    App icons missing on Android phone Samsung Galaxy Gio

    I was using all the apps with good comfort till last week on my Android phone Samsung Galaxy Gio. But now I could see that all the app icons are missing. I am not sure what has happened in between. Please help me out to restore my apps.

    Try to reboot the phone and turn it off and then turn it on and see

    Or else there may be the case that the aplication needs to be re installed

    As far as i Know it happens mainly to those apps which are stored on Sd card.May be you have moved the app to sdcard.In this situation u must search for an app in market which can organise all apps

    Make it mandate to reboot your device whenever you downlaod and install a new app, so that the settings can be properly applied to the device.

    This will be the problem with your device.

    If not then go for Factory Reset which will have default settings and can be usaefull for your app.

    hey friend ..

    The problem you are facing in your mobile phone can be due to following reasons :

    - Phone's internal memory not free

    - Applications moved to sd card and sd card got damaged or corrupted

    - Software problem

    - Virus attack in the phone

    To solve this problem do following :

    - Free up phone's internal memory

    - Reset your phone and update with the new software if available


    - Check for any virus in the sd card and remove if any by using good antivirus software..

    - Delete or uninstall apps which you dont need or use very much

    thanks

    Dear friend

    this may be due to various reasons
    so
    1 may be you have stored the apps in the sd card
    and the device is now unable to read them form
    the sd card.
    So check the sd card in other device that it is correct
    2 may be your sd card contain virus so that
    device is unable to detect them.
    So install proper updates antivirus and after that scan
    the sd card and the device
    3 or may be by somehow you have uninstalled them
    so check them

    hope this will help you
