    I uninstalled an app (AppSniper) and went back to download it off the App Store and it is stuck on the "INSTALLED" button (I can't click the button), so I cant re-download it. Is there any way to fix this?

    Still doesnt work, I've synced it and un-synced it, it just doesnt install the app...

    Should I delete the whole app off my computer then re-install it on the computer and try again (the app was already on there when I transfered my purchases before)

    if anything, Im just gonna have to hope and wait that an update comes out, maybe then it will unfreeze the app and let me install it again. Is there a way to downgrade an app version?

    would restoring my iPod would take everything off including all my music, videos, app, and saved contents for my games (never done it before)? Or is there a way just to restore the apps?

    I've had this problem before. Restart your device by pressing the home and power button simultaneously while the app is installing.

    Try this:

    Click the iDevice tab to the left, and while connected, click the application tab. Find the app, and if it's checked, uncheck it and sync. Then check it again and sync. Maybe that'll work.

    already done it

    such a weird bug, maybe contact Apple about it? Not sure what they would say other than restore my iPod. Ill wait a couple days anyways, AppSniper is crashing for everyone so I sense they will make an update asap

    The developer is not responding to emails for some reason.
