Is it for any applications, or just one?   Try holding the home/power buttons until the device turns off and then turn it back on and try again, as that clears out some things that might be causing issues, and gives a fresh start with the download :)


It is very possible the server is having trouble too, as it is still a beta service and the server is being worked on :)  So just try again at a different time of the day and it could work then :)

maybe try opening the file on PC ...

after you  open on your PC , try installing using your PC via iTools or any program related . :)

hope that helps

*the file you downloaded in ATM is located in var/mobile/downloads . :)
