    Hello

    Well long story short
    I erased my twitter app by mistake will trying to arrange my icons , when I went to the App Store to download the app again is telling me to "open" instead of "install"app
    But I can't find the app anywhere in my phone.
    FYI: I don't back an iTunes backup, I tried the spotlight search, I have search all over my folders and I have.

    Any tips will be helpful.
    TIA

    Try restating your phone. If that doesn't work, you can try settings -> general -> reset -> reset home screen layout

    Do you have a theme? If so, search Spotlight(I know you said that you did). Look at what the icon looks like. Just a guess.

    When you search it in spotlight, does it pull it up?

    Nothing comes out.
    When I type the hole name and nothing comes like it the app was not install.

    Are you using any tweak to hide icons? (For example, sbsetttings). Check to see if your icon is somehow hidden

    If not, you can try doing and see if iTunes detect whether the app is installed or not. Just transfer purchases to iTunes and you should be fine. If iTunes detect it installed, try using iTunes to uninstall it

    Edit: when you use the AppStore, click open. Does it open the app? If not, what does clicking open do?

    I'm currently not using any app or tweak to hide apps (like sbsettings)
    When I press "open" nothing clicks

    How about using iTunes on your PC to drag the icon (from the apps tab while synced) to any open space on a page. Then, it should sync. If that fails, see if Twitter is listed as install or remove and proceed accordingly (remove then reinstall).

    Hi Caffeino

    A friend had a similar problem and found this did the trick:

    "Open the App Store app and go to the Updates tab. At the top of the updates is a “Purchased” menu. From there, you can redownload nearly any app you’ve ever purchased, including many apps that are no longer available."

    ...which was a solution she found here: http://lifeinlofi.com/2012/11/28/restore-deleted-apps-to-iphone/

    Good luck!

    Lucy

    SILLY go on general - memory usage or what ever it is
    the place Where it tells you HOW much memory each app takes
    and the info should say delete or something
    and that is how you delete it and redownload it :D
    try it
    its in the settings somewhere
    about the memory usage
