You are most probably downloading from the Android Market right? If so, try going to your Application Manger (Phone Settings> Application Manager) Look for Market, Open It and then click Clear Data - What that does is clear any cache that may be saved up (This can usually cause such issues down the line) Once down, try downloading again - You will have to sign into Google App Mart again, but this is normal. If Unsuccessful, apologies and good luck

How do you install apps on Android?
The following applies to any app that you might want to install on your Android tablet.
There are a few ways to go about this. The easiest is, of course, the Android Market itself. But it's quickly finding competition in the likes of the Amazon Appstore. And there are smaller third-party app stores as well, though they haven't necessarily caught on as much as you'd think.
The Android Market
The Android Market is the easiest way to install new Android apps. It should already be installed on your phone or tablet. If it's not, chances are you have one of those (really) cheap Android tablets, and it didn't meet Google's approval. That doesn't mean you can't install new apps, though, and we'll talk more about that in a minute.
Android Market To use the Android Market, you'll need to be signed in with a Google account. Chances are you did this when you first set up the phone. But if not, you can add a Google account to your phone (and even sign up for one at the same time) straight from your phone. Go to Settings>accounts to do so.
Once you're logged in, you'll be able to browser the Android Market, purchase apps, or download free apps. The Android Market also is where you'll update apps you've already loaded. Purchasing apps is done a couple of ways.
One is through Google checkout. You give it a credit card number, and it manages the transactions for you.
Another way is through carrier billing. If you're on Sprint, AT&T or T-Mobile you can charge apps to your phone bill.
There are also a couple ways to browse the Android Market. You'll mostly likely do it from your phone. But if you're at a computer, you can browser, purchase and install apps from the Android Market web portal. It's at www.market.android.com.
Fun fact about the Android Market: Once you've purchased an application, you can download it onto as many phones as you have. Need more space on your phone? Uninstall an app and put it back on later if you need it again, at no additional charge. To install from the Android Market on your phone
Choose an app.
To install, tap "Free" (If it's a paid app, you'll tap "Purchase"
You'll be asked to accept permissions -- this shows you what the app can access on your phone. Hit yes, and the app will download and install.
Note: You can cancel a download as it's happening. For paid apps, you can request a refund within 15 minutes. To install apps from the Android Market
Go to market.android.com from a web browser.
Pick an app. Hit the install button.
You'll be asked to accept permissions, and choose which device you want to install on (if you have more than one).
Look over the permissions and hit the install button again. The app will magically be downloaded and installed on your phone.
The Amazon Appstore
A relative newcomer is the Amazon Appstore. It's similar to the Android Market in that you'll have to have an account with Amazon to use it. Unlike the Android Market, the Amazon Appstore likely didn't come pre-installed on your phone, so you'll need to download it.
Once it's on your phone, you can download apps directly from it or, like the Android Market, from a web portal. App downloaded through the Amazon Appstore will be updated through the Amazon Appstore and not through the Android Market.
The following tutorial video will take you through the entire process better than my written words.
Did your tablet come with the market app already installed? If so go to
settings>Accounts & sync. You must use the original username and
password of the Google account (if you don't have a gmail account set
one up and make a note of the username and password. You don't actually
have to use Gmail for your email activities, but you do need one to set
your tablet up properly for market usage!) used when you set up your
android tablet. If (as I suspect) your tablet was not cleared by the
original owner before they sold it on Ebay, you'll need to restore the
tablet to its factory settings and start as if it just came out of the
1. Go to Settings 2. Go to Applications 3. Go to Manage applications 4. Go to all tabs 5. Gp to "Market" applications 6. "Clear Cache" then "force stop" - DO NOT CLEAR DATA 7. Now go to "google service framework" applications 8. "Clear data" then "force stop" 9/ Reboot your machine/
HTC Inspire 4G Smartphone comes with android 2.2 (froyo) operating system. You can always download applications from android market . You have freewares and also paid apps here. Easy to download and install. Try this link on your phone https://market.android.com/
It may be because of the network as most of the application on android market are of more than 2 mb. Try downloading a simple application with 300 kb or 500 kb if its gets downloaded then its means you need wifi or 3G network.
Else try and download task killer and kill few unwanted running application to restore CPU memory.
Your phone is an HTC with the Android OS. I'm not familiar with the newest apps from Android Market for your purpose. However, if an app is available that will work for what you want it to do, it would be found on Android Market.
I would however caution you to download Lookout Mobile Security FIRST before you download any apps to your phone.
Hi Andrew, I have the exactly same problem, started last night... i almost did hard reset and then i see that you the same problem on the same day... maybe it's a "Market" issue??
i also have two updates available, and when i try to run the update i get the same "installation error" and the app turn to "free" instead of the "update available", when in fact the app is still there (installed)...
