    Default Cannot Uninstall
    So I downloaded craigsphone the other day and decided I didn't want it anymore. I deleted it on my iPhone but the icon kept reappearing. I then deleted it from iTunes but when I synced, it told me that it couldn't delete it from my iPhone due to some error. I thought about just manually deleting it via SSH but can't find the app anywhere...

    This seems to be a pretty big problem too because as soon as iTunes tries to delete it but can't, it then stops the sync, keeping my iPhone from completely syncing. (I added it back into iTunes for now so I can sync correctly).

    Any ideas for me?

    Easiest way to fix this is to do a hard reset (after deleting the app) by holding the power button and the home button below the screen. Don't let them go until you see the Apple logo, then release them when you do.

    Let us know if this works.

    Nope, as soon as it restarts, it's back on the home screen.

    Ok. Remove the app and be sure to (unplug from your computer when doing so) and do another hard reset, this time when you see the Apple logo let go of the home button and push down twice on the power button (be sure to do this right when you see the Apple logo.)

    you might need to go ahead and do a back up and restore from back up. Sorry to hear it's being a pain for you.
