    I bought an app for my iTouch yesterday and it is on my screen, but it only shows up as Waiting... and will not download. I don't know how I can get rid of it! Help!

    This has happened to me before.
    Click the Waiting app so it pauses it, and shut off your ipod using the home+power button method. Wait the minute for it to start back up, and when it connects, it should ask you for your itunes password. Enter it, and put your iPod down and wait.

    One time I had this problem which lasted for a week. Turns out it was a glitch in the program, and was fixed after an update of the waiting app.

    Good Luck

    This is happening to me right now.

    Your download was glitchy and/or your WiFi was disconnected in the middle of a download.

    You pretty much just have to re-boot and if you have home wifi then let it sit for about an hour or something. Maybe not that long, but usually that amount if you have more apps doing it.

    I was at a wifi place and my download got cut off when I left. Unfortunatley for me, my home wifi is broken so I have to go to McDonalds or something and just sit there.

    If you have SBSettings, you can just respring (which is quicker than reboot).

    How to remove stuck app

    I downloaded an app and the only thing I did was log out and back into my account and I worked perfectly!!

    Try it it could work for you. A reboot is not always necessary in times like these!

    Most of time, I will connect with iTunes, and then use iTunes download this app, and sync into iPod to replace it.
