Windows Phone Store down again

Windows Phone Store down again
For the second time in two weeks, those Windows Phone users trying to purchase, download or update an app from the Windows Phone Store are unable to do so. Last time, users were receiving an error code mbered 805a0193. On Friday, a different error code, c101a006, popped up when users tried to access the Windows Phone Store.

Last time, the problem was resolved quickly,  just in time for Windows Phone users to download and install music streaming site Spotify. Will this turn out to be just a hiccup? Will we continue to see problems with the Windows Phone Store? Let's hear from some of you Windows Phone users out there. Are you having problems getting into the applications store tonight? Let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.

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? "Instagram is twitter for the illiterate"

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.
