    Hi,

    For a couple of days now all I get is a blank screen under the apps store.

    I can search for an app and it pops up but when I choose a category such as utilities it just shows blank !

    Anyone else getting this ??

    Yer I have had this.

    I have been looking on the Apple forums and it is only affecting Window computers and they are meant to be fixing it soon.

    Me bad for using a windows 7 system !! lol

    Knew I should have done the decent thing and got a mac !

    Im connected to the internet through home broadband via wireless.

    Its weird because if I search for a particular app there is no issue.
    It just wont show the full spread of apps !

    Yer it is just affecting the windows version of Itunes, my friends who have macs are ok and looking on the Apple support forums it is just happening to Windows computers.

    Everything is good on my MBP and all my iDevices. I'm glad I switched from my Windows 7 laptop to a MBP. That would drive me crazy if that was happening for me.

    Anybody back up?

    Mine is still down, apparently only way to fix is to remove Itunes off the computer and re install. Which I really CBA to do.

    Well done for being unable to think for yourself, "ooooh, I must have an MBP because everybody else does and they all make fun of me" :rolleyes:

    For an everyday workhorse, there is a very good reason why companies don't use Mac's and Mac products. I don't mind having an iPhone and iPad, but would never buy a Mac for day-to-day use.

    Where have you seen the advice to remove iTunes and re install ?

    That's drastic if so !!

    New iTunes update this morning resolved the blank app store issues I've been having with my windows 7 pc.

    Um no, that's not why I got a MacBook. I got it because it suits my needs and appeals to me. Plus in my experience, Apple devices tend to last longer than most other companies (note how I didn't say all, just most). Maybe for your needs a Mac doesn't fit into your work life, but for me it works fine. So before you go around making assumptions about people, you should remember that everyone is different and needs different uses from their computers. That's why we have variety and choices; so we can pick what suits us best.
