    Same here...

    I have no idea what this is, but when I try to download or update an app, I keep getting the same message...this has never happen before from what I know of....but it's pissing me off big time.

    I'm not sure why it's doing this but I am getting the same message also. It's happening while trying to update the Draw Something app. :confused:

    This is happening to me too. Just started today. iPhone 4. Closed all background apps and reset phone. Still get the error. Can't update ANY apps now. :(

    Just got this for the first time ever, on my iPad (newest model).

    Huh. Disturbing.

    Based on this thread and Apple's support forums, seems like it's not exactly an isolated problem (I'm suffering the same problem too). Almost certainly on the Apple end of things. Tried three times to download an app. Hope I don't wind up with a $3 bill :)

    Whatever it is/was, my app updated just fine a moment ago.
    Anybody else?
    Also, for me it was the Twitter app. The same for anybody else?

    Fixed. Guess it was temporarily down for everybody for a couple hours. I'm updating apps once again. :D

    Thanks for posting. For me it wasn't Twitter (it's next), I was buying the card game Ascension. (on sale for the first time, BTW... hope it's good).
