I've noticed that downloading from the Android Market can be hit or miss on wifi, but switching to 3G will almost always see the app(s) downloaded immediately. Sometimes I have to "Cancel Download" and then touch "Install" again...and it begins immediately. Or maybe I'm just impatient. 


Anyone else see this?

I have noticed some strange behavour in the market downloads.

What you described sometimes happens to me, but it is generally when I am downloading a number of items at the same time (if two are downloading, the third generally won't download).

patatrat: I've noticed by the time I get to the 3rd app, the first one may be installing....at which point a lock appears to be placed on some resource and you can't interact / update it further until the lock is removed..(5-10 secs) which it is after the app has completed the install. Any chance that covers it?

Could be. I'm guessing that your issue is different though.

I do wish the market had a 'update all' feature, or a way to select which ones to update, then it just went off and downloaded and installed each one by itself. Currently, apps are changing almost daily, and I'm finding it a little annoying to constantly update them.

I haven't had a problem to date. I select the app I want to install and it just seems to kick off. Selected 5 or so in pretty quick succession a few days ago and they all just charged down over wifi.
