    I have several updates but one or two keep stalling, and referring me to check all available downloads in apps store but where do I find this, as it doesn't appear in settings or the app store either? It also instructs me to check into iTunes but I'm already checked in. ipages and moleskin apps are giving me the biggest problem. If anyone can advise please I'd be very grateful.

    When it says, Check in iTunes, it is referring to the iTunes desktop software. In iTunes, you would then select Store->Check for available downloads.

    This message usually shows up, when you are trying to download an app larger then 20MB over 3G.

    To check available downloads on the PC click on "Apps" in your iTunes Library. At the bottom of the screen you'll see "Check for updates". Click on this and you'll get a listing of all the apps that have new available updates. Click "Get Update" next to the app icon to download the update.

    Thank you, but still not working. I am able to update other apps also able to get new apps, but re ipages and keynote it stalls everytime and tells me to go to iTunes, when I go there there are no available downloads and no library tab to select. I've checked my iTunes account is all in order. Ive tried to download the updates iTunes app but this also didn't happen. Stuck now and very Sad.

    Snow ~ go to User CP up top, middle of page and click. Then on left side follow "Edit Avatar" I think it says ~

    And don't forget to do so on your desktop browser, as the iPad browsers don't let you upload an image, though you may still use the 'add image from website' option on the iPad.

    I have no user CP so unable to select it at all. I go into my profile but there is no section for adding info or photos.

    Yeah, it won't work from within iPF, unless you use it's inbuilt browser to open the ipadforums.net website.

    Oh...IPF. I always forget that part! Yep. You have to go to your desktop for simplicity sake.
