    Ok so two issues,

    I download an app from play store, its installed, no icon badge in app drawer. Search app, Long hold, locate app, unable to locate. Google play store says installed.

    Long hold an app icon, uninstall. Get pop up it has uninstalled, icon remains. Press icon, unable to locate app.

    I have cleared cache and reset home screen app settings... noooo idea... I have checked for virus, malware and gone through my phone 1000 times....

    Any ideas?

    Clear your cache partition and reboot. Re-download the apps. That would be the 1st step.

    Now that would be a smart idea methodman89. I have done that a few times now. It is a recurring issue. Worst case scenario I will factory reset obviously but just wondering if it is just my phone or an issue with everyone.... fyi I clear cache and reboot, then go to re download and it happens all over again.....

    Do you have more than 1 Google account? And is the playstore signed in to the same as the phones main account?
