Have you tried to restart your device? Also, make sure you are logged in to the store with your Apple ID and current password.

Is your in file gift card or credit card up to date? Is the app you're attempting to download in the realm of those that are restricted on your device?

Who are you talking to? This thread is almost a year old. What do you see when you try to download the app? Do you get a pop up? What happens?

the same thing is happening to me. i had to delete it and I've been trying to re-download it for the past couple of weeks now and all it tries to download but the circle will stop moving and the cloud with the arrow pops up again. I've also tried making a new apple account but it's still not working.

Delete it, then do a hard reset.
Hold the top or side power/sleep button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release.

Then try to download it again.
