    I'm having the same problem too. Did a hard reset and even reset all settings and still my app is stuck on waiting.
    Press and hold onto one of the apps that is stick "waiting" until they all jiggle. Delete every app that is stuck waiting. Sign out of the iTunes and App Store. Reboot your i-device. Log back in to the iTunes and App Store, go to the purchased section of the App Store app and re-download the apps you want to install.

    I did that, and I had to restore it to factory settings..... which means I am scared my old backup might not work...

    I also had this problem. while connected to itunes on the pc.....in the general setting under "itunes wi-fi sync" on the phone click "sync now". On my phone all but 3 apps were restored. I immediately synced again and those three apps were then also restored. good luck!

    Sorry to resurrect a two-year-old thread, but I stumbled across this because I had the same problem, and I came up with a way to fix it!

    1. Open the iTunes folder on your computer and look for the folder called “iTunes Media”. Open it.

    2. Inside “iTunes Media” is a folder called “Mobile Applications”. Open it.

    3. Inside “Mobile Applications” are all your iOS apps. Delete the problem app(s) from the folder.
    (Note: you can zip the app/apps first, if you’re afraid to delete it/them outright.)

    4. Open iTunes and switch to “My Apps” (or “Apps”, depending on the version).

    5. Delete the problem app(s) from iTunes.

    6. Go to your iOS device and attempt to delete the problem app(s).
    (Note: don’t worry if it doesn’t work.)

    7. On your computer, go to the App Store and re-download the problem app.

    8. Make sure the newly re-downloaded app is set to sync with your iOS device.

    9. Sync.

    I can’t guarantee this will work for everyone, but it worked for me!
