[HOW TO] Correctly remove Android applications the right way the first time

There're many different ways to install Android applications such as from the Google Play Store, through other apps, and even using your mobile web browser through a third party source.

Uninstalling an application can be accomplished in several ways to remove an Android app, such as through the Google Play Store, or long pressing and dragging to uninstall etc. But there is only one correct method to uninstall any Android app and this tutorial will show you how.

Do you install lots of apps? I certainly do and I also have to un-install them as well. Sometimes it's because I no longer use an app, or storage is running low and I want to lighten the load, and sometimes an application will crash, outdated, incorrectly updated or just no longer works properly. No matter what the circumstances are, when uninstalling an Android application there is only one correct way to uninstall and this applies to all Android devices (i.e. phones, tablets, TV players, Amazon devices, etc.)

Start by finding the settings application which all devices have, sometimes the location or icon is different but overall the steps are the same.

Step 1.
Find and open 'Settings' application, found either in your app drawer or in the notifications menu above.

Step 2.
Some devices look different but overall the location is the same
I am using a Samsung device and under general, 'Application Manager'
click on it to highlight and open applications installed.

The first column will list the apps you've downloaded from the Play Store or any where else. These were not there when device was turned on for the first time or from factory reset.

Step 3.
Notice the other options and that there are multiple columns.
The next option scrolling over to the right will be ' SD Card'
Sometimes moving apps over to the SD Card is a good idea but only for apps that are small or need little added storage or use lots of cache or need to be opened from other apps such as external player options. It helps with storage but best for photos, backups and side-loading or transfers.

Step 4.
Next is 'Running Applications'. Here is where you can manage and clear cache processes. Some applications will overrun your device with build up cache and it is recommended that from time to time clearing cache processes only on applications running very high.

63mb is a little high for what I need so I will clear it by clicking on 'Stop'

Step 5.
Uninstalling an Android Application the correct way is very important.
For example if I want to remove KODI so I can install a new version I must locate it here in application manager.

Open application info. Here is where you can manage default settings, cache, data, notifications, force stop and uninstall.

It depends on what you want to do. So if you plan to keep user data such as plugs, user settings or add-on data, then uninstall the application by pressing the uninstall option.


When removing or changing an app its best to clear data first.
This is very important when having issues with app crashing, updates not installing, changing any third party app from unknown sources.
