    Okay, the other day I was messing around on my iPhone, when I double tapped safari, and it disappeared, yes, disappeared. It was did the same action as when you delete a webclip, and the same when thing when you double tap the empty space as if you was adding a new webclip.

    I found this very strange and thought it might just be some bug, I still think it could be, as I did a restore and it wouldn't work, but when I restored my backup, it worked again. But, now I stupidly set it up as a new iPhone rather than restoring, and now it doesn't work.

    But yeah, what do you guys think this is?

    And sorry if I haven't explained it well, it is very late here and I'm tired.

    Probably a bug or something you downloaded?
    Also, iTouch Owner owns an iPhone. Ironic.

    That means that you have any one of a number of extended/advanced preferences installed and have the App Reveal feature set to true, or on.

    One time I deleted an App and the icon stayed there, but I coulnĀ“t open the App.

    In that case I SSHd into my iPod and found the file still there.

    IDK how to so it in reverse, all I can suggest is SSH and see if the Safari icon is still there in the app folder.

    Listen to Skylar, it's called AppReveal, it's a feature on advanced preferences.

    Not a glitch. Not by Apple
    It's on installer, it's called Advanced (or Extended) Preferences
