I accidentally pressed the download button when I was looking at an app and it downloaded and it's now sitting in the My World section of App World. It says "Ready To Install" but I do not want to install it because I did not intend to download it. How do I delete this file? When I highlight it and click the BlackBerry button, I do not get an option to delete this file -- only Help, Show Memory Bar, Log In, Install, Switch Application, and Close. Did RIM forget to add an option to delete? Is the only way to get rid of this file now is to insall it and then uninstall it?
Thanks for your help!

Please do the following to delete an app:
1. Go to the main screen of your device
2. Search for the Options-App and open it
3. Go to Advanced Options
4. Go to Applications
5. Search for the app by name
6. Highlight it

Yes, but that's what you do to delete an app that has been installed. But as I have stated in my original post, I have not installed this app. It has only been downloaded and its status now is "Ready to Install." Is there any way of deleting an app that has only been downloaded and not installed?

I don't think so. I think that once you start the download/install sequence that you must complete it in order to then uninstall the app. Since it's stuck and not installing anyway, there's really no harm save for it being listed this way in your MyWorld. But, you could click it and finish the install, then follow the normal instructions to uninstall it I suppose.
Good luck and let us know!
