Don't forget to run the app in the console (python simple_app.py) before attempting to load the web page. I recently made that mistake and received this error message as a result.

At some point you will notice that Workspaces is scheduled for maintenance, usually the Team @ Treehouse sends out a notice ahead of time so that students can navigate the site accordingly. Also you can check out their status page to find out what has been going on recently.

I have the exact same problem, I can't preview the app. I get an error that goes "This is a preview link for a Treehouse Workspace that is not currently active. If you are the workspace owner, you can launch it again via the Treehouse site."
