It's rare, but every once in awhile you get a really badly behaved app for your Android-- one that just won't work for you or isn't right for you or even locks up your device. But a misbehaving or inappropriate app can become more aggravating if the thing simply won't uninstall. It sits there, taking up space on your phone or tablet, and attempts to get rid of the thing end with your system hanging up and nothing being done.
I ran into this situation myself after trying out the highly rated Nun Attack and its successor. After a few attempts at the program (and at turning OFF the sound), I decided that these games just weren't for me. So I tried uninstalling them... only to find that the built-in uninstall program for these games just didn't work on my Samsung Galaxy 5 phone. Annoyed, I went into the settings for my Samsung phone and tried using the file system to uninstall, but they didn't go away.
And that's about the time that the whole situation got on my last little nerve. So I did what any good geek does -- went out and started hunting down an application to get rid of it. After a few tries, I came across a little app called "Uninstall" by Diya.
This is a little freeware gem for your android phone software problems. It doesn't need fancy permissions, it doesn't throw ads at you. It brings up a display of your apps (in alphabetical order) and you tap on the one that you want gone for good.
And it uninstalls it. Just like that.
I gave it 5 stars. You can find it here:
