How to delete your deployed app from your physical device after testing?

Hello, All.


After building and deploying my app to my physical device, I'm trying to find a way to delete them off my phone.

I'll delete the app, and after a restart, the app reappears again. Do I have to un-install it with the cascades IDE? If so, how?

Thanks.

Your app should be deleted after a long hold and delete action on the app icon.

 

You should not have to use the IDE to do so.

 

Try deleting it, then using the Target File System Navigator to check it has really been deleted.

So I deleted the app again. Went into the Target File System Navigator and check in the Sandboxes directory and I still see the app directory there.

 

Tried to delete it from the Target File System Navigator and it gave me a permission denied...

Have you installed it in a different way in the past?

I know I have sideloaded an app and installed via the IDE, both apps got installed, if you have a lot of apps installed it's easy to miss the other one.

 

Short of that I don't know what to suggest, if the icon disappears when you delete the app and you get no error message this sounds like something to report through JIRA.
