Your Android smartphone’s memory is limited and it is time to purge your device of the apps you never use. But how do you cleanse your device of unplayed games, lifestyle apps, and otherwise? Have no fear! According to, unless your phone has a more heavily modified Android skin, like Samsung’s TouchWiz, uninstalling apps from stock Android is simple. First, select the Settings app from your app drawer or home screen. Then, tap ‘Apps’ or ‘Applications.’ Next, scroll down the list until you find the app you want to remove and tap it. Finally, select Uninstall. By the way, if you do not intend to reinstall the app you are removing, take the time to “Clear Data” on any app you are uninstalling. You can usually find this button in the “Storage” section near to the “Uninstall” button in each of our guides. This ensures that as little data from the app as possible will be left on your device post-uninstallation. But if you’re just removing an app temporarily — to make space for an operating system update, for example — feel free to leave the data there, so it will still be available when you put the app back onto your device later.
