    I have about 1.2 gb of space left on this iPad 2, maybe this is the problem because my BBC NEWS, SkyFire, etc, over five apps re simply not on my iPad, I did a search and still don't see the, and I tried to re install them from the iTunes store but no luck, the apps show up as already installed, I went. Step further by erasing the apps from my iTunes library and re syncing, still the iTunes store shows them as installed, any ideas how to get them back do let me know guys, I will try removing some mp3s to see if this changes today , meantime thanks in advance

    Are these apps likely to have age restrictions? Have a look in 'Settings', 'General', 'Restrictions', 'Allowed Content', 'Apps' and see what age restrictions, if any, you have set.

    Each app has a notional age restriction and if the age restriction is on these apps don't even show up as icons on your Home page. Some of the age restrictions can seem bizarre because, if an app can access the Internet, it can - in theory - access adult content and therefore will have a fairly 'severe' age restriction.

    I think your right, I just played with those settings a week ago, I thought they would help get rid of pop up adverts, some if these adverts are sneaky, game add ons you buy, app upgrades, etc, I'm almost certain your right, the only thing now I like to know since I just reset restrictions to all ages is how to get the icons back? I still don't see them

    Thanks

    Glad you got it fixed!

    I never ever sync my iPad - I have a complete aversion to iTunes!

    I connected my iPad to my PC Day 1 - had no choice! Since then I've never connected them again.

    My iPad is quite happy living a monastic life of complete isolation!
