How do you (or can you) see what apps are on your iPad, even if they don’t show up anywhere?
I’ll explain. I had a game that I downloaded years ago. (Cannot remember if I paid for it or it was free), but I hadn’t played it in a while. Yesterday, I went to look for it to play it, and could not find the icon that used to be on my screen. So I looked at the list of apps under the “Settings”, and it wasn’t there either.
I didn’t remember erasing it, so I went to the very first screen on my iPad, and there is a search function that permits a search of the iPad, and sure enough, when I typed the name of the app, it appeared. When I selected the name, the game appeared and I could play it normally, however it still does not appear anywhere. It is apparently still on my iPad, and accessible, but only if I type the name of the game in the search field first.
Is there a way to get this icon back onto my iPad screen? And as a follow-up, is there a way to look at the files on my iPad, similar to the way I can see the file structure on my windowns devices?
Some additional info:
This game is no longer on the app store, and I cannot find it anywhere except on Steam. Not sure if they stopped putting it on the US app store, if they only support one operating system now (I am running apple’s iOS), or what is going on. But I do not have a steam account, nor have I ever downloaded anything from Steam.
