    I have been trying to install an app via iTunes and it will not do it.
    I sync it when I click install and it installs and then the app still has the "still installing" tint to it.
    Plz help.

    Additional info
    My itunes is 11.0
    Ipad 2
    Ios7
    App file is .ipa
    :mad::apple:

    Why can't you just download it from the app store directly onto the iPad?

    Ah. Can you delete the app on the iPad that is stuck at installing? Oh, another idea, have you tried turning off and restarting the iPad?

    Do you think having that app will raise the sale price?

    If you didn't purchase it when it was available, and you're trying to install the .ipa directly - only way I know of would be jailbreak.

    Does that really increase the value of the ipad? I never would have thought.

    No. There was a frenzy when it was removed from the app store, but it doesn't actually increase the value. Once the buyer sets the iPad up as new it will delete the app anyway.

    That's what I thought. It wasn't that great of a game anyway... I mean, it was fun for a week, then it got boring.

    Often that is caused by the computer in question not being authorized to the applicable iTunes Store account for the app. Like if you just got a new computer and hand transferred the files over.

    And iTunes for windows doesn't always prompt you to authorize. I believe it's under the store menu
