I'm not sure which app it is. Nother peculiar thing has happened as well -- a xouple of my apps have repostioned themselves within the pages and even if I try to reposition them when I sync, they reset. Not sure if it is related or not.
I also have never downloaded an app to iTunes and then copied to my iPad. Not that I couldn't figure it out.

Having the same problem here. Unable to update any apps, even though my iPad says I have 29 updates waiting. I click on "Update All", the dialog box prompting me for my Apple ID and Password pops up, I enter the information, the dialog box goes away, the apps then go into a "waiting" mode, and then a second later refresh to normal. The app store shows the same 29 updates waiting.
Also tried to download new apps, and same thing. A space is created for the new apps' icon, but it never shows up, and when I look in the app store, it offers me the option to install.
I've updated the iPad iOS and reset a few times, no luck. Very annoying.

Sol it would seem that perhaps battery life had something to do with it. I tried to update the apps with <65% battery life. Once I charged the battery to >80% the apps updated without a problem.

It had nothing to do with battery life. There was an App Store issue on Apple's end yesterday from about 1-2pm CST. That was likely your problem.

I just checked my iTunes store. It was downloading a tv episode which was taking days and days. I stopped that and now I can download apps. Lesson..... Don't download movies or tv series straight to my pad....

has anyone been able to resolve the problem with updating and downloading new apps in IOS 5 or IOS 5.0.1? am now on hold with apple support but seems to be a common problem.
- resetting as a new ipad
- downloading the frozen apps and reloading
- deleting all icloud services except for data
- and yes, restarting after each of the above
noting has worked....

I, too, am having a problem with the app update stuck in "waiting". It is only certain apps, tho that are stuck. Some are updating...makes no difference if they are free or not. I've reset but it did nothing. IOS 5.0.1
