External links to apps in App Store no longer working

    I found today that I suffered the same issue on my 3rd generation iPad running iOS 6.0. My solution, while a bit drastic, was to go into Settings->General and choose Reset All Settings. After the settings got nuked and the device restarted, the problem was no longer present.


    This reset didn't nuke my data, just WiFi settings and a few other things. The only annoying thing is that I had to choose a new passcode as our Exchange server settings wouldn't let me use my existing passcode for the device.


    I hope this helps someone.

    Thanks Scott. The "Resetting all settings" move worked for me. I really appreciate that you posted your fix which I shall from this day forward refer to as "the Gruby Maneuver."

    Yeah, we noticed the same thing. Everything seems to be working again. Thankful for the quick fix on Apple's side.

    I am still having the problem when I click a link to an App. Sometimes, I will eventually get to the desired app but most times I just get to the front page or the app store crashes.

    Reset all settings did not fix the problem for me.
