A common mistake when downloading apps is not having internet connection. Check first if there is internet connection available. If there is internet connection but is weak, try restarting the internet terminal then connecting to it again.

Using Other Online Apps

Using other online apps while downloading an app slows down the download speed. This is even worse when playing online games because such apps consume a lot of data. Make sure to close all applications that might be running in the background when downloading apps.

Insufficient Data Space

Insufficient data space
Check if there is sufficient data space in the device before downloading an app. Try to free up space for the app by deleting apps that are not used anymore.
Buying SD cards that has a large data capacity is also a good option.
