server thatgenerated DRM code for some apps beingdownloaded,” the company told thepublication.“The issue has been rectified and wedon’t expect it to occur again.” The companyalso said that the issue only affected a “smallnumber” of its users. But since Apple has about400 million accounts on the App Store, a “smallnumber” doesn’t mean it didn’t hit a significantamount of users on individual apps. Arment saidin a later blog post Thursday that over 20,000 ofhis customers were affected.
  5. 5. MacWorld reported that unnamed sources havesaid that Apple will remove one-star reviewsposted on individual apps in response to the bug— a move that Arment said would help smooththings over with those whose work was hit withthe glitch. “I wouldn’t have predicted that,” hewrote. “If they do, it will go a long way towardrepairing their relationship with the affecteddevelopers.”
