Several months ago, I created a simple game using Unity 4.5 on an iMac running OS X Mavericks, and decided to try testing it on my iPhone 5s running iOS 7. I tested the game using the Unity Remote 4 app, and then closed out.

No longer interested in testing the game, I deleted Unity Remote a few days later. However, the game seems to have left some kind of "ghost app" behind on my phone — a blank app icon with my game's name that appears on my home screen. Upon tapping the icon, I am briefly presented with a black screen, and then returned to the home screen.

The app does not appear in Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage.

I have tried:

  • Deleting the app from the home screen. This does not work, as the icon re-appears after rebooting.

  • Using Xcode's Device view to delete the app. I was unable to do so due to "an internal API error."

  • Restoring from backups, rebooting, and hard resetting ("force restarting"), but all to no avail.

I would like to avoid a full reset of my phone as I have a large amount of data that isn't, and cannot be, backed up to iCloud or other cloud services.

My phone is currently running iOS 8.4.

Use iTunes to sync all apps you want except that one.

A guess would be to use other file managers out there like ifunbox (you might need to jailbreak, not very sure). Try find the app u want to uninstall and see how it goes. If it doesn't work, you can try to find alternatives. You may need to jailbreak for alternatives.
