Whenever I go to try and download an app it tells me that I have already purchased it and don't need to pay again then the download stops. I am using iOS 7. The download stops in iTunes.

enter image description here

  • What version of iOS are you running, and could you add a screenshot? Does the download stop in iTunes or on your iPad?

I've had similar problems in the past and my solutions were pretty simple.

Sign Out and Sign in iTunes & App Store, in the settings app. Sign out iTunes & App Store in Settings

Delete your iCloud and Sign in, in settings.

Make sure you select keep data and select merge when you sign back in. Delete your iCloud and re-sign in

  • Ok I tried it and it did not fix it

  • If these didn't help then you might want to call Apple. It seems that that was the plan of action for other people.

Click on the cloud symbol with the arrow pointing down. Your app, once purchased, is stored in iCloud.

  • I know that when I do it it just goes back to the symbols
