    I downloaded & installed the IMDb app from android market on my SGS. When I go to the Downloads section of the Market, I see a (infinite) progress bar on IMDb app, status shows it is currently installing. However, the app is already installed & works fine.

    Now, the biggest problem is that I can't uninstall it because it is constantly in "installing" mode. Restarting the phone didn't help.

    Please let me know how I can get rid of this app.

    After surfing more online forums, I found that this is a defect with Android Marketplace app & has little to do with the actual app being installed.

    The instructions provided in the following thread resolved my issue:

    KeePassDroid installation is stuck at "Installing..." - Android Market Help

    To summarize:

    * Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications
    * Select Market app
    * Clear cache & uninstall updates

    The same happened with me on HTC Desire Froyo and Market 2.0.7.
    I uninstalled the market, so now it stopped the installation of Wefi stuck in the installation infinite loop.
