The Facebook SDK has pulled the ground out of an iOS application for a number of popular services. On Apple’s mobile platform, apps from Spotify, Twitter, Viber, Tinder, Pinterest and Venmo, among others, ran into problems, and according to The Next Web, users even experienced disruptions to the App Store as the weekend approached. Fortunately, Facebook fixed the problem relatively quickly, in a matter of hours: the company said a number of iOS apps that relied on it crashed due to the SDK update, but it didn’t reveal exactly what its developers had corrupted when the code was modified. As TechCrunch points out, a similar incident occurred as early as May around the community giant's house, when an SDK update also forced a significant portion of the most popular iOS apps to its knees.
