How do you do this?

The first thing you will need to do is root your phone. (you can find a guide here.)

You could then install a terminal application and type away.

or you can install Titanium Backup!!

You may be asking why use a piece of backup software to uninstall Apps? The simple answer is Ti does the job and does it well. If removing Apps is what brought you here, then you will end up with a piece of software that does two things very well.

Once you know what you would like to uninstall just select the name and you will get a pop up like the picture on the left.

You will now see an option to uninstall, be aware if you remove the wrong app you can leave your phone useless and a reinstall might be nessecary. So if you are nervous or unsure of whaqt to remove you might want to leave it until you can find more info on the application you are looking to remove.

Also you can always search google and see what others are removing.

So many new apps are coming!!

It has been reported that android just hit 30,000 apps. Yeah i know it's still way behind the iphone, but I do suspect that this number will double by christmas. The way I look at it is you can install an application from bluetooth, usb, download from your phone and more, so it will make other sites pop up as time goes on to sell apps.

Just read an article that even AOL is getting in on the android app business and has developed 2 apps already. ;-) Yeah I know who is still using AOL. L0L
