I have an app that looks like it tries to continuously install. It's been like that for weeks. I have free space, like 2GB. When I long press the icon, and try to delete it, it pops up a dialog asking me if I want to delete, but it doesn't delete. I can't even delete it from iTunes. It doesn't have an X on the icon like other apps do. I tried to click Update for the app and sync, but it doesn't work and the icon is still like that. When I just try to launch the app, it does nothing.

  • @bret7600 There is, but how does that effect it? – Chloe May 3 '16 at 21:41

    A profile may force any app onto or off of the device, your workplace (if this is a work phone) may be preventing you from deleting some apps from the phone. – bret7600 May 4 '16 at 22:15

Go to Settings - General - Storage & iCloud Usage - Storage: Manage Storage. You can also delete apps from here.

I turned the phone off, on, and re-synched with iTunes and now it works.
