For the second time this month, the Windows Phone Store is down and an error message is up; downloading and purchasing apps is affected as is updating already purchased apps; about two weeks ago, the Windows Phone Store went down, leaving users staring at error code 805a0193, while Friday's error code reads c101a006...

Why is instagram so necessary? After the news that instagram exposed the users privacy, I would never use the instagram ever again... And I wish to unsubscribe my account if can... Glad I just put 4 pictures of meal, which fine by Mr :(

Why would you need Instagram anyway? You have better sharing options with facebook (and even twitter and stuff), what makes instagram so special? I tried it on android, and uninstalled it after a few days, since everyone who was using it was also on facebook. The filters make bad pictures look worse, they don't respect your privacy, and anyone with a computer or feature phone can use facebook, but may not have access to instagram. Or is it some sort of stupid elitist thing?

Why Instagram? There are way better photo editing apps. I think it's also better to share photos on facebook, because Instagram exposed users' privacy.

Why are you receive red thumb by sayin working fine?
I just don't understand, when android has the issue and the user says work fine, it will receive a lot of green thumb, but this? Why are we treated so unequal?

The Android Play store has always worked perfectly for me. Just sayin. But in all fairness the windows store is still in its infancy and like with any infant it needs to take a nap now and then.
