How do I remove an app?

Greetings,

 

My Style 9670 allows me to remove an app from the Uninstalled list. How do I remove an app from the Uninstalled list in my PlayBook? I just don't want it anymore.

 

Thanks,

Shane.

Re: How do I remove an app?

I don't own a PlayBook :smileysad: but on my Z30 I follow BlackBerry World>All>My World>My Apps & Games>(Installed Tab) then I press and hold the app in question and select the garbage can icon then I select Delete. It might work differently on the PlayBook but there's my attempt at helping you.

 

 

Cheers.  :smileyhappy:

Re: How do I remove an app?

In the Installed list, there is already a Delete button. However, tapping it just moves an app to the Uninstalled list.

 

There is no Delete button in the Uninstalled list. Tapping or holding an app opens up the app page, but the only three buttons are Reinstall, Support, and Back.

 

Thanks,

Shane.

, you can delete it from your App World when viewing from the 9670?

Re: How do I remove an app?

When I go into BlackBerry World > My World > Other Devices, it only shows me a single app (Box), and not the app I'm trying to remove. I agree this should work. I guess BlackBerry World is a bit buggy.

 

I tried reinstalling the app in my PlayBook to see if there would be more uninstall options, but there weren't.

 

Thanks,

Shane.

You should be able specifically choose the older device on which that app was intended for.

How do I specify the device in the "Other Devices" list?

 

I have the latest version of BlackBerry World (App World 4.3.0.32)

 

Thanks,

Shane.

Re: How do I remove an app?

Do it from your PC.

Sign in to AppWorld with your BBID

At the top "Displaying my info for?" click on Change

Choose the former device

 

Do you see it now?
