iPad Game Download Problem

As above,

I've been recently encountering this really weird problem on my iPad 3. I wonder if it only happens to me.

Recently, after downloading games from WiFi or even from transferring it over to my iPad using the computer, even after the game has been fully transferred over and installed, the game app icon just goes back to saying "Waiting.." and is totally unplayable. I have to delete it and redownload it again.

It seems to always be happening to the latest game that I have downloaded.

I have no way to solve it whatsoever. This gets very irritating especially when I want to play the game after downloading it from my PC. only to find out, half way through the journey that the game somehow or another deleted itself from my iPad and stays at "Waiting.." while the app icon is blurred out.

Does anyone encounter this same problem? Even if you're not using iPad 3, if you're encountering the same problem please do let me know.

I'm using the latest iOS update on iPad 3 4G 32GB.
