    Can you connect your device to your computer and see if iTunes will detect it and the app? If it does, delete the app via iTunes and then reinstall it, if you're able to.
    It does not detect it...doesn't show up

    Okay, then sign out of the iTunes & App Store, reboot your device, sign back in and try to remove the app.

    No luck that way either...you know when you're deleting other apps ,they shake and have the x by it so you delete it. There's no x on this way , so I can't delete it.

    Can you go to Settings-General-Usage -Show All Apps and delete it that way, if it's listed?

    OMG !! I never knew I could do that.
    Thanks so much! 👏👏👏👏
    Once I deleted the app that way it was removed, but it left a graph like icon behind with its name, then I could long press and the x came up and I removed it for good!! 👌

    I'm sure it'll clear itself eventually.

    This happened to me before and it eventually cleared itself. I just hid the app in a folder so I could ignore it. Hope you get a fix soon!

    Sometimes it is because of content downloading like music or podcasts and a problem associated with that. It has happened to me before a number of times and was always related to a podcast stuck on downloading. Clear that problem and the app should download as normal.

    I hadn't downloaded anything at the time the app was being installed. It was the first day I got the phone, all the other apple apps downloaded fully except that one. And it's been like that for two weeks!

    I JUST put music on my phone Saturday for the time....no podcasts, nothing else....

    What I've noticed in the past is it's an app that you have set to sync to your idevice but you don't have enough free space for it to fit. Try connecting your iDevice to your computer that you sync your phone with and remove the app that way. Then see how much room you have on your iDevice and compare that to the amount of room it will take for that specific app.

    I have tons of space, I tried connecting before to iTunes but iTunes doesn't show the app at all.

    Try the iPhone Configuration app for Windows or Mac. It's free from Apple and is usually used when an IT shop has to provision a bunch of devices at the same time and the same way. But anyone can use it and it's pretty easy. Just like in iTunes on the PC you can see your phone and then tabs for apps that are installed. And you can delete an app from there. It is possible that your rogue app may show up here and be able to be deleted. I didn't have this exact issue, but I was able to use it to delete an app I couldn't delete any other way.

    to fix the stuck apps, go to:
    Settings, ITunes and App Store, turn off updates under Automatic Downloads;
    go back to home screen and click on the App Store icon, the click on updates and select update all.
    After apps finish updating, you can turn automatic updates back on.

    Hope this works for you

    I already don't have automatic downloads on, and none of the apps need updating

    It seems that you have a problem that nobody has a solution for. Well, they do but they haven't worked so you've said. Maybe take it to an apple store and talk to them. Or you could just toss it in a folder and forget about it all together but that would irritate me just knowing that it's there and just sitting.
