    Anyone else having trouble with apps taking forever to uninstall after the Jelly Bean upgrade? By "forever" I mean a couple of minutes or more instead of a couple seconds!

    I thought that this might have something to do with my using the tablet for Android app development, but I just uninstalled Google Currents and it likewise took several minutes to finish.

    It turned out to be due to a specific app that apparently creates tons of file in its cache, which Android apparently has to search through for every app install/uninstall operation. The guilty party? Google Currents!

    I never used this app anyway since I found it basically useless, so deleting it was no issue, and now my installs & uninstalls are back to normal.
