How can I delete an app in Android? If I press and hold it, I can move it to the “trash” but it still appears in the slider!

    Ryan's right John, although I think it's important to note that some apps, like the ones that came pre-installed on your phone, can't be deleted. Apps like YouTube, but give it a try to make sure.

    Hey John - if you want to completely uninstall an app, you have to go into Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications.

    Then, you'll see a list of all apps installed. Select the one that you want to remove. On the next screen you'll see the "Uninstall" button. Press that and it'll be gone for good!

    Hope that helps!
