Some users who tried to download apps from Apple's App Store on Thursday found themselves unable to do so.

Although users could still browse for apps, clicking on "download" or "update" buttons yields the message, "Cannot connect to iTunes Store."

The App Store appeared to be working again at the time of publication.

It seemed to be a global issue; Harry Hirsch in Germany said he was experiencing issues, as were colleagues at both Mashable's New York and San Francisco offices. Rene Ritchie in Montreal said he was unaffected, however.

It's been a bad day for Apple, whose market cap dipped below US$500 billion on Thursday morning (US time) for the first time since it passed that milestone in February.

Apple declined to comment.
