iTunes Store currently down for 20% of users, are you one of them?

Apple's system status page is currently reporting a fairly big iTunes Store outage, with 20% of their customer base shown to be affected. Typically this means the iTunes Store itself, along with the App Store and iBookstore, are inaccessible for many, many people.

Every service goes down every once and a while, and iTunes, while fairly reliable, is no exception. If you're having trouble, know that you're not alone. Let us know if you're having problems, what type, and if it starts working again, let us know when.

iTunes Store currently down for 20% of users, are you one of them?

For several hours I was not able to connect to the iTunes or App Store via my iPad 2 and iMac, but after sending a support email (though I have not yet received a response) the problem seems to be resolved. Server issues I am guessing?

Seems to be a planned update: if you go to the Purchased section on iPad, it works a little different now. There is a neat bar on the left that allows you to group your apps by most recent purchases, and then alphabetically. Small tweak but now at least it doesn't take minutes to get to see your gazillion apps since the groups reduce load times a lot. (In the Hungarian store, btw.)
