It's been pulled and is no longer supported. You can still sync it to your phone through iTunes just like any other pulled app. Connect your phone to iTunes and check the box next to the iCafe app in the apps tab. This is assuming you have synced with iTunes at least once in the past six years.

I did not do this. Dang Stinks! Forced to use Tapatalk. Can't stand it! My fault though.

Haha, I have indeed synced to iTunes. About once every couple of weeks on my Mac.

I've synced to iTunes many times and there is no trace of the eic app there, or on my phone. I think it's lost for all eternity....

Are you sure you're looking in the right place? It should be on this list if you've ever synced.

It's no longer in my purchased list. It's still on screen, but if I restore as new, it's gone.
Most apps I have that are pulled from the App Store remain in the purchased list. Not sure why this one did not.

Apps that are pulled/removed from the App Store are removed from the purchased list on iOS, but they remain in your app list in iTunes can still be synced after restores through iTunes.

I still have several apps in my purchased list that were pulled. When Apple pulled the Launcher App, it remained in my purchased list.

A few might slip by Apple. But if they are removed from your purchased list as they typically are when they are pulled, they only way to get them back on is syncing them through iTunes.

I have about 10 or so on screen that are no longer in the App Store, but are in my purchased list. When I tap on them in the purchased list, it goes to a blank screen with the spinning load wheel. There's a few more, but they're not on my screen.

Can you click the cloud icon and install them from the purchased list?

Yes. But if I tap it, it doesn't load to show the app highlights.
Right. As I have mentioned before, you have to use iTunes to install it since it's no longer in the App Store.

I can download them to my screen. I just can't see the write up. The write up doesn't load.

A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!!

So, I ran into some issues while upgrading to my 128 GB Piano Black iPhone 7 Plus. I couldn't remember my password for my encrypted backups via iTunes, therefore I couldn't just do a straight restore from my old phone to my new phone. So I had to basically start from scratch. Using the PURCHASED list in iOS, I was able to install a lot of the apps I had. But there were a couple more, including the iCafe app for these forums, that I was going to have to restore from iTunes somehow.

I do backup to iTunes pretty regularly, so it was in there, but I've had a few issues with my whole iTunes library since I moved it from my MBP a few months ago to the Airport Base. I knew it was there. I found it in the directory. But as hard as I tried, I couldn't get it to restore.

Then, last night, I was just perusing a few things in my phone, and I could not believe my eyes. There, on my phone, was the app. The purplish app -- with the words iCafe Forums below it. BAM!! It was there!! Not sure how long it had been hidden there, but IT'S THERE!! And IT WORKS!! WOOOOHOOO!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!!!
