The latest version of BlackBerry App World (4.0.0.55) brings along a feature that many users have been waiting quite a while for. In addition to a handful of updates, you now have the ability to remove applications from your My World list in BlackBerry App World. This is great news since, if you're like me, you have probably loaded up the list with plenty of apps you no longer have a use for. Instead of having them linger around, clogging up your lists, you can now easily remove them and never have to think about them again. Keep reading to see how to delete apps from BlackBerry App World in just a few clicks.

How to delete applications from BlackBerry App World

  • First off, make sure you are running the latest version of BlackBerry App World
  • Run BlackBerry App World, then go to My World
  • On the menu bar, change the dropdown to Uninstalled
  • Click the pencil icon
  • Scroll through your app list and click the checkbox next to any items you want to remove
  • You will see a running total of selected apps as you go. When you are done, press the Menu key and choose Delete All
  • The apps you selected will be permanently removed from your My World list

I needed this article today. There's an adult app I need to get rid of before my girlfriend catches it! http://www.geekchoice.com

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 think you can thank your carrier for this. Just hide the app icon and it will soon be forgotten.

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?

Thank Christ, Lord Baby Jesus, and adult Jesus too! Praise him.... Praise him!!!

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.

About time!! This is great, I managed to delete 76 apps!!!

bporterrn

And much welcomed enhancement. Any idea when Appworld for PB is going to be updated?

steveintheburgh

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!

Remove the app via apploader or desktop manager.

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 ?
