    I just did a restore to ios5 (link on lifehacker) and transferred some of my old apps from my computer to the ipad after the restore.

    I tried downloading ibooks, a couple magazines, and the facebook app from app store and all of them just said waiting...

    Facebook got to loading... but the bar is still at like 5% and hasn't moved in about 15 minutes. I thought maybe it was server side, but I was able to update multiple apps on my iphone.

    Is there something wrong with my ios5 install?

    I won't tell anyone if you don't.

    Thanks to the invaluable help received from Ashwood11, without whom this thread would not be complete, I have resolved this issue.

    I purchased an episode of alphas (the free pilot) a while back but never downloaded it. This made iCloud angry. It was trying to download that to my ipad before it would let me do anything else, hence the waiting.

    Again, thank you to Ashwood11. You are truly inspirational. I love you.
