    How about deleting the app and adding it back again. That will work. You might need to re-enter and preferences, though.

    I’m having the same problem. I tried to install two free updates, and they both froze in “waiting” status. I tried to delete them but the black circle with the “x” in it you touch to delete an app does not appear on those apps now, so there’s no way to delete them. I tried just re-downloading the apps, but in the app store, they show as “installed”, so I can’t do that either. Anyone know how to fix this?

      Have you tried syncing with your computer and then using the iTunes interface to delete the apps?

    I have had the same problem. Power off your iPhone (press at same time the front button and the power button on top, press for a few seconds until an apply symbol shows). What 10 seconds and then power up by pressing the same buttons at the same time for a few seconds until the apple logo appears again. The app icons formerly showing waiting should now be updated. cheers, Mario

    I tried to update Facebook and it got stuck in ‘waiting…’ I’ve tried everything and it’s not working! This is so frustrating!
