If you successfully started the download, there should be a popup notice to let you know the download is started.

Well if I get what your saying, you download things and they finish, yet they aren't in the downloads section of your app. I might venture a guess that it may be possible the apps aren't downloading to the correct folder for some reason. Have you looked with ifile to find where the .ipa files have saved? They should be in /var/mobile/documents/downloads. Otherwise the appcake app will not have them in the downloads section. If the .ipa's saved somewhere else, simply cut and paste them into the correct folder and they will be in the downloads section of the app when you look again.

I seem to have a similar problem,


I jailbroke my "new" ipad. Installed AppSync 7+ and appcake. When I download apps via appcake it does appear below the 'downloaded' tab but it won't install. It just keeps being active (rotating icon) and after a while the install button says reinstall but when I go back to my homescreen it doesnt show the newly downloaded/installed app...


I tried reinstalling appcake and appsync

rebooted my iPad several times


Hope you guys can help me.
