This is getting more frequent. I am connected via wifi, I get an update notice, I click on install, some of the apps may install fine, but then one freezes and locks up all of the others. I have tried doing a reset, shutting down the App Store app, turning off the wifi. I can't figure out how to get it to restart.


Yes, I know I can take care of it by connecting to my computer and updating with iTunes, but that's not always a solution. I travel, and the iPad travels with me, the Mac does not. If the app update freezes, the app is unusable, and that is unacceptable.

iPad 2, iOS 5.0.1
