    When I try to download an app it just hangs, with the dl status bar moving left to right but doesn't dl anything. Tried rebooting, no avail. Is my app broke, or is the market down at the moment?

    The Market is notoriously fickle. I had the same issue on Sunday trying to update one of my apps. I uninstalled it, immediately redownloaded it and the installation went without a hitch. You can also try (a) deleting the Market cache and/or data via Settings/Applications, (b) signing in to GTalk, or (c) sacrificing three white virgin cockerels when the moon is full. All have an equal chance of success... it's an infuriatingly-vague problem. :(
