Question Can't find downloaded app?

Hi, I downloaded the Instagram app for my HTC Desire, but when it finished it said "invalid file type". Could'nt find it on the phone anywhere, but it has downloaded it as when I started the phone had 20mb of memory free. Now it only has 8mb free and the Instagram app is 12mb, so it's there somewhere but I have no idea how to find it or delete it!!
Hopefully someone can help as I can't update any other apps now, as I have no room!!
Cheers
Steve

Restart your phone see if it's in the cache or something. -shrugs-

Have you gone into manage applications to see if it's there maybe?

Instagram isnt what you think it might be... move along, its poo
Although I think you know that now. Install Astro file manager and search using that...or attach it to your PC and use the power of a PC to hunt the thing down.

The same thing happened to me and I just got my phone yesterday. I have an LG Optimus elite from Virgin Mobile. But I just discovered something - I can download apps no problem when I turn OFF WIFI and use my 3G to download. If I download with Wifi on, then I get the "invalid file type". Try it!

To turn off Wifi, go to Settings.

Hope this helps someone!!
