    Hey Guys,
    When I was at home on WiFi, I updated about 6 apps, but must have left the house before they fully updated.
    Now I'm at uni (no Wifi) I plugged the iPad into iTunes, it downloaded the updates but doesn't seem to have installed.
    All the apps just show a grey box and say 'Waiting'. Syncing apps doesn't work.

    Any ideas?

    Had this problem on my iPhone 4. All I did was press and hold the sleep and home button till it turned off then did the same to turn it on again and haven't had the problem since.

    App in "waiting" mode

    Found the answer. You have to hold down the power button until it asks you to power off. Once powered off you can power back on and the "waiting" app will be removed.:D
