[Update: It’s Back] Android Market Experiencing Downtime


[UPDATE]: The Market is back up!

logo-marketWhen I heard there was a new Google Maps update, I, like many of you, rushed into the Android Market to see what new and exciting features Google has for us. No dice. It looks like the Android Market is suffering from a case of the downtime. No downloads or updates are coming through, and judging from comments and some PhanTips we have been sent, I am not the only one experiencing this. Why? Your guess is as good as mine.

It could be that the market is getting a backend update to support new features. This could include the addition of PayPal support for buying apps, or it may be related to a sweeping Market update that is said to be coming as part of the soon to be released update combo of Gingerbread and Honeycomb. It could just be an overload or other technical issue. Whatever it might be, we are sure that it will be cleared up pretty shortly, so hang tight.

[thanks to all that sent this in]
