    Don't press on that strikethrough circle icon on the right side, long press on the left side at the app's icon instead.
    And selecting the rest goes the same, but just tap (not long press ! ) on the left side at the app's icon.

    When you've all apps selected then tap on the strikethrough circle icon at the upper right corner to delete them :)

    when i go into playstore i hit the menu soft key on my lg esteem. brings up a menu on the bottom which says.. my apps, my wishlist, redeem..etc . i touch my apps. takes me to the ALL apps. i long press on the first left side icon wich is alarmdroid.. but nothing pops up and if i let go itll take me into the alarmdroid page. its just frustrating knowing we can delete multipe apps and i cant lol.

    I take it, that you are able to delete a single app (e.g. AlarmDroid) from the ALL list, using the strikethrough circle icon on the right side of AlarmDroid, aren't you?

    If so, then a long press on the left side of an app at the ALL list should highlight this app and the ALL page should go in the multi-select mode (header shows the count of the selected apps).

    If you can't reach this multi-select mode, you might uninstall the Play Store app's updates and updates it again.
    Settings, Apps, All, Google Play Store, Uninstall updates ...

    For the life of me! it doesnt work. :(

    im able to do it on my tablet but, and yes i can single delete apps using the strikethrough circle icon. but when i hold down and long press the first second or third app icons, the multi select option on top do not show and will take me to the app info itself.

    You are aware that this will only work for apps that are no longer installed on your device?

    If I misread what you wrote above, I apologize, but you long press on the first selection. That enters you in the multi-select mode. After the first, you only tap (not long press) on the other apps to select them. Apps that your are not allowed to select will be greyed out.
