Can't find icon for a newly installed app.

I installed a new app, but cannot find the icon to use it!  I tried powering off the PlayBook and nothing changed.  How do I access apps that are installed, but not displayed?

Re: Can't find icon for a newly installed app.

On your Playbook, do you know you can SWIPE left and right to other app icon panels?

And you can scroll downward, to icons not shown on the screen?


Have you tried both of those?
