    Disappearing App Problem

    I installed Pandora on my Ipad 2 a few days ago. I set it down waiting for it to install, came back a few minutes later and the app was not there and had been deleted. When I try to reinstall it in the app store, it says it's already and installed but I don't have the app. I went on iTunes and it is checked as an app that is on my Ipad. I try dragging it and syncing it besides my other apps, but it didn't work either. I've not had this problem with any other app, any advice on how to fix this issue and get the app?

    Is it on a secondary home screen? Swipe to your left on main screen to move to secondary home screens. If main screen had no room for the icon it will create an additional home screen

    Also use spotlight search.....see if that locates it. Swipe right on home screen for spotlight search.
    Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.

    Hmmmm ........


    Go to Settings/General/Usage. Wait for applications to populate the list.

    See if pandora is there. If it is swipe right on it then delete it.

    If it isn't on the list post back here and we will nuke it in itunes

    I don't see any "Usage" option under General. Let's just nuke it.

    Is your iPad jail broken?

    If so check SBSettings to see if icon is hidden.

    How many home screens do you have? There is a limit of 11 home screens (20 apps per screen) in iOs, and if you have more apps than will fit on the home screens, you won't see the icons. I had that issue yesterday while installing apps to my wife's new iPhone. After moving a good portion of them into folders, and doing a power off/on, the extra ones showed up. They would always show up in the spotlight and in iTunes.
