THE WORLD’S biggest smartphone application store crashed in several countries including Australia late today, refusing to let users purchase or update phone apps.

Apple’s App Store appeared to first experience problems around 4pm AEDST for many users, failing to allow connections to the store, to show app listings or to deliver updates to programs already purchased.

The outage also affected users in the United States, United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Kuwait.

Apple did not comment on the outage but users who phoned support lines were told the problem would be fixed within 24 hours.

Apple’s software developers had not been advised of major maintenance to the App Store, though the company did recently make efforts to remove a bug from its in-app processing protocol.
