    Apps stuck on waiting

    I've got 5 new apps stuck on waiting. I updated an old app in the meantime - no prob. The prob occurred after I updated to the new....? I've pressed an icon, they all shake, but no 'x' comes up on the waiting icons. I've deleted ALL my podcasts. I've reset the machine. Nothing works Any advice. P.S. I ONLY have an iPad, no other Apple products, so can't sync to anything.

    I have had that problem in the past, with about 12 apps stuck. The only way I could fix it was to click once on each app that wanted to update, thus pausing the update. I then clicked on one of them again which released the pause and it slowly updated. I then released each one in turn until they all updated. I have never had the problem since. I have no idea what caused the issue but it was quite a problem for a while. No other solutions suggested helped me, I had to work that one out for myself. It was odd. I hope this solution works for you too.

    This didn't work, unfortunately. Anyone else got a suggestion?

    I've not had any problem with this so I hope this suggestion won't cause trouble. Try signing out of the iTunes Store and signing in again. Also, if you haven't rebooted your iPad since you upgraded to iOS 6, that will solve some problems.

    "Home" is the button on the front of the iPad (the one with the square in it).

    I suggest find another wifi hotspot at a friends or restaurant as the issue maybe your wif modem. You could try turning off your modem and try again.
