Default Moved apps to SD card and now some wont show.

So I used TB to move my apps from my phone to my SD card. Now after it happened , I noticed half of my apps were missing from ym home screen and my app drawer. I re opened and tried to back all my apps from SD card back to phone but some of the apps don't even show in TB. So I went ahead and reinstalled 2 apps from the market. Whatsapp and kik, both of the data and everything is there, since whatsapp and kik logged me right into my account as it was left last time. I've attached two screenshots off my app manager. As you can see the apps are there but I have no way of reinstalling other than installing them back from the market. Is therre anyone to get my apps back apart from using the market?

Thanks in advance

There was probably some problem while moving your apps, maybe it was TB s fault or maybe it is your sd card, i dunno, but i don't think you can restore them, you need to re-install them. You don't have a backup on TB? Maybe you can try;
1- Backup the faulty apps with TB,
2- Uninstall the apps,
3- Restore them.

Try to move the apps back from SD to phone storage without using TB (Use the same menus that you posted the screenshots from).

There are apps that don't behave well if the are moved to SD.

What version of android are you running?
