The application downloading continuously again and again Is quite annoying and quite common whether you are using a Data plan(Mobile Data) or Wireless(Wi-Fi). I had faced the same problem when updating the TrueCaller app on my Android device(4.1.2).The app had installed almost 4-5 times and all the time it installed only 65-70% and also wasted a lot of mobile data.My suggestion is the internet configuration is not proper or there is low network in your area.
For the problem to understand there's a small concept of data transfer in the internet.
In the internet there is two basic steps of data transfer
1)Uplink (up arrow) .
2)Downlink(the down arrow).
First the request will be sent to the server through an uplink. Next the server responds by sending the data through the downlink(in the form of packets).
You can see this when you are browsing the net there is alternative downlink and uplink of data and packets are transferred internally(you cannot see which packet is transferred and when but only confirm if all are received through a successful login or complete download).For this you will require a good network around you
If any one packet is lost/missing ( during downlink or uplink) then the play store keeps trying to update the app until you reach 100% of installation and you cannot stop the update until and unless you boot your device or click stop(Sometime even stop does not function) or even close your mobile data.
- For this switch off the connection(Mobile Data/Wi-Fi) for a while .
- Make sure all the settings are correctly configured.(Plan is active,
having appropriate balance ,good network reach etc.)
- Then switch on Mobile Data wait for the connection to be
established and check for an app whether it is installing or not. If yes then you can update you app which was getting re-installed every time.
If you still face the problem then in the app page scroll to the bottom where you will find a support mail id and contact them with your problem as well as a screen shot.
Once the app is updated then you shall not face any
problem regarding constant re-install in the.
