pause iphone app download Did you know you can pause any application download or update on the iPhone and iPod Touch? This is great when you’re in a bandwidth bind or have low bars of reception.

* Pause the download/update by just tapping on the app’s icon while the download is going
* You’ll know the download is paused because the name will change to ‘Paused’ (see screenshot)
* Tap the icon again to resume the download or update

You learn something new everyday! I’ll bet this tip works for the iPad too, but since they aren’t in the wild yet we don’t know for sure.
