I can only find the purchased app by typing in the name in the very first search/type screen, but I cannot see its icon anywhere. I have the same issue with my iphone (200 plus apps).
I tried "joining/combining/merging" multiple app icon sets to no avail.
Could it be that I have too many apps to fit on the finite number of screend alloted to ipad?
Is there a way I can make the icon visible? Thanking you all in advance.
