A while back I had the "Jaws Revenge" game on my phone, deleted it soon after. Ever since then, every so often, I get this message from the app store on my iPhone 4S, even though I'm not attempting to download it.

It almost seems like there's a download queue somewhere and this app and maybe others are stuck in it?

Any idea how to clear this up? Any here every run into this before?



Thanks very much in advance,
Chris

I haven't had this same error, but I've had apps get stuck downloading updates, and even when I cancel them in itunes they still try to download. Delete it from your machine maybe not just the iphone?

It's happened to me. Sometimes something can go wrong and the app will never download.

Eventually I think my app in question pushed out a new update that worked. It took at least a month though.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.
