    Lenny, this may be a long shot but if one is running out of bullets that is worth a try? Have you signed in with more that one account in iTunes? That is, when downloading apps is that with the same account related to the purchased/free app? I know there is nothing more annoying that getting airy/fairy advice after you have seemed to try everything. But this is just another attempt to help. The answer can't be too far away as this forum attempts to address every problem and question.

    Hi Andrew, I only have the one account for my iTunes. However you've just reminded me that it never asked me for my password but that could be due to the system upgrade right? Thanks

    That's right. Once you are on iOS 6 you don't need to supply your password for updates. And Andrew is right. One way or another, we will get to the bottom of this. It just might take a while.

    Kevin....you're on IOS6? Has the iTunes app changed? I haven't updated as yet, still debating on it and other things. But Lenny has said he doesn't have the downloads tab.

    I've also heard that certain settings have changed too, it might be an idea to check if anything has changed for the app store settings. Just a thought here.

    Yes, I'm on iOS 6 on the iPad, and I kept iOS 5.1.1 on the phone so I have access to both versions. I'll check iTunes and get back to you. I know the App Store has changed radically. Example, you can no longer gift an app.

    Here's a screenshot of the iOS 6 iTunes Store. No downloads tab, as you say.

    And here's the iOS 5.1.1 version.

    Lenny, have you downloaded anything in iTunes recently?

    Might be an idea to sign out of the App store and back in too.

    I am having this same problem. Since last week new apps and updates for existing apps won't download actually the timing seems to have coincided with ugrading to IOS6 but don't know if that is just a coincidence or not. And, pressing on the app for three seconds does make it jiggle but the waiting apps do not have an X in the corner so that I can delete them. Even worse one of the apps I was trying to update is one I just recently downloaded and was just learning how to use it and very much liked it and now that it is in waiting status I cannot use it. I have only had my iPad for about 1 month and I'm a very frustrated user right now. Does anyone know how to delete these apps that are now in limbo?

    I've noticed sometimes that deleting History and Cookies can sometimes fix problems that I have in other areas.....go to Settings - Safari and clear them here.

    I don't know if it will make the difference here but it is worth a try.

    Didnt want to create a new thread so Im gonna use this one.

    Today I tried installing "Box" from the app store. My ipad rebooted during it and now Ive go a ghosting icon that is forever waiting. Ive tried the below and still have the same problem.

    Reset all settings
    signed out and back in to app store
    erased all history and cookies
    installed the app through itunes on my pc - This causes it to freeze on installing
    Erased the app in settings>general>usage>delete app
    Erased the app in itunes
    Rebooted about 30 times


    Im on 5.1.1 and I do not want to go to 6.0. I am jailbroken so Im wondering if I use ifile to delete wahateve file I need to, then maybe itll go away?

    Really hoping someone can help me out here.
