    Hi,

    An app I've downloaded isn't working properly. The application supporters have advised me to remove the app from my phone completely and then download it again from the play store.

    However when I uninstall the app I am not given the option to download it from the play store, but only to install it.

    How can I remove the app completely so I can download it again?

    The terms are interchangeable - when they say download it, they mean press the Install button in the Play store. That downloads and installs it.

    "INSTALL", is the terminology that is used on the Play Store for all apps that are not on your phone and that need to be downloaded and installed. Try it with an app you have never had on your phone and see.


    EDIT As per Rukbat's post.

    Not even a word.

    Order issued by the Czar, regarding the Czarina's lover:

    Pardon impossible, to be sent to Siberia.

    As written by his sympathetic-to-the-Czarina secretary:

    Pardon, impossible to be sent to Siberia.
