    Unable to select application

    Hello!

    I'm new to this forum, so please forgive me if I make any mistakes. I am not a techie at all! I have the iPad 2 and I am not able to to select an application from the apple store for installation. Specifically, cox tv for iPad 2. Not sure why? The "install" button is greyed out and I'm unable to select.


    Any suggestions?

    Thank you for your input.

    Hi mommy...have you tried to force the app store app to quit. Sometimes when apps get weird like this, it is good to try to force the all to close. Do this by:

    Force the app to quit by pushing the home button twice to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. By long pressing the app in question, it will begin to jiggle-press *the red circle with the negative sign on the app. *It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.*

    Also: Welcome to the iPadForum! This forum is loaded with invaluable information which contain topics including: General Discussion of the iPad, iPad Operating System, iPad App Store, Accessories, and Ipad for Business and Education.

    The iPadForum also includes a Regional Ipad Group for international users across the world. This is a wonderful area to "find" members from your own country. See here:Regional iPad Groups

    If you have not already done so, please take a moment to download the iPad Manual User Guide iOS 5. This is extremely helpful if you are new to the iPad world.

    This may be a stupid question, but have you checked to see if the app is already on your iPad? Typically when you install an app, when you go back to that app in the AppStore, the install button is greyed out.

    Darn.

    Ok, go to settings/restrictions. Make sure it is turned off. You may have it turned on.
