    Firstly, the user has to confirm if the application is compatible on the phone to which it is being downloaded. Then if the user is trying to download a paid application, then the credit card information should be cross checked. The user can also try to cancel and restart the download. Another step that the user can do is to check if the phone has the required connectivity, i.e. data connectivity or wireless connectivity. If it still does not work, the user can restart the phone and check. For the user to download an app, he has to successfully sign into Google Talk. The customer can also check if the cache is cleared or not.

    There might be two reasons for this problem to Occur,

    1) The App is not compatible enough with the Android version of Yours.
    2)The App is not properly designed or coded and it consists of Bugs.

    The App is not compatible enough with the Android version of Yours.

    First read about the App and find it whether the App can be compatible with your Android version, Not all apps are compatible enough to install in all versions. Also Check what are the additional files required in order to get that app run in your device.

    The App is not properly designed or coded and it consists of Bugs.

    There are "N" Number of Apps available in Google Android Market, I remind you that not all the Apps are Good enough to install. Many of the Apps are with Bugs. you need to read the users review and Rankings to figure out which are the best ones.

    you must clarify that the application that is downloaded in android phone is supported by android or not.
    If the app is a paid app then first check that your money is transferred successfully or not.
    Check if your phone has connective enabled or not.
    You must have activated the network connection.
    After checking the cancel the downloading & once again start download.
    If still problem persists then restart your phone .
    You can also check if the cache is cleared or not.

    Sometimes downloading of apps from PLAY STORE stucks due to week internet network your insufficient internal storage too.
    If you are downloading through your mob using your own google account it couldn't be a case of compatibility, cause PLAY STORE automatically detects your device and only compatible apps are shown.

    Restart your phone and again try to download the app.

    FRIEND,

    There can be many reasons behind these and they can be like:

    Your internet connection is not strong and it gets lost in the middle and you are not able to download
    the application.

    The other reason can be like that you haven't paid with the correct account and that's why it get
    lost in the middle.

    The other reason is that the application is not compatible to your android phone so it doesn't gets downloaded.

    GOOD LUCK.

    Hi ! Try to turn off and restart your phone or go to Settings. In that enter into Applications. Then go to Manage Applications where you just go to 'All' tab which is at the top then scroll downward . you will see "Market". Press it. After entering Market noe press 'clear data' . Finally just reboot your phone and try to download again. This should help..!

    It is due to interruption in the network signal. You must wait for the signals to get back normal. You can opt for downloading the file again by cancelling the earlier file.

    Dear,
    Sometimes it happend due to Connectivity lost.
    It may be possible Because of Slow Internet Connection.
    Here if you want to Restart it,
    All you need to Do is Just Click on it from Notification bar.
    Click to Stop Download.
    It will stop. Now you can Start it again by following the same Process again which you have Done for the Downloading of that file
    just before
    .
    Pleasure to help you..!!
