Tip: “Attention Required Press Here”

SplashScreenImage Old

I recently released ‘the ‘Ambient Soundscape’ App onto the WP7 Marketplace and within a day the only bit of feedback I had was a 1 star rating and a note saying that the user was unhappy he was getting this message!

So what should you do if you get this message when you are trying to download an App (and not just Ambient Soundscape – though I would be happy if you wanted to give that a try).

Probably You ‘Press Here’ only to get the following message:

“Connect to a WiFi network or connect your phone to your PC to complete the download”

But even if you are connected to a WIFi network you are basically stuck in a loop.

Bah! (as Desperate Dan might exclaim)

The answer is, instead of pressing on ‘Press Here’ you need to ‘press & hold’ – this will bring up a submenu allowing you to either delete the download or retry – usually retrying will begin the download again.

Oh, and if you decide to try  ‘Ambient Soundscape’, and like it, please leave me some nice feedback!
