Application Icon doesn’t appear

I have an app that was developed in JDE 4.2.1 and work fine.

I want to install this app to one BB 9500. First I have to install the OS (so I downloaded it from Vodafone Germany - this is Vodafone BB) and Desktop Manager who came with the phone. So I installed the app, but don’t appear in main menu, applications, and games. If I check in advanced options->applications the app is listed. What I’m doing wrong?

Hi and Welcome!


Congratulations on developing an app for the Storm! There are many who will be happy to know that such efforts are underway!


As for where the icon went -- that will involve some digging. Beyond those you've looked in, also look in Downloads (and any other folders that may exist). Also turn on any hidden icons -- from the home screen, press the BB key (the hard key next to the green phone key -- twice if you are in portait with the limited icon list displayed) and select Show All.

Occam's Razor nearly always applies when troubleshooting technology issues!

It should be in the downloads, if you have hidden your downloads folder just hit the BB menu button and choose "Show all"
