    Often. Shut down the App Store in the multitask bar. Wouldn't hurt to do a reset. The download should recommence when the iPad restarts.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    If Kevin's good advice doesn't work have a look to see if you have any downloads pending in your iTunes app, if there are swipe them and delete and then go back to the app store and see if your updates will now download.

    Another alternative is to do your downloads on your PC/Mac and then sync. I find it faster, especially if you have multiple devices.

    Thanks for the responses I was able to find a solution on the web. To get the apps to download from the "waiting" message I had to stop a download that was running in the itunes store. Apparently you can't download from both the app store and itunes at the same time.

    Thanks for letting us know your solution. I had thought that this was the problem.
