Unable to delete app from PlayBook

In App World, Under "My World", I am unable to see a delete button for the app "Resistor Ohm".
I've upgraded to the latest OS version. I suspect the disappearance of the button is due to the app not being declared compatible with my OS version.

While I can understand not being able to install the app anew, there should always be a way to delete an installed app.

Re: Unable to delete app from PlayBook

How DID you install that application? Sideload?

I installed the app back when the OS version was 1.0.

Re: Unable to delete app from PlayBook

Apologies. I installed the above app normally using BlackBerry App World while I was still running OS version 1.0.x.

I recently upgraded to OS 2.1 and noticed that the delete button had disappeared in the list of apps.

On the applications icon screen, touch and hold the icon a few seconds and it will begin to pulse. Touch the small trashcan icon next to it to delete the application.
