iTunes Failure

I don’t get to write about this too often. But tonight I ran into a situation where iTunes did not fail gracefully.

I recently joined facebook and decided to test out the free facebook app from the iTunes App Store. So I plugged in the iPhone, fired up iTunes, and did a search and found the app.

Unfortunately, when I went to “purchase” the free app, I was greeted with the following:

Yes, I do have some credit on my account and I can understand why they want to check for songs, movies and applications that cost money. However, its a FREE app. It really shouldn’t need to check anything and if it fails, it should simply allow me to download the application and continue on my way.

Unfortunately, not so much.
