    Apps wont update on iPad 2

    When there are updates available for my iPad 2, I click to update them. However when I do this a message comes up saying 'Cannot download the app at this time' and I can either retry or hit done. This is happening nearly all the time. I have 12gb free so memory is not an issue. Can anyone help? Thanks

    I wonder if you sign out of your account and sign again...that might fix it?

    Does this occur on wi-fi or 3g. I had the same problem on wi-fi at home. Reset your router and it may fix the problem.

    CLOSING APPS: If an app has stopped responding or closes on launch, try the following: * Home screen * click the Home button twice * Tap and hold on the app * When it jiggles, tap the (-) to close it * Double-click the Home button and re-open the app

    Thanks for replying guys. I have logged out and back into my iTunes account and nothing has changed. Ive checked to see if there are any pending downloads like podcasts that may affect it but no nothing. I have had this problem on both wifi and 3G and also on my iPhone 4S........HELP!!

    What is the app that you are having problems with? Just to rule it out, is your device on 5.1? If not it may be that the app requires you to be on 5.1 (I think the iMovie update requires that).

    I've had this issue recently also, the only fix I found to work was to simply delete the app and re download it. I think my issue arose because I had about 70 updates to install and when I selected update all it got so far then I had the same error message you got. At one point none of the updates would work. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the VLC player which I heard was taken off the app store so it would not fetch the update, leaving most of my apps with a small black loading bar on each app and would not open or update. This also happened with IBooks for some reason. Eventually I deleted a few problem apps and it just resolved itself from there then i download them again and everything worked smoothly. This has been happening to a few members recently. I'm on an 5 month old iPad 2 on 5.0.1.

    Well, do I have to update? Can I delete or get rid of the update? So the number isn't there by the icon. Something's say they are for the 3.0. OS, I have 5.0.1 do I need to update anyway? What do you think?
