    Weblinks to the app store don't seem to work anymore. (The ones that have ...ax.Phobos...).

    They seem to be working fine for me. Still having trouble with them?

    That's odd. iTunes opens for me and brings me right to the app in the app store. Post the link and I'll try it out.

    Bad Ash, are you able to be directed to the app store from your phone?

    Oh you are trying from your phone? No I don't think that will work.

    It looks like 2.1 killed the ability for the phone app store to be opened via a weblink. I used to be able to go directly from reader to the app.

    Guess it's time for a restore then. I don't remember having to restore my Mogul or Touch this many times. I can't wait for the Touch HD.

    Just did a restore and trying to link to the app store from the iPhone safari is still giving me a address is invalid error. Bad Ash, did you have to make any changes on your settings?

    Not a single change has been made. Are you trying one app in particular?

    Nope. None of them work. My phone just will not connect to any links to the phone app store.

    That is really odd... And you did do a full restore?

    Full restore but then backed up from a old sync. So my guess is my backup is corrupted.

    Yeah, I am almost positive that may have something to do with your issue. Scrap the back up file.

    I just did a full restore and elected to setup my phone as a new phone... same error when hitting a phobos link from the phone brower. I guess I can now rule my backup out. So, I guess the next thing will be to re-download 2.1.

    Bad, from your phone, can you google "flutter iphone" and try to the link to app store and see if connects you? I'm almost at the point of throwing my phone out the window.

    *I don't understand how even with factory firmware with no apps or settings, my phone can be so different.

    *Edit 2* Sorry, forgot to thank you for all you've done to help. Thank you.

    If I go to their website, it does not work. If I go into the App store and email the link to myself and try going to it, it does work. Go figure...

    Ok, so I'm not crazy. :o I subscribe to pinch media's RSS feed on recently updated and new apps. In their feed it supplies the links that will open the app store on the phone. Prior to 2.1, those links worked but now they just give me invalid address errors.

    I guess I'm going to give up on this and wait for 2.1.1.

    Thanks again for all you've done... both here and in the forum in general.


    BTW. Restores are not any faster for me. It still takes about 4 hours which is amazing considering no media or apps are backed up plus I use Exchange.
