I purchased a Playbook this weekend and downloaded a couple of apps. They appeared in 'My World', but no icons were displayed on my screen.

I re-booted the machine and they still did not appear.

Is there anything else i could try to get the apps to work?


Many thanks



Please try not to post same problem on multiple threads.  The advice you got on the other thread from nik"master" to uninstall them was plain wrong . Make sure you go to MyWorld, find the uninstalled list, reinstall.


Then they WILL be on one of your home screens, left right up or down, just look for them, like the previous post said.

Re: Downloaded Apps

Apologies for the duplicate post, but I decided to start a new thread as the info on this thread didn't sort the problem. Obviously, two posts on the same subject is an inconvenience to the forum so rest assured I promise it won't happen again. I will suitably punish myself for the misdameanour!
