No, if your app was in "development" mode, there isn't an option for restoring it after you delete it.

When you delete an app in development mode though, it frees up the name, so you can register a new app using the same name:

To clarify, there isn't an option for you to recover it from the App Console, but if necessary we can manually recover it for you. You can open an API ticket to request that if so:

Anyway, no, if you register a new app with the same name, old access tokens for the old app will not start working again.
