    Default Anyone notice it takes a while to download apps from the Market (on the EVO)

    Sometimes it takes a good 5 minutes for the downoad to start. What gives? On the Pre it was instant. Why does it take a while for an app to actually start downloading?

    when you select download, sometimes nothing happens for a couple of minutes and then it queues in and downloads it.

    Sorry, I personally have no problem with downloading apps from the Market on my Evo; it's takes 10 seconds most for it to be downloaded and installed.

    It's so fast for me that most times, the app is downloaded and installed before I can hit the home screen button and swipe down the notifications curtain (or whatever it's called).

    No problem ! Try loading an app from BB app world now that's slow with a 10 min. re boot.

    Mine have been super fast, even with 3G at the lowest bar. A lot faster than my iPhone was.

    I've noticed the same thing. It does seem to take a while to download apps from the market compared to my Hero. I've tested this on WiFi and 3g data. It's not a huge deal for me but I have noticed this.

    Mine are done by the time I pulled down the curtain and click on them.

    If its on wifi it could be a hardware firewall issue, i had a Moto CLIQ XT for a few weeks and had trouble downloading on wifi, enabled DMZ mode on my XT, and that fixed it. I do not have that issue on my EVO 4G, but i also have a new router now

    It's not just you OP.

    Your phone needs a forced check-in while it's on Wifi. Unfortunatley I have no idea how to do it on the Evo yet lol.

    Eventually, one of the times while you're using the market you'll see your 3G flash and upload even while wifi is connected. Then wifi works as well as 3G. The Market needs to verify the network you're on is what's going on.
