Remove defective app from iCloud/iPad? - 11/30/13 12:35 PM

While backing up my iPad to iCloud one app transferred only the app icon. I restored from that backup and now I have the icon with the waiting message but the cloud thinks it is downloaded. I can open it from the cloud list but not directly from the iPad icon. How can I delete the icon from my iPad and rue download it. The normal "wiggly icon " delete method has no X in the corner

Did you reboot the phone?

Yes, What worked was to delete from settings/general/usage/storage which converted the icon to a generic icon which I could then delete. I'm redownloading now and things seem normal. Thank you for your help
