Uninstall Installous Apps Let say you have installed an app from installous. How do you uninstall it?

    Here is how:

    1. Make sure the phone is on and navigate to the "Home" screen where all icons of the iPhone applications show on the screen. If you've ever moved the icons or rearranged them on the screen, you already know the basics of how to delete apps from the library. If you've never done it before, don't worry - here's all you have to do in three simple steps.

    2. With the application icons showing on the iPhone home screen, touch and hold one of them (it doesn't matter which one) until they all start to appear to wobble on the screen. You'll notice that you can touch and drag them to any spot on the screen now, even to the bottom "favorites" area.

    3. You'll also notice while the icons are wobbling that they now have a small X in the upper left corners. *(only on those apps you've added, not those that came with the phone.) Here's the secret step, touch the little black X and you'll get a pop-up dialogue box which warns "Deleting [application name] will also delete all of it's data" and gives you two choices - "Delete" or "Cancel" - so click "Delete" and you're done - the iPhone app is gone.

    4. Press the "Home" button (bottom center) and the icons stop wiggling on the screen and the "X's" go away. Congratulations you've deleted an iPhone application!

How to get rid of unwanted apps step by step

Hi some apps are factory installed and can't be uninstalled. If it's an android click on the "apps" icon on your screen... Then click on google "play store"... The top left side you'll see 3 horizontal lines click it and a window slides "my apps & games" then click the app you want to uninstall... If it's not a factory installed app you'll see a button left side "UNINSTALL"... Click that and you're done...I hope this helped..

How to get Installous on your iPod, iPhone, or iPad.

Note that, like jailbreaking and using Cydia, installing Installous is perfectly legal, however using it to pirate paid apps is illegal. While the risks are very low and most apps are only $.99, you can still get in trouble. Do so at your own risk.

Anyways, now that that boring disclaimer talk is over, let's get on to getting Installous! You will of course need your iOS device, and it will NEED to be jailbroken, and has to have Cydia. If you haven't jailbroken or don't have Cydia, click here to be taken to my guide on doing that on the latest version (4.3.1).

Step 1) Open Cydia and go to the Manage tab, and press the Sources button.

Step 2) On the top right corner there should be an edit button. Press it, and now on the top right corner there should be a button that says Add. Press that and type in

Step 3) Now that the repository is added, make sure you're still at the Sources screen and press the newly added source. You should now see all of the available apps from Hackulo in alphabetical order, one of which is Installous. Scroll down to Installous and press it, then press Install.

Step 4) Cydia should run some things to download and install Installous for you, and when done, Installous will be the last app on the last page you have. You are now done. Congratulations!

How to get all the apps on the app store for free

Have you ever wanted an app but not had the money to pay for it, or saw an app that looked cool but you wanted to test it before buying, then I'm here to help. First you must jailbreak your ios device and install cydia. If you haven't done this look up my guide "How to jailbreak your iphone". In cydia go to manage(its at the bottom in the middle its a book looking symbol), then sources>edit(top right)>add(top left) and type in then press add source. once the source has downloaded click on it(it will be in sources) and scroll down to installous 4 or whatever version is out at the time of your reading and choose it, press install and after it installs you should have the installous symbol in your apps. In installous click on search and type n the app you want click on the vendor to get it from and wall-a you'll get the app. By the way installous is much slower than the app store and you cant close it while an app is downloading so be patient. Once your app is downloaded it will be under downloads click on it and press install and it will be in your apps.

I need to know how to uninstall muliple apps of the same thing

Uninstall, disable, and delete apps You can remove apps from your device if you don't want them anymore or you need to clear memory space. If you uninstall an app you paid for, you can reinstall it later without buying it again.

Uninstall or disable apps

  1. Go to your device's Settings app .
  2. Select Apps or Application manager.
  3. Touch the app you want to uninstall. You may need to swipe right or left to find the app.
  4. Touch Uninstall or Disable.

Uninstall vs. disable

There are two ways to remove apps depending on whether you downloaded the app or if it came preinstalled on your device:
  • Uninstall downloaded apps: If you downloaded an app from Google Play, you can completely remove it from your device.
  • Disable preinstalled apps: Some apps come preinstalled on your device. You can disable these apps, but you can't remove them completely. After an app has been disabled, it will be hidden on your device.
Note: Disabling a system app may cause other apps to misbehave and will delete your associated data for that app.

I want to delete apps from my Nokia Lumia phone, how do I do that?

  1. On the start screen, swipe left to the apps menu.
  2. Tap and hold the app, and tap uninstall. You may not be able to remove some apps. If you remove an app, you may be able to reinstall without buying again, as long as the app is available in Store.
    If an installed app depends on a removed app, the installed app may stop working. For details, see the user documentation of the installed app.
