    How come some apps never completely download. For example the update for "maps" has never fully down loaded the update. Everytime I go to the market it starts the same process over and over again. Am I doing something wrong?

    Try going into applications from the settings and uninstall updates and clear cache. Most times this will fix your issue.
    Let us know how things turn out.

    This issue is typically caused by low system memory (which us why, as one poster mentioned, clearing cache and data can help).

    To sherri, I think you misunderstand how the AppBrain Fast Web Installer works. It doesn't "send" apps to your phone. It uses what's called "push" send a small data packet to your phone, which Android will read and see it belongs to Fast Web Installer and pass it to that app, who then reads the data which tells it to start a market download automatically. So, having this app does not and cannot resolve the OP's issue, because it's only automating the exact process of him/her going to the market and trying to download something. They will just run into the same never-ending download issue either way.

    Clear cache and clear app data and uninstall apps you don't use or need anymore to free up system memory to resolve this issue.
