Have two icons for the same app on home screen. Not jail broken.

    Just noticed this today. I can't initiate the moving of icons by holding down on the one outside the folder, although both icons launch the game.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    If I drag another icon into the icon on the right (remote app for example), then the icon inside the folder becomes a nested folder. The icon outside of the folder remains.

    Deleted app. One icon is still there and can't be removed.

    Have you tried a hard reboot by holding the power and home button at the same time? This happens every now and then with me and doing a hard reboot clears it.

    Yeah I just restarted and it's still there. I'll try syncing to iTunes when I get to my laptop.

    Not sure how to fix your issue but, on a side note, nice wallpaper :D

    Yes this has happened to me with newsstand, on 7.0.4
    I also had an empty spot taking up icon space, like an invisible icon. I restored to get rid of it. Since you haven't jailbroken your phone, restoring seems like the easiest solution.

    Try going into settings > general > usage

    Wait for it to load. Tap your app then delete

    I had the exactly same problem on my r mini and I just rebooted by pressing on both home and power button until the apple logo appears.
