How to fix some mysterious problems.

I had it downloaded then it stopped working by showing a blank icon when zoomed into a folder..on the springboard, it would show its icon, tho.

When I tried to launch, it would just crash. Then, all of a sudden it was gone!

Any ideas?

What device, iOS and why are you using that?

what app are you installing ?

7.0.4, ip5s, installing IPAs. It's not an app I'm installing but it's the IPA installer that's having issues. Does it matter what app I'm installing?

sure does.. best way to install ipa's is itunes..

IPA Installer can install unsigned apps though, so it can be useful in cases where iTunes isn't.

I'm guessing that IPA Installer just needs an update to work properly on iPhone 5s and iOS 7 - it's probably nothing that you're doing wrong, and nothing you can easily fix on your own.
