Howdy all

Try tapping the App, so that it changes to Paused instead of Waiting, then tap it again to resume the install.  Make sure you don't have any paused downloads in other apps either, like the App Store or iTunes Store. If that doesn't do it, try resetting or restoring the iPhone.

    Thanks for the help. It was a podcast in iTunes that had failed to completly download. I had tried tapping the app without success and even deleted some that were "waiting", never thought to check iTunes. Thanks again for the help
