    When I download medium or/and large apps, it always fail to download/update. It takes me a lot of retries for me to finish one. I tried deleteing and re-downloading the app. I tried restarting my iPad, rebooting. No luck.

    Is there anyways to fix this?

    Also when I switch between app stores for example philippines to US stores instead of getting the apps I purchased in th e US store I get the purchase I made in the philippines. I manage to fix this by logging out then logging in. But this always happen when I switch between stores.

    Is there anyways to fix this also?

    Also the device i am using is an iPad 2.

    Trouble downloading large apps may have more to do with your Internet connection rather than your iPad.....how is your Internet speed have you ever done a check on it?
    There are apps available for this.

    You will need to be logged into whichever account you want to buy an app with. ie....If you want to buy in the US store, you will need to be logged into that account....it will normally then switch to the US store.

    Hope this is what you meant!

    My wi-fi is 2.4 Ghz. Is that good?

    Also I tried removing all data in my iPad and getting back a restored save in iTunes. All my apps is not encrypted in iTunes so I lost data. I tried downloading my apps back and I get the same fail message. So it may have to do with my iPad.

    There's no other way to switch between App Stores than logging out of one country's App Store, and logging in with another country's Store. There's no workaround and no fix for this.

    As leelai already told you, if you have problem downloading apps, it's often the internet connection that's causing this.
    You could download large apps through iTunes on your computer, and then sync your iPad to it afterwards.

    I manage to change my app store by going in settings-> itunes and app store-> view apple.

    What I was talking about is that when I switch country app stores, in the purchased list I get the purchase list of the last country app store I have been. I fixed this by logging out my apple id and logging in back. The problem is that I when I switch country app stores it happens again.

    Big apps take longer to download. However, the conditions on the internet can change over time, so bigger apps are more likely to see those changes which are difficult to notice during short time periods. Everyone and anyone who deals with the internet has to deal with this. Most of the time, this is NOT iPad related. I agree with the other poster that it is better, in such cases, to download the app on your computer in iTunes (where you have a wired connection which in many cases is faster) and once you get it down, sync your iPad.

    Do you use the same email address for both stores? I can't imagine another way for just switching App Stores by only viewing your Apple ID.

    Logging out and in again is the easiest method to switch Stores without complications.

    Yes I use the same email. Without no other apple id. Just one. Settings-> Itunes and App store -> Apple ID-> tap the slot where there is a flag -> do all the procedures (I think in the first step that is where you can pick your country app store) also for the last step I use random (And valid) informations.
