    I'm unable to download the update or app.

    Anyone else?

    It's being discussed in the iOS 7 Bugs thread.

    My apologies.

    Also, I believe it's both iOS 6 and iOS 7

    I had this problem all last night. I wasn't able to get the update which messed up the app itself. I wasn't even able to download it in iTunes. It gave me the same message. I slept the pain of not having Facebook off, and now the download worked on the iPhone.

    I am not sure what the reason was for the issue. I am on iOS 6.1.2 iPhone 5.

    Do you have any idea what caused it? I am curious. Ever since the update came out last night, it was messed up, until this morning. It made me very upset. O_o

    Rumor is that the last update was causing bad crashes with the app and they pulled which had some of us to be stuck in limbo

    Interesting. Because I tried to get this update, it caused me not to have Facebook period, basically. I stayed up until 1:30 am to try to download it on iTunes. I'm glad it is fixed now though. :)

    Unfortunately for most of us that did not work. It kept giving me the error that it was "unable to download at this time." Luckily this morning it let me. I was sad not to have Facebook all night.

    Couldn't you just use the mobile website while waiting?

    It was at 1AM so I went to sleep. Luckily right when I woke up 8 hours later, I was able to finally download it. I thought that it was an issue with me until I saw other people discussing it.

    Right. I just noticed that you seemed pretty upset to have to go without facebook for a while and was just pointing out that the mobile websites were there before the apps were made and they are always an option as a fallback. I think people get so reliant on them that they forget that apps aren't the only way to access their account.

    I never use the mobile site. Ever ever ever!

    You're absolutely correct. I'm glad it didn't occur during the day though, although then I would just access my account on my laptop. But being in public, it would be very inconvenient accessing my account using the mobile website. I don't remember all my passwords as I just have them saved using 1Password.

    I've used it only once years and years ago, probably when I did not have the app. I was just shocked last night to have that download of the update issue. I like checking for updates often and getting them. I never have had that issue happen.

    I am so happy that the iCafe Forums app has not had any issue like that. Although it does not show the signature anymore when I post, most of the time late at night when I respond or answer people's questions, I am in my bed on the app.

    The issue appears to be over. I was able to download the update with no problems.

    I'm not sure if you understood my point - mobile websites are always there as a backup. You said you were very upset because you had no way to access Facebook on your phone, but you could have just used mobile Safari.
