    Whenever I install an app from the app store, all the apps I hide with poof, dock with sbsettings, and random apps that I do not know where there from pop up. They have white icons and have names like Adsheet, demoapp, trustme, and ipodout.

    When I respring the ipod displays a random image of something I was doing on my ipod earlier. I have screenshots of this below.

    I'm sorry that I have so many twitter apps, Mom.


    I do respring, but it's a real pain to have to respring every time I install an app. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Write down the app names, and then go to the applications folder via SSH and delete the apps manually, then respring. This happened to me once..

    Are you sure that these aren't needed? Is there a tutorial for finding specific apps that you could link me to?
