    Default Installed apps does not appear?

    Hi, I installed apps and they are 'installed' as per play google. However, my s5 does not receive any notification of installing the app and also the app is nowhere to be found, even in application manager.

    Anyone have a fix?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried rebooting the phone? I know there was a similar bug like this on my HTC One back a while ago. A reboot and then all the sudden certain apps reappeared.

    But your are saying if you pull up your application drawer you can't locate any of the recently downloaded apps?

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the reply. I have tried rebooting several times and they do not appear.

    They do not appear in the application manager as well.

    Wow very odd.

    And your getting the notification that the app has downloaded and installed?

    If you open your Google Play Store app and click on the upper left corner hamburger icon and select MY APPS from the list does it show those missing apps as installed in the list?

    Sometimes that happens if you factory reset your phone. Just reinstall from app store on pc and it should be pushed to your phone

    I am not getting any notification of downloading and installing.

    The apps are listed in the google play store apps.

    I think the point they were making was via your computer you can log into Google Play and then select an application and have it " pushed " downloaded to your device over the air.

    Do you have Data turned on and your phone set to sync ?

    There is a setting in the play store settings. Open the play store, swipe from the left to bring the list and go to settings. See if the add icon the home screen option is checked. I think you've got something else going in but it's worth a try. You might try booting in safe mode and wiping the cache too. If that doesn't work, you're looking at a factory reset.
