    I don't know why I seem to have this problem on every phone during certain times. I've tried clearing the storage for google play and google play services and rebooting the phone. I was trying to download something a few days ago after I did all of that. The app finally downloaded after about 30 minutes pending. I've checked my phone isn't installing a whole bunch of updates right now... So, what do I do?

    I have basically given upon Google.

    If this has been an ongoing issue, then perhaps it is time to broaden your horizons.

    First, be sure that Auto-Update is OFF in the settings for Google Play Store.

    Next, try these other excellent app stores, and see what you think.

    I use them all, and dont miss Screwgle at all.
    These all allow the downloading of previous versions, so you are not locked in with the newest version- like you are with Google.
    (I will post links to these from a different device in just a moment.)
