    Re: Ghost Apps

    There are a few free apps out there that will put those on home screen after installing. They appear to be just shortcuts and not really installed on your phone.

    I tried a free app and same thing happened to me. Think it was draw pad or something lol

    Sorry, should of been more clearer.

    First do not click on the shortcut apps on screen (they might take you somewhere you dont need to be, lol). Uninstall the app/apps that put them there. Then just remove them from home screen like any app. That should be it.

    Is this the one that provides a different search engine? If so, it should list the steps needed to delete the shortcut. The directions are on their website and listed somewhat within the application's help information.

    I avoided clicking on any of those icons. I just did the steps I mentioned earlier.

    Also check your play store settings, Google added auto add widgets as a toggle setting. So the add right after installing. I'm not a fan.

    That said I do like a feature of the Note 2. When I put an app in a folder or just shortcut on the "desktop" then I hide it in the launcher. Freaking brilliant idea.
