    If you can't find it on any of your homescreens or app folders or via the spotlight search screen (swipe your first home screen to the right), then is it hidden by Settings > General > Restrictions > Installing Apps being set 'off' ?


    If not then have you tried a reset to see if you can find it after the iPad has restarted ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot. You could also do Settings > General > Reset > Reset Home Screen Layout which will re-arrange your apps and might make it easier to find

    Go to Settings>General>Restrictions. You have restrictions turned on - you may have disabled downloading apps in which case the app store icon will disappear from the screen.


    If that is not the case, swipe from screen to screen and look for the app.
