Use Easy Uninstaller to quickly remove downloaded apps

Too many apps installed? Here's a quick way to get rid of multiple apps at the same time, without having to open Google Play or the Settings menu.

Easy Uninstaller

When looking for an app that does something in particular, you may find yourself installing a handful or two for a bit of trial and error. While space on your device may not be an issue, you won't want to keep all of the apps that fail to perform the way you need them to. At this point, you're faced with the fun task of either going to the Google Play Store, or opening the Applications menu in the Settings area, to remove the apps you don't want. How fun! OK, not really.

If this is a situation you find yourself in often, perhaps it's time to download a utility like Easy Uninstaller. This app makes the hassle of uninstalling other apps you don't want to keep a breeze. Here's how to get started:

Step 1: Install a copy of Easy Uninstaller on your Android device. Warning: high irony levels.

Step 2: After opening the app, scroll through the list of apps and check the boxes next to the apps you want to remove.

Please note: This is not an alternative way to remove bloatware that is installed by your carrier. However, if you are running on the latest version of Jelly Bean, you may be able to disable some of these apps from running. Check out Jason Cipriani's guide on how to disable preinstalled apps .

Step 3: Tap the green Uninstall button at the bottom of the screen. The apps you selected will be removed from your Android.

What kinds of apps do you find yourself downloading by the handful, only to remove many or all of them?
