    There should be some ellipses on the top right of the app. Click that and go to details (or maybe it's about?). You should be at a page with usage details for the app. It should include an app installation error count. If there's any errors, you should be able to click it and see some details. It's also possible the app is just taking its time and it will install successfully eventually. – wjervis Dec 13 '16 at 17:01
  • @wjervis thanks for the reply ,, but can you please check my edit to the original question .. seems the installation failed.. – john Gu Dec 13 '16 at 17:27
  • What do you have in your app? It seems there's an issue with an item you have added to your app (required attributes missing). – wjervis Dec 13 '16 at 18:07
  • @wjervis nothing i just create a sharepoint hosted app,, i did not modify any thing inside it !! – john Gu Dec 14 '16 at 1:23
