    I'm not talking about deleting the .apk's from the phone/SD card but rather how to remove deleted apps from the 'My Apps' list. With the daily free app there have been a number of programs that I have downloaded, installed, and decided to remove. I cannot figure out how to remove them from the 'My App|New' tab...

    It's in My Apps in case you want to use it again. You downloaded so it is yours now. You can't remove anything from it.

    That's just dumb...I uninstalled for a reason, so I should have the option to get rid of it entirely. Time to drop an e-mail to the dev.

    Thanks for the reply

    Why would you want to get rid of it? It isn't taking up space on your phone, and if you change your mind later you can reinstall the app without possibly having to pay for it.

    I'm just not sure I understand your concerns.

    I can't speak for nvrfgt343, but I would like to delete the unused apps from showing in the Amazon my apps because I don't want to accidentally install them again. I uninstalled some apps because I either didn't like it, didn't use it or it just didn't work the way I thought it would. When Amazon notifies of updates to apps, most times its telling me about the apps I uninstalled. That's a annoying.

    Why would I want to keep a long list of apps I didn't like? A delete option would be trivial to implement...
