Windows Phone users get error message, can't download apps

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.

Go play with your teddy bear and don't care to comment here. If you feel WP OS sucks, why do you bother to be here in this article. Act a little matured rather than posting stupid & boring comments!

Well said

28. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

sadly you're wrong bro im not a one sided coin, as ive stated CLEARLY in past post that if google was in the wrong about, crossing certain lines with their business practices then they very much so deserve to get whats coming to them..........and example of that was when an article about Google "may" have been snooping around in apple users privacy too much......remember that one? well if you were apart of that discussion then you would know what i said about Google or whom ever was in the "wrong" there..... Microsoft knows very well what their doing and their pride is going to be a major set back for them if they continue to think that by "bashing" someone they will get what they want........and instead of "asking" google for someone things they feel the need to "point out" what THEY (microsoft) believe are flaws within googles business practices........not so bro, google is doing the right things here so i gotta stick up for them sorry

I'm with you. If it wasn't for Microsoft's arrogance, I'd go full on and ditch my Android phone, as my first love was always Nokia. But, considering my memories of Windows Mobile (lack of support and updates) and the fact that my other phone for work right now is a Lumia 710 that won't be getting an update, it's a tough pill to swallow. All three major OSes are in my household, so I have no hard loyalty. I wish people would see beyond their own blatent fanboyism and call a spade for what it's worth.
