    Weird icon - please have a quick look at it

    Anyone any idea where this icon is from? It does not do anything, I cannot delete it and it's definitely new... The top one obviously...
    Thanks for you help!

    Hey! I think I saw you over on macrumors with this. I think it's the New York times...at least that's what it looks like. What happens when you open it?

    From what I've read on the web, that's a ghost icon. Try doing a restart or a reset to see if it'll disappear. To do (apologies if you know):

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    If that doesn't help, try this last step...

    Reset: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears. Once the logo appears, release the buttons. After a time, your homescreen will appear. Please note that it may take some time for the Apple logo to appear or for your homescreen to appear (or both). This is normal. Eventually, the homescreen will appear.

    If that fixes it, yay. If not, holler back and we'll take another try at it.

    Yeah, sometimes it's hard to understand what happens. Weird is a good word! :)

    Still, glad to hear it's sorted. Thanks for telling us (and anyone looking for a solution to the same problem) that it's fixed. Always good to hear back, especially the success stories. :)
