    I downloaded 2 "sticker packs" (Accuweather and ESPN). For the life of me I can't figure out how to use them. When I'm in iMessages, I click on the app store icon, i see my sticker pack, but when I touch it nothing happens. Seems to be completely non-functional. Does anyone know how I can delete these out of iMessages since they don't seem to be working?

    Go back into the store and under manage and you can turn them off. To delete them, its the same as any other application. Hold down until the X shows up.

    Are you holding down on the sticker until it 'peels' off the screen, then dragging it to the message area, or are you not even getting that far?

    Accuweather and ESPN you don't have to do that. If you just tap it it automatically goes to the text area

    I had the same issue. All my 3rd party iMessage apps showed a logo and nothing else when I would swipe to each one of them in the lower window area.

    After reading this thread, and watching some videos on how they're supposed to work, I messed around with them and found that they're essentially not working.

    After toggling them on and off, I eventually I found that I had to delete the normal app on my deivice and reinstall it. Once I did that and went back to the app in iMessage, one by one they would start working again.

    So it looks like there's some type of bug with the 3rd party apps and the way they're loading in iMessage.

    I've noticed a few other bugs with iMessage when I rotate from portrait to landscape.

    None of this is surprising as iOS 10 is so new and iMessage received a massive over haul.

    Stickers will do that regardless...

    When you open it, is it just blank and won't do anything or are the stickers themselves not wanting to cooperate?

    That didn't work on my mine. When you tap them nothing happens. I ended up deleting them per the instructions in this post. I'm pretty sure my life won't change much if I'm not able to attach stickers to my text messages! :)
