    Default Missing all apps

    I have hard reset my S3 with cyanogenmod OS and now i cannot see any apps installed even Playstore is missing. But if i use google web playstore is says it is already installed on device? Any help would be great.

    If you did a factory reset on your device, that would have eliminated all of your apps. What do the storage settings on your device say? Is the internal memory empty?

    The factory reset worked as normal but as I said I am unable to locate Playstore app or any of the apps like Viber, Whatsapp etc which says are already installed on phone if I go to google and search it. The whole thing seems very weird I have even reset phone 3 more times but still nothing so where could have my apps gone?

    You need to flash GApps to get the Play Store. Then you can install the rest afterwards.

    Go to the CM website and look for the GApps files for your version. Boot into your custom recovery and hit install. Then look for the GApps zip and swipe to confirm.

    You can get the gapps package from Cyanogen website. There is other places but might as well grab it or use the link they provide. You will flash it on your device from the custom recovery (TWRP or CWM)

    No problem. Glad they're working again
