    Did you check your storage capacity? Maybe space on your iPad is the problem.

    I had a similar problem, I deleted the app and then downloaded it again and it was solved. Just be aware it can delete all your files or game saves in that app when you delete the app so only do this if it's not an app with important word docs in or something you can't save. If its just a simple game or login app, delete it and download again. It will download the updated version.

    This issue is occuring with more and more iPads lately I see. This issue was effecting me downloading ally updates but this resolved it. Good luck.

    ME too. Two days ago, tried to update three apps via 3G, gets half way through and then stops, iPad has been on for two days solid, everything else works fine. Tried a reboot, no change. I will await until Monday PM before panicking, may be all server IT staff are at home with family and will spot the problem on Monday morning and reboot server....

    As has been pointed out, deleting the file on the iPad will probably delete all files. Note to self. Must remember to back up all files before updating software as per desktop. Is there a way of canceling the update and carrying on with the old version?

    I had the same problem! I finally solved it by updating all my apps on my PC, then doing a SYNC. This updated 99% of my hanging updates!
