Remotely Uninstall Android Apps from Your Device

Until recently you could only remotely install applications on your Android-powered device. If you logged into the Google Play Store on your desktop PC and you found an interesting app, you could install it on your Android device remotely. After you told the Play Store that you want to install the app, it was installed on your device automatically.

What you could not do remotely was uninstall an app. For that you needed physical access to the device – you needed to remove the app yourself from the device. This is no longer the case. The option to remotely uninstall an app has been added to the functionality the Google Play Store has to offer.

You can now do three things remotely from the Google Play Store (formerly Android Market):
  • You can remotely install an application on your Android-powered device.
  • You can remotely update one of the applications installed on your Android-powered device.
  • You can remotely uninstall one of the applications installed on your Android-powered device.
Just access My Android Apps in your browser of choice to view a list of all the apps currently installed on your Android device. To update an app, just click the Update button. To uninstall an app, just click the trash icon. Here’s an image to better put things in perspective.



Speaking about the Android mobile operating system, Google recently presented Android 4.1 codename Jelly Bean. This latest version of the Android platform, as Google explained, comes with improved system performance, enhanced user features, a powerful predictive keyboard, richer and more interactive notifications, a smoother and more responsive UI, a home screen that adapts to fit the content, a host of new APIs, and more.



Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is simply the smoothest and fastest Android version so far.
Additional information on what Jelly Bean has to offer is available here.
