    Is there an app like appzapper for iOS that will delete an app and ALL it's associated files?

    I updated the HULU plus app on my iPad a couple of months back and it had a bug that would only let me play one video then the next time I went to play a video it would freeze.

    Anyway, they finally updated the app which supposedly fixed the bugs but it's still does the same thing; after a fresh re-install I can play one video but the next time the app freezes and I have to delete/re-install again.

    When I reinstall the app, it automatically signs me back into my account which leads me to believe that when I "delete" it, it still leaves some files on my iPad which could be where the problem is. Also, the new version also works fine on my iPhone and no one I know seems to be having a problem with the app on their ipad so I don't think it's a bug. The only thing I can think to do is to do a complete restore but thought I would check to see if anyone has any other suggestions. I have had a look for any files with iFile but can't find anything. :(

    Have you tried a respring/restart (do both) after deleting the app? That might help.

    Yeah try a restart and also try removing the app during a sync on iTunes, if that fails try a restore.

    Apps on iOS shouldn't leave much behind, there is no app zapper equivalent on iOS. 3rd party apps cannot uninstall other apps.
