Default Deleting Apps

Please Login to Remove!

Maybe I'm missing something, but can someone let me know how to delete unwanted apps from the playbook ?

I thought it would be thru the Desktop Software but i cant seem to be able to access the apps on the playbook.

Thanks

Open App World on the PlayBook, go to My World, see the list of installed apps and there is an option to delete each one.

Thanks daphne, but I was refering more to the apps that don't show up in App World, like AOL mail, Yahoo Mail etc...

Is there some way to delete these from the playbook ?

Tap and hold on an icon until they all start wiggling. For apps that can be deleted, a small trash can icon will appear beneath the icons. Tap that, and the program is gone. Swipe from the bottom up to stop the wiggling.

Be forewarned, however, that if you delete certain pre-installed apps, you will receive notice of a small OS update that is nothing more than the OS attempting to reinstall those deleted apps. I don't think the shortcuts (AOL, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) fall into that category, but I'm not sure.
