    When google releases new versions of its apps in the market instead of in an ota guess what happens?

    Everyone starts downloading from the market at once from all over the world. This causes bandwidth issues and hangups. All kinds of rediculous stuff. Maps is a pretty big app and youtube. As more and more people get android phones, these kind of apps that everyone has will have download issues and mess up the market. Its best to wait for a day or two I have decided. This is why we were able to get decent downloads at night and not the day. This will affect all downloads because they all have to go through authentication and such checking your google accounts.
    There are a lot of sub issues but it all comes down to a clogged cyber pipe.

    +1 ^^^ this. I have always replied to threads about market issues in a similar manner. The market is totally dependent of it's ability to handle the bandwidth demand. And not only that, it's on a computer (or so) somewhere and I know that sometimes a server just gets so loaded up, it just slows down and/or stops.

    Yes, games are usualy larger files and angry birds is a pretty big game. In the middle of an update day you can barely download anything. Even if you use wifi it won't do much better. Heck I found all those dead downloads in my sdcard download folder make sure you clear them out. When big updates come just be patient till the next day, the old app version will still work :)
