    So I downloaded Fring from the App Store, and after successfully making a call, I wanted to Rename it to Phone. So I put it on my dock, launched Rename and renamed it Phone. After the respring however, the icon was gone. I have the app installed apparently, its icon just went missing. I've resprung countless times, tried re-syncing my iPod on iTunes, Poofed it and unPoofed it to no avail.
    Anyone got a solution? D:

    EDIT: 'kay, so after manually uninstalling it via SSH, I managed to redownload it from the AppStore, and when I tried renaming it again, it disappeared again...
    Anyone know how to stop it from disappearing?

    Nope. I simply put it on my dock, renamed it, and BOOM its gone.
    EDIT: I SSH'd into my iPod in hopes of manually uninstalling Fring. I went into the Applications folder with the EGSRGRS780709.whatever and found the one with the folder Fring.app. I deleted the whole AEUGHSF87987.whatever folder, but when I tried re-syncing, it didn't install Fring again.
    EDIT2: I went into the AppStore, and I can now redownload it, but it won't actually download. I get the icon again, but it stays stuck at "Loading..."(NEVERMIND, DOWNLOADED)

    Go into Sbsettings>More>Hide Icons, is the app there? And if it is, is it turned to on or off?

    Yeah I did this already.
    The app is there and its ON. I tried turning it OFF and back ON, but it didn't work.
    For now, I just have my Docked Icon Labels off, so it doesn't show the "Fring". =P

    Yeah, that would make some sense. I'll just hide its name then
