    This is something I've never seen before. I downloaded Vshare to see what it was all about and downloaded the first app. It ended up not working so I wanted to delete everything, I deleted both the profile of Vhsare and the app from it, but when I wanted to delete the app itself by tapping the "X" over the icon, it doesn't want to.
    The app has the appearance that it's about to download (greyed out) but when I tap to delete it, it doesn't.

    How can I fix this?

    Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage

    you should be able to see all of your apps there. tap on the one you want to delete and it should give you the option.

    For iCloud Storage, it shows up there but only gives me the option to back it up or not.
    For the regular usage, it doesn't show up there at all.

    If you sync with a computer you should be able to get rid of it there and then sync to iTunes.

    Doesn't let me do that either. I can see the app on there but there is no "X" over it to delete it.

    Will it allow you to remove it from the apps to sync?

    It's not on that list.

    Is there any grayed out app icon with perhaps no name or some weird name that shows up there in device storage?
