    I have a 2010 intel core imac and can't seem to download any apps from the app store site to my mac, they go to my apps folder but I just get the 'waiting' sign and nothing happens.

    I have tried to download maveriks in the past and nothing happened:( now im trying an app called shutter count and again its just says waiting. Anyone know what to do?

    resolved with Apple Care

    I will just update my situation incase its of use to anyone else.

    I tried various options with the apple care assistant and what seemed to be the issue was my own personal profile. We logged out and create a new Test profile for my computer and downloaded the new mavericks from there from the app store which sorted everything out. I logged back into my normal profile and all was sweet. I can now download from the app store so there was some issue with my computer profile and permissions- So reinstall if you fail everything else basically

    £35 lighter but problem solved!
