How to delete applications from BlackBerry App World


I hope this works for Telelnav. No matter how many times I deleted it, when I try to repurchase, App World keeps re-installing the same expired app.

I have noticed a weird issue with App World 4. On my last OS installation, I went through My World, installed the apps I wanted, and then deleted everything else from My World, so there was only the items I wanted. Then I updated my OS last night, and when I go into My World to reinstall all my apps, only some of the apps are in My World list. I'm glad I made a list separately. Has anybody else noticed this?

Excellent addition. I have been wanting to get rid of the junk forever.
Question: In case I ever do want to reinstall, would I have to purchase the again?

Also ... since the update, when I go to AppWorld I have a splat on the "My World" icon but when I go in there it says I have no updates. Anyone else? Very annoying. The splat does not show on the AppWorld icon on the home screen.

Just for clarification...I believe this jut removes them from the list---not the actual file from the device.
I tried to use this tool to get rid of a corrupt app file (application resource manager) so I could re-download it (ass opposed to re-install) from app world. No Love.

Any on ideas on how to accomplish that welcomed!

Hi all. So I got the new Aap world on my curve really nice. Love the fact that you can delete you uninstalled items now. But one question though. The app word memory bar.. When you delete the uninstalled items does the memory goes down as well ? Cause mine stay the sam. Still shows 85MB of 256MB available. Did delete the stuff and re boot my curve removing the battery but still stays the same ... Any suggestions ?
