How to uninstall apps from a BlackBerry

Remove software you no longer use

If you've got a BlackBerry smartphone, then you've probably already made use of one of its greatest features – the ability to install third-party software from BlackBerry App World, RIM's app store.

However, the initial flush of love for apps, may see you downloading software that you use once and never open again. Alternatively, you may have downloaded games which you've completed. Subsequently, they're taking up valuable space on your phone's memory.

Don't panic though. In just a few steps you can wipe the apps from your memory, freeing up space on your smartphone. Here's how to do it.

Step one
With the home screen displayed, press the Menu button and then select Options, which is depicted with a spanner icon.

Step two
Now select Advanced option and then Applications or if you are using a Blackberry Torch select Third Party Applications.

Step three
A list of installed applications will be displayed. Scroll down to the application you want to remove and then press the Menu button to highlight the application.

Step four
From the list of options that appears in the bottom left corner, scroll down and select Delete.

Step five
You'll be asked to confirm you want to delete the app. Press Yes and the application will be removed.
