Windows Phone users get error message, can't download apps
It doesn't sound like the beginning of a good weekend for Windows Phone users who are having problems downloading any apps on Saturday morning. Instead of installing software, users are getting an error code 805a0193 which might be easy to translate if you're an engineer in Redmond, but a mystery to the end user in Boise.

To make matter worse, not only is the poor guy in Boise having problems, so are other Windows Phone users around the world. If you're among the frustrated Windows Phone users from around the world, let us know if you've been affected by dropping a comment in the box below. And you know what? If you are having no problem with the Windows Phone Store this morning, let us know that too.

UPDATE:The problem with the Windows Phone Store appears to have been with something on Microsoft's side of the equation, but the problem seems to have been resolved and just in time too, as many are trying to install Spotify today, on their Windows Phone handset.
