Twitter could not be purchased at this time

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


For a few days I have this kind of error from App Store. I cannot buy anything and I don’t know why. My account is not banned and I am a little bit confused. I have this error on my iPad only and the App Store is working great on my iPhone using the same account. Can anyone explain me please what is wrong with my iPad ?

Thank you experts !

4. Top left hand window you can see the ‘Downloads‘ folder.  Open it (not the plus sign).  At this point you should see a lot of

Note: files also can be located at /var/mobile/Media/Downloads.
