Corrupt update effects App store

“Last night, within minutes of Apple approving the Instapaper 4.2.3 update, I was deluged by support email and Twitter messages from customers saying that it crashed immediately on launch, even with a clean install.

This didn’t make sense — obviously, Apple had reviewed it, and it worked for them. My submitted archive from Xcode worked perfectly. But every time I downloaded the update from the App Store, clean or not, it crashed instantly.” – says Marco Arment, creator of Instapaper App in his blog, yesterday.

A number of iPhone OS apps that posted updates in the App Store in the last couple of days are crashing upon launch. The issue appears to be affecting many apps, including popular ones such as Instapaper and Angry Birds Space. The app crashes immediately on launch, every time, even after a delete and reinstall as long as the corrupt file is being served by the App Store.

He concluded that a seemingly corrupt update being distributed by the App Store in many or possibly all regions.
