Android is an awesome mobile operating system – so awesome, in fact, that many report that Android sales are overtaking those of the iPhone. The Android market – where you can find and download Android applications for your Android phone, is extensive, and the majority of apps are free. It’s easy to load your phone up with apps, but at some point you will need to know how to uninstall apps on an Android phone, because you will want to delete apps from Android to make more space on your phone, or you will want to remove an application simply because you don’t use that application any more. It’s very easy to remove an Android application – in fact easier than with an iPhone. To remove an app from Android, just follow these simple steps.

To start, go into your phone or tablet’s settings:


android-settings

 

Under ‘Settings’, find ‘Applications’:

 

android-applications

Now select ‘Manage applications’:

 

manage-applications

 

Select the application that you want to remove from your Android device – in this example we are using the awesome game AndHangman (which we would never really remove, as it’s a great game):

 

 

android-application-andhangman

 

After you’ve selected the Android app that you want to remove (uninstall), click… you got it … ‘Uninstall’:

 

android-application-uninstall

 

…and confirm:

 

android-ok-uninstall-app

And that’s all there is to it!

One really nifty thing is that even after you uninstall an app in Android, it will still be in the listing under “My Downloads” in the Market, so that you can quickly find it to reinstall it if you want to.
