    Apps won't download

    I've been unsuccessfully trying to download some Apps from the App Store and while the progress bar says it is 'Working' nothing happens.

    I also get a screen prompt, asking me to log on to my Hotmail account, which I don't really want to do, as I have Yahoo email.

    So is it a requirement to log on to your Hotmail account, in order to download these Apps?

    You do have to be logged into the account you set up 10 with. In my case it's a Hotmail account,
