So you downloaded an application that you thought would be so cool, you know one of those hundreds of fart apps, but then you realized it wasn't so cool and wanted to get rid of it? Luckily Android makes managing applications very easy, and there are a few simple ways of removing applications.
For applications installed through the market, simply launch the market, press the Menu button and then select My Apps. Click on the app you wish to remove, and then click Uninstall.
Another way, which works for market installed apps, and sideloaded applications is through the system menu.
- Go to your devices settings, then applications
- Click on manage applications
- Click on application you wish to remove
- Click uninstall and then confirm
A third way works on some third-party launchers, and even some stock software builds. Try holding down on an app icon (either in the app drawer or on a home screen). When the trash can appears, drag the app over it and hold it there for a second. If you see an "Uninstall" pop up, let go, and it'll uninstall that app.
Easy as pie.
