Why am I having problems downloading apps from the App Store?


iMore Question

Having problems down loading apps from the App Store.

I've just purchased a iPad air my first mobile device.
Started down loading apps from the AppStore mainly games without any problems.(taking advantage of free apps so I haven't spent or wasted any money)
Successfully downloaded 23 apps inclueding Netflix and then suddenly every time I try to download all I get is a grey symbol with circles and lines with the name of the app or a message stating waiting.
Well I have been waiting 10+ days for most of the.
Also it was suggested by who ever suggest these things to upgrade 3 of the apps that I had successfully download did as advised now these apps are in a state of waiting 24 hours so far.
Can anybody advise me on what the problem may be and how to resolve it?

What iPad are you using? Is it updated to the latest OS? Settings, general, software update? Have your restarted the iPad?
