Use the Search facility, which you bring up by hitting the round "Home" button. Hit Home once if you're on your home screen, or twice if you're currently not on your Home screen. Enter "IB TWS" and hit Search.
If the application is still not found, reboot your device by holding down the Home and power buttons together until the device shuts down. Then hold the power button to re-power the device.
In some cases, the application can get "stuck" in a state where it's only half installed. Try going to the app store and re-installing.
If you still cannot get the IB TWS app, please call Apple support for assistance.
