  2. Right-click on the Installed button near the top of the app listing and select "Inspect Element"
  3. A few lines above the highlighted line in the element inspector you should see something that says data-ispurchased="true". Double-click on true and change it to false and hit enter.
  4. Close the element inspector and click on the same Installed button that you right-clicked on earlier. It should proceed as if it's not currently installed on your device.
Does this make it so I can put it on my homescreen? Right now I have to slide over a screen to the search bar widget, tap mic, then say, "map pizza" or whatever.
