10/01/15 update put ghost image on ipad

After updating an unlabeled icon was on ipad screen. Could not be deleted by standard approach although it could be moved. Unlabeled, so it took some research to identify it as from Backpacker. Deleted Backpacker from Newsstand, icon still there. After reboot icon gone. Very sloppy work on both Backpacker and Apple update teams.
