    Evening all, is anyone else having problems downloading from the Market at the moment (esp. from the UK) or is it just me?

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Have been having a lot of problems recently (started at the weekend) - wifi and 3g. Hangs on 'starting download' and shortly after the little downloading arrow disappears from the notification area.

    A reboot later and the app seems to have downloaded all along - the 'new installation' icon in the notification area.

    Hi all,

    Is anyone else experiencing any issues with the Android Marketplace?

    I have tried to download Layar reality browser and it keeps saying download unsuccessful? I can open the Marketplace app and search for apps however I can't download anything?

    I've cleared the cache for the marketplace app and restarted the phone a couple of times but to no avail?

    I am trying to download the app via my gf's home network and I can use the internet as normal so I know it's not a connectivity issue with the router as such...


    Mods this is a dup thread please delete..

    A hearty welcome to the forums, fil_b.

    I've moved your Market question out of the News area and to the Android Lounge where I've merged it with two other threads bringing up that issue. ;)

    Market has a reputation for being unstable from time to time. We're seeing reports of that happening again.

    I've had trouble since yesterday, hopefully it's googles problem and not a problem with my device!

    Must be a google issue, I've re-tried to download the app but still nothing :(

    I just went in and downloaded and installed a new app from Market, fast and efficient.

    I'll try Layar browser now.

    Quick download and installation.

    Your issue could be with your device or the local network.

    Have you tried a reboot (clear the Market cache first)?

    Yea tried a reboot twice, closed the app down in Advanced task manager and cleared the app's cache...

    Any other ideas?

    The app version is 1.82 if that makes any difference?

    I'm suspicious of the network you're using. Do you have an alternative?

    Also, if you're using wifi, did you uncheck the data roaming network box in networking?

    The network is fine, I am using xbox live on it now... I can also browse the net as normal on the phone via the network...

    I'm having the same issues. It will say "starting download" but it will just stay like that, and the little download notification wont appear at all.

    Hi all.
    I got a droid incredible about 2 months ago, thru verizon. I had no trouble with the market place untill about 3 or 4 days ago. First it would say "memory full". I deleted some apps to make room. this didnt help. I thought I must have to gotten a virus. I completly rebooted my phone, deleting all my apps. Now when I try to download an app. it just starts the download, but never downloads. Tryed to go to a different market, and got the memory full message again. What's up! I read on other fourms the market place is down. Is this true? Need help. :thinking:
