Angry Apps not updating

Anyone noticed that apps that automatically update when activated, like CNBC, Bloomberg or New York Times are not updating? My Times app has not updated since 8 Am this morning and the fCNBC and Bloomberg apps just time out when opening without downloading any data. Wireless system is active and working, so I am looking for assistance or guidance toward a solution.

iOS version? Jailbroken?

Reboot the device (hold power down till the power down slider appears)
or
Close the app including app store (double click the home button, hold down an app till little - signs appear)

Bill,

I did reboot and closed all apps before I posted. This has me baffled!

The last course of action before a trip to Apple:
Do a DFU restore. It's going to factory reset the OS and everything to like new, then iTunes will restore it. Should be painless, just takes awhile.

Thanks, I will give that a try, but I dont think it will cure the problem as both the iPhone and iPad are showing the same behavior on the apps. I am wondering if something is amiss in the cloud?

Could be the app store, sometimes updates can take awhile.

I suppose that is possible, but I can't connect to the app store either. I will try a restore

That's a pain. We had trouble waiting for Apple to approve our update on our app. A little different then your issue! Both frustrating!

Hopefully you have some luck! If not try rebooting your phone.
