    Try going to Settings>General>Usage, then scroll down the list of installed apps. When you find the one you want to delete, swipe from right to left. A red delete button should appear. Tap it and confirm in the pop up that appears.

    That doesn't work either. I tried to swipe from right to left! Instead it opens the APP and shows me the amount of storage it is occupying on the IPAD . It's not showing the delete option.

    I think I've figured it out. Go to Settings>Restrictions and check to see if the switch to delete apps is turned on.

    Now there's a stumper. The restriction setting is supposed to be there.
    How about trying this. Go to Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings, then check to see if the restrictions setting re-appears.

    I did some research and found this thread. It talks nap bout the exact problem you have. It was solved in this thread by using iTunes on your computer to restore it as a new iPad. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3114327?start=0&tstart=0

    Yu would then have to add all your apps, music, videos, etc. again.

    I think it's time to take your iPad to an Apple store and have it checked out at the Genius Bar.

    Encore...you have two threads asking for the same problem. This makes it even more confusing!

    At this time, we will close this thread. Please refer to the original thread you started in December which I have been helping you on.
