    Hi.

    I'm the proud new owner of a TouchPad. Yesterday, I downloaded and installed an app that I didn't realize was not a "TouchPad" app (webOS: yes, TouchPad: no). This app doesn't use up all of the screen. It will only use a portion of the screen. How do I go about removing this app from the TouchPad?

    Thank you very much.

    Click and hold on the app you don't want. All the apps will change to show boxes and a little "x" in the top corner. click the "x" to delete. You can grab an app and move it while in this mode. Don't forget to click "Done" in the top left (under the time) when you are done.

    You can also remove apps through Software Manager. Just swipe the app you want to remove either right or left and you will be presented with a dialog box to remove the app.

    I don't know if this has been fixed but there was a bug where it was recommended to not delete in this manor.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Yes. You have to delete it from the Software Manager. Clicking the X only deletes it from the Launcher.

    Not true. If you press on the 'X', a dialog box comes up asking if you want to remove the app. It must work, because the app then isn't in the s/w manager and re-appears in the app catalogue as "Free" (if you downloaded it as a free app).

    Okay, but I did read somewhere else (don't recall where) about the bug with regards to deleting apps. Has this bug been fixed?

    I believe the bug had to do with the database errors they were having, where it would completely wipe out a certain database.

    Don't recall seeing this being fixed.

    Pretty sure the issue related to deleting apps from the launcher was fixed in the 3.0.2 update.

    I thought maybe, but I didn't remember for sure. Need to check the changelog.

    If I delete an app on the Touchpad does it effect my Pre? Does it remove it from my profile and therefore not allow me to put it on a new phone?

    I'm having issues with two apps since 10/2011 webOS update. I've checked the forums and no solutions. Could uninstalling and reinstalling hurt? Apps are Time mag and Kindle. Thx
