Apple has posted a notice on its System Status page that some iTunes Store users "may be unable to make purchases". The company has not provided any further details, nor an estimate for when it will be repaired.

No other Apple services are currently affected, however.

Why would it be any easier to download a free app than a paid one? They're coming from the same place.
The user probably tried download free apps to see if downloads from the App Store were working and is just specifying that they weren't about to spend money to give some free micro-reporting to us.

I cannot download apps already purchased, cannot access my account and can't even download free apps.
