I have a sudden, weird problem...


Wonder if you could help me please?
I don't know where to exactly post this....
But I updated my phone yesterday to 8.1.1.
All is great, and today I have slowly been installing apps back onto my phone, from the AppStore.
All was fine until about 2 hours ago, when suddenly I can no longer install games.
It seems to download them, but gives an error right at the end of the installation.
"Unable to download app.. (App name) Could not be installed at this time"

Please, any ideas?

I get this from time to time

First make sure it isn't something simple:

Make sure you have plenty of space abailable on your device.
Make sure you have an active internet connection.
Restart your device by hoeing down the power and home button until you get the apple logo.

Usually restarting the device will allow proper installation.
