    I started to download an app which after starting it I realized is more than 1.8G and my WiFi connection is poor to say the least. I just paused it. Then I did the home button/power button turn off/on but it did not work. I did the back up through iTunes which took ages but the paused app is still there! Is there any other way to get rid of the paused app? I cannot download it and then delete due to poor wifi.

    Try rebooting your iPad by holding down the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button until you see the Apple logo in the middle of the screen. After a few seconds, you will see a red arrow that says "slide to power off", but keep holding the buttons down until you see the Apple. Let go of the buttons and let your iPad restart and the app should be gone!

    Thanks for the quick response. I did as per your suggestion (until Apple logo shows then release both buttons and let it restart) but the app is not gone and still shows Paused.

    You need to connect to iTunes and go to the STORE tab and tell it to "Check for Available Updates". It will then download the app for you and then you can sync it to the iPad. I had this happen a couple of days ago, with the Navicon update.
