    When I search the AppStore, I normally am in either the "Featured," "Top Charts" or "Genius" tabs (on the bottom of the page. Then, in the upper right hand side there is a text box (with a magnifying glass) where you type in your search term(s) or app name. Is this where you are putting in "accuweather" to find the app?

    Marilyn,and gresh14,
    that is not where I am searching from. I don't seem to have any icon that says App Store, that's what i'm trying to access.
    so i opened iTunes store and Apple Store, but nothing there. How do I get the icon for the App Store???

    If you've turned off installing and deleting apps in settings, the AppStore icon will not show on the home screen.
    To check, go to Settings>General>Restrictions.

    If installing and deleting are turned off and you turn them back on.
