Download Problems With Android Market Experienced, Some Fixed

Some problems downloading apps from the Android Market in the last few days have been experienced widely, followed yesterday by problems for a wider audience. We received reports of problems with the market earlier this week in the forums, but yesterday a tweet from AndroidDev announced that they believe that any issues downloading apps have been fixed.

The problem was that when attempting to download apps, the downloads would not start, followed by a timeout daying something like "download unsuccessful" or the download would go on pause.

Below is the complete statement from the AndroidDev account:

Market download issue seems resolved. Problem started around noon PDT, lasted a few hours. Sorry about that.

There was no statement regarding what caused the problems, but there are theories circulating that the problems might revolve around the imminent release of Gingerbead, and the possible addition of PayPal as an app payment option.

If you are still experiencing problems with the Android Market, sound off in the comments.

  • Hmmm, I wonder if the download issues somehow are tied to the rumoured PayPal rollout and Market upgrade.

    Well, it's Sunday evening, and Android Market is still down. Interesting: I had 10 apps updating this morning, 3 of them updated without any problems, 7 got stuck and are stuck ever since. Good to know it's not just me, I'm glad I checked before trying to look for the cause... This is how I stumbled upon AndroidPIT, by googling "Andoroid Market Problems Latest" ;-)
