    On an old phone, I have had some success loading compatible apps from the Play Store.

    In some cases, the downloads just sit and wait, like for days. The app eventually downloaded and installed, but it took a long time. Of course I tried stopping and starting over and rebooting the phone.

    The phone has been cleaned of all extra apps and files. It's just old and slow.

    Are there any other things that I can do to get apps to install more quickly on this phone?

    Which phone?
    Which version of android?
    Which carrier?

    What part is the slow part: download or install?

    Are you sure the app is designed for the old phone and the old version of android?
    Are you sure your connection speed is consistent?... wifi is my preferred radio for downloading, but if I know one is faster or more consistent I will force that one.

    If you see "pending", it means that another app is being updated. Play Store allows only a single connection at a time. (I just verified that the other day - I though it was limited at 2 or 3 - it's not, it's limited at 1.)
