    Is anyone else having issues with downloading and updating apps? After the app is downloaded it says "Can't get this info right now. Check back in a little while." It has been doing this a lot. Any ideas on how to fix it? This is on my Samsung Focus.

    I heard from my mother that is happening to her Samsung Focus. Been the last few days without being able to update an app, not sure what is going on.

    i've had trouble updating earthworm jim and pictureslab the last couple of days. Says update available, install it, but still says update available.
    I have been able to install other updates and other apps though.

    So far for me it is with the Samsung Now application. It downloads the update and then says to tap on it for more information and says it failed. I have tried power cycling the phone and it doesn't work. Guess I will try uninstalling and reinstalling.

    Same here with my focus. No problems with Free or purchased apps.
    Don't guess I could complain too much with trial apps not updating. In fact, it encouraged me to go ahead and purchase them, knowing that I liked them and they were getting updated.

Once purchased, I had to uninstall one app to get the update to take (Flux, I think), then reinstall, no problems after that.

    This app updating issue happens to me a lot. I find that if you uninstall and reinstall the app you will download the latest version. Of course you will have to redo all your settings but may be worth it if the update is an important one.

    I was seeing this when I first got my Focus a few days ago. I would just download it again and it would work.

    I noticed that there is now a message saying "This purchase will be added to your AT&T bill.." Which wasn't there when I was having downloading issues. Since this has been added, I haven't had any downloading issues.
