Midday on Friday it appeared that Apple’s App Store, a critical piece of the digital and mobile economies, struggled with uptime issues. Apple’s own status page indicated that the application vendor has having an “ongoing” issue that affected “some users.”

The company said that it was investigating the issue, according to its website.
