There are so many apps out there for Android devices, many of them free, that you can’t help installing a bunch of them. However, you might discover you don’t like some of them, or you’re starting to run out of room on your device.
I am wondering if either of these three methods will leave any of the apps data behind.
I think a better way would be to 1) Go to settings, 2) Open the Application manager 3) Tap on the App you want to uninstall. From there, click "Clear data" then Force Stop and finally, Uninstall.
I think you might want to point out that many apps that come with the device cannot be installed. Particularly annoying are the apps installed by the phone company...
They can be disabled though, which is almost as good. Again, go to Settings: Applications. Select the bundled junkware in question and Uninstall Updates. Then, Force Stop, and finally Disable that sucker. No more Blockbuster updates for me thanks.
