    App download stuck on 'waiting'-imageuploadedbytapatalk1387065352.305911.jpg
    Does anyone know to get rid of this app that says still waiting??? I can't delete it the normal way.
    It's been this way since I got the phone two weeks ago.
    If I did a reset would all the other apple apps still be able to download back on like pages, etc?

    If you did a reset you would be able to get those apps back. They would be in your purchased section of the App Store.

    That's the "Find Friends" icon. Have you tried going into the App Store and touching the the "Install/Download" button there?

    sometimes just touch the app itself starts the download- if you wanted to pause a download you would tap it as well

    It just says open as if it thinks the app fully installed

    You go into App Store and try to jump start it that way? Maybe even try to download something else. See if that helps

    If it was paused, then it would have showed the pause sign. It doesn't work like that. It would only show waiting if another app was downloading.

    In this situation it's a glitch.

    Sadly, a restore may be the only solution. Just make sure you back up the phone.

    I think I backed it up earlier using iCloud . Is that the correct way?

    Yeah. You can backup using iTunes or iCloud. If you want to do it straight from the phone, then you should backup to iCloud again and go to Settings and General. Then, tap on Reset and tap on Erase All Content and Settings. After you do that, just setup the phone again and this time restore from the iCloud backup. Tell me if you want instructions for doing it on the computer although doing it from the phone will be faster.

    Before you do that. Try turning off the phone by pressing the home and power buttons at the same time. Sometimes it helps when normal rebooting doesn't.

    Can you connect your device to your computer and see if iTunes will detect it and the app? If it does, delete the app via iTunes and then reinstall it, if you're able to.
