Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Uninstall Apps

Though Samsung Galaxy SIV has provided some basic apps as the stock apps, you're allowed to install third-party apps from other sources or from the official Android market, Google Play Store. This of course will benefit you because you can install another app that you need into your phone.

Aside from the easiness to install apps, in this phone you're also allowed to uninstall installed apps. There are some reasons why you should uninstall apps, for instance when the app has triggered some problem in your phone or when you no longer want to use certain app so you want to uninstall it to tidy up your phone as well as to free up some spaces, etc.


How to uninstall app with 4 easy ways?
FYI, these methods are only applied for downloaded apps, or in other words you can't use these methods to uninstall the stock apps. Well, generally there are 4 methods available to uninstall app. Here they are:


Method #1: From App drawer use the App info icon
This is one of my favourite method that I often use to uninstall app because it allows me to clear cache and data of the selected apps.
  1. Go to Apps from Home screen.
  2. Long tap the desired app you wish to uninstall and then drag it to the App info icon located at the top of the screen.
  3. Before uninstalling the app, better if you clear its cache and data by tapping the Clear cache button and the Clear data button.
  4. Tap Uninstall button.
  5. Tap OK button to confirm.
  6. The selected app will be uninstalled shortly.


Method #2: From App drawer use the option in Menu key
This method allows you to uninstall some apps more easier directly from the app menu. Unfortunately, this method doesn't allow you to clear cache and data of the selected app.
  1. Go to Apps from Home screen.
  2. Tap the Menu key then select Uninstall.
  3. All uninstallable apps will be labeled with the red minus circled icon.
  4. Tap the desired app you wish to uninstall.
  5. Tap OK button to confirm.
  6. The selected app will be uninstalled shortly.


Method #3: From the Settings menu
This is my second favourite method to uninstall app. This method is the same with the method #1, but with more longer steps.
  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap More tab.
  3. Tap Application manager.
  4. In the Downloaded tab, tap the desired app you wish to uninstall.
  5. Before uninstalling the app, better if you clear its cache and data by tapping the Clear cache button and the Clear data button.
  6. Tap Uninstall button.
  7. Tap OK button to confirm.
  8. The selected app will be uninstalled shortly.


Method #4: From Google Play Store
This method allows you to uninstall app while you're in the Google Play Store. I ever use this method when I installed incorrect app from Google Play Store. So before I forgot it, I had uninstalled this app while I'm still in the Google Play Store.
  1. Open Play Store app.
  2. Swipe the screen from the left to the right.
  3. Tap My apps.
  4. In the Installed tab, tap the desired app you wish to uninstall.
  5. Tap Uninstall button.
  6. Tap OK button to confirm.
  7. The selected app will be uninstalled shortly.

Well. each method has their own advantage. So, by knowing all available methods to uninstall app, now you can uninstall the desired app by using a method that best suit your need. Well, hope it helps :)
