Sounded like he wanted to do it the hard way...But if you want really easy, I'd suggest installing AppMonster. Great program. Look for it in the apps section of the forum.

But one things bothers me... the internal memory where the apps are installed is somewhat limited in size, so I want to keep my apps to a minimum. Leaving room for apps that are really necessary... like games and stuff <grin>

This is the standard uninstall feature of Android and works with any Home Launcher.

Does 'adb uninstall whatever.apk' actually work for anyone? Never has for me:
C:novel>adb uninstall frozenbubble_v1.6.apk.apkFailureC:novel>adb uninstall frozenbubble_v1.6.apkFailureC:novel>adb uninstall frozenbubble_v1.6FailureC:novel>adb uninstall frozenbubble*FailureC:novel>
Maybe I'm doing it wrong, I dunno...?

adb uninstall did not work for me either.Instuctions say:adb uninstall [-k] <package> - remove this app package from the deviceFor install it says:adb install [-l] [-r] [-s] <file> - push this package file to the device and install itI think you need to know thpackage name on the PDN once installed which differes from the name of the .apk file.Easiest way to uninstall I've seen is to uninstall from the PDN.

Leaving room for apps that are really necessary... like games and stuff <grin>[/QUOTE'] Just for the record, I'm closing in on about 100 apps installed and at least 3 of those have the ability to uninstall apps directly from the Novel.- App Monster- Apps Organizer - Quick UninstallerAnd the rest of my apps are widgets, games and other fun stuff. Almost all of which can be found in the apps section of the forum. I may have to update it again tomorrow because I keep adding more apps! I have yet to get the warning messages I get on my Droid about running out of space for apps, but even more reason to try and get Froyo (2.2) on this thing! Install apps to SD card! (A boy can dream...)

adb uninstall success (finally):
Code:
C:novel>adb shell# cd datacd data# cd appcd app# lslscom.twidroid.apkcom.pandora.android.apkcom.curvefish.widgets.wifionoff.apkorg.jfedor.frozenbubble.apk(....)com.pgmsoft.wifinder.apkcom.nd.android.pandahome.apkcom.rechild.advancedtaskkiller.apkBandB.Tool.QuickUninstaller.apkcom.google.android.youtube.apk# exitexitC:novel>adb uninstall org.jfedor.frozenbubble.apkFailureC:novel>adb uninstall org.jfedor.frozenbubbleSuccessC:novel>
So you do indeed need the installed name, minus the .apk at the end.
