    Had android phone for about three weeks.
    Samsung Galaxy S (T-Mobile UK)
    Loving it to bits, but as per usual there have to be "but's".
    so, BUT, i hate uninstallation procedure and how you cannot uninstall stuff without going through millions of annoying "are you sure", "done", "ok" buttons.

    It's a problem because, as should be expected, i jumped into app downloading pretty deep. So now i have boatloads of stuff needing uninstallation and the process put me to sleep yesterday, very literally. I havent even gone fifth of the way to intended uninstallation target...

    Got some apps that supposedly do batch uninstall, but you still have to mash, "uninstall" and "done" buttons for every single uninstalled app, which kind of defeats "batch uninstallation" purpose...

    Any ideas on the app, where i can select, push "uninstall" and forget about the rest ?

    I do understand the risks, btw, you dont have to tell me.

    Thanks for listening...

    You can use adb (Android sdk) to uninstall applications silently. Connect the phone through the usb cable to your computer. Go to android shell, do a ps, and then you can do a silent uninstall based on the main class by just running the command.

    You will have to explore android sdk.
