Apple’s long one-day App Store nightmare is apparently over. Speaking to All Things D late Thursday, Apple said that it has fixed bugs within a DRM code-generating server that was corrupting recently-updated apps and causing them to crash. Instapaper developer Marco Arment started banging the drum about problems on the App Store early on Thursday and by the end of the day had generated enough reaction to force Apple to respond. Apple says that it doesn’t anticipate any more app-crashing problems for App Store users and it recommends that users affected by the app-crashing bug re-download updates to their apps to fix the problem.
