I downloaded Freecell from the App store on a brand new iPhone 5. Fresh load, no restore from iTunes.
While the app was downloading, I held it until it jiggled then moved it into the Games folder. I did this all of the time with iOS 5.1.1 on my iPad 3.
That part went ok. The app is there and the game works fine.
However, there is now a ghost icon of the app on my home screen that has the loading progress bar on it. It jiggles, and I can move it, but there is no X for it. I can move it to the back screen or shove it in my "Useless apps" folder, but it won't go away. I did a reset where I hold the power/home button until it powers down. The only thing that did was clear the ghost progress. It was about 90% through, now it shows just starting.
Any clues? This looks like an iOS 6 bug. I know iOS 6 works differently. With iOS 5, when the app finished loading, the jiggling would stop automatically, which I liked. Saved me from having to press the home button. Now it continues to jiggle.
