In App purchases broken in the Windows Store at the minute, dont blame the developers


Developers are complaining that at the present In App Purchases appear to be broken in the Windows Store, with purchase tokens not being recognized, and apps therefore defaulting to their pre-purchase state (which usually means somewhat limited and with ads).

Rudy Huyn on twitter noted:

At the linked Microsoft Answers thread there seems to have been little help so far for developers who are at the end of paying user’s wrath, and we hope Microsoft takes the issue, which appears to have been going on for much of today, a bit more seriously.

Have our readers who are users or developers been affected by this issue? Let us know below.
