Problem downloading Windows 8 apps

I got a Lenovo Thinkpad 2 tablet this week and, like most people, the first thing I did was try to load up a bunch of apps from the Windows Store. Unfortunately, all the apps I tried to install got stuck either in the ‘downloading’ or ‘pending’ status.

After a bit of searching, there are several suggested remedies, but none of them worked for me. In the end the solution seemed to be as simple as making sure the system clock had the correct time (mine was a few hours behind).

Once the system clock was correct, my apps downloaded and installed correctly.
