How to delete apps permanently?

My friends thought it would be funny to download an app on sex advice, and I can't get rid of itSmiley Sad. I've uninstalled it, but it's still in my app world! My dad goes on my PlayBook quite often and I don't want him seeing it! Is there any way that i can delete it permanently out of my app world so he can't see it?

No. You will have to run the PlayBook through a shredder before your dad gets his hands on it again. Or you can go out and buy him his own. He would love that.

if you do a security wipe and change your bbid your app history will be lost... but u will loose any apps u purchased as well from that id.

Re: How to delete apps permanently?

ignites is correct, you would have to change your BBID for that, which also includes

- doing a security wipe

- changing the BBID on your PlayBook, with new mail address etc

- losing all your apps and data, if you haven't secured it somewhere



- you could ask the app world support if they can delete that entry from your app world. could take a while though (like a few weeks).the mail address is sth like support@app-world (+sth with blackberry, I forgot)


- you could tell your dad Smiley Happy

Re: How to delete apps permanently?

It is likely dad's PlayBook. If you do the Security Wipe on it, you will really be in trouble.
