    Please, just please, don't tell me you have. Do you? I know this can be caused by 'certain things' that I cannot mention here.

    That program has nothing to do with the app store and no I don't have it, and I don't support It at all.

    Well good then. I just know this can happen after installing that kinda stuff.

    Did you notice this happening after installing any addons, tweaks, etc?

    Disable mobilesubstrate addons, test to see if the issue is resolved. If so, enable each addon one by one until you find the culprit. If this does not work, sign out of the app store, sign out of iTunes and deauthorize machine, sign back in and reauthorize, sign back into app store, sync, test again.

    eventually it goes though..but for an example..dropbox shouldn't take but maybe a minute tops to install on a new ipad with full 4G or top notch wifi...but it took it like 30 minutes to start downloading

    Hi, for the last few months it has taken me several attempts to install Apps. Any way, by chance, I went into my Store Account details and it asked me for my credit card security pin. Since re-entering this it appears to be much better

    I wound up swapping the iPad out for another. I couldn't figure it out. Even after a restore.

    I have no idea it was doing really weird things. Being brand new though I definitely took advantage of swapping it out.
