HT1349 What to when trying to download an app and get message "could not sign in, An unknown error has occurred"

What do you do when trying to download an app from App Store and get message: "could not sign in, an unknown error has occurred."

Sign out of your account, restart the iPad and then sign in again.
Settings>iTunes & App Store>Apple ID. Tap your ID and sign out. Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
Go back to Settings>iTunes & App Store>Sign in and then try again.
