App stuck updating

Hi guys, I was trying to update an app and the iPod started and then said there was not enough room, now the app is stuck trying to update. Anybody know how to cancel the update? Never had this happen before, usually it just won't start updating if there isn't enough room.

You can just pause it. Delete something then start the update again. It should show you the size so you know how much space to free up.

After clearing enough space, if your app is still stuck, restart your device. That usually does it for me. Final idea: Delete the app and reinstall it.
