Does the Market app time out on you when trying to install/update apps?

Tip us?

I've noticed that sometimes I'll have to restart the phone because the Market app will just hang after I try to download or update an app. Has this happened to anyone else?

This happens to me all the time with the "new" market app on any device.

interesting. i thought using appbrain would fix it but i just get routed to the market download link. now i just use the stock app killer to close out Market then reopen it instead of rebooting.

Has happened to me as well... I just use the task manager and kill it. If it becomes a serious problem for you, just go into the app settings and uninstall updates.

Use the samsung task manager to kill market and re open it. Shortcut is to hold the home button and the access the task manager from there.
