    I have an iPad 2 and noticed three apps needed an update this afternoon. No problem, hit update all. They go to "Waiting" status, but none of them start to load. And they are not updating at all.

    I waited for a while, thinking the servers might be jammed or something. Still nothing. Turned off the iPad (all the way, shut it down) and started it back up.. still nothing.

    Any thoughts?

    I'm getting this too. Also got an iBook that won't download. Very odd. Hope someone knows what's going on!

    Well at least I'm not alone. Servers must be crunched.

    Same problem on the iphone... the apps download fine in iTunes, though.

    Same problem here on new iPad. Having to side load through iTunes. Very aggravating.

    I am also having this problem on the iPhone 4. Jailbroken on 5.0.1, but I don't think the jailbreak is the cause of it.

    Yesterday, I tried to update 3 apps using the Update All button. Then after about 20 minutes of doing nothing, I reset the phone. After it came back on, the iPhone went into a continuous loop of rebooting every few minutes. After this went on for about an hour, I decided to try to download all the updates through iTunes and try syncing to see if that would work. It took about 5 tries, but it finally worked and my phone went back to normal with the apps being updated.

    Never had this problem until just recently, I haven't downloaded any new apps or tweaks. It's kind of a relief to know that I'm not the only one having problems updating apps...
