    I've done a search on these forums and google and i can see that this was a problem for a few people a few months back but I've only started noticing it recently when my Market app updated to the new version.

    Does anyone else find that its really slow? Some apps it downloads no problems but other apps it hangs on "loading" forever and nothing happens.

    I've recently convinced a couple of friends to convert from iphone to android and now the market is working at 10% of its potential, a little embarrassing for the android community.

    Anyone know if they're working on a fix its sooo frustrating!

    We're using Samsung GS2, 2.2, have 3G icon up the top, full signal.

    Youre using a GS2 but why are you on Android 2.2? Those things shipped out with 2.3? Anyway, upgrade, the new market works lightning fast on 2.3... Also clear the cache and data for the market.
