    Thanks, but when I tap on the app I only have 2 choices. Either “Force Stop”, or “Uninstall updates”. I want to uninstall the app entirely/

      what you really do is go to apps then once in that press the button down the bottom (off the screen) the one that lights up and select unistall apps and delete your apps you down want

    Got an app that has a tab that is on the side of the screen. Doesn’t matter what screen. You can add a remove apps to the tab. you can tap the tab and it expands to show shortcuts. How do I get rid of this? I did not intentionally load this. I don’t know the name of the app. I have looked in the App manager.

    Tx,useful but 1) you can go straight into Settings from anywhere & 2) the Galaxy does not let you uninstall apps like Dropbox that came installed on the device :-(

    you can go to settings – and the to “wireless and networks” and uncheck mobile networks – then it won’t let you run data requiring things unless you are on verizon – only on a wireless network which doesn’t take up data

      If you are running Android 4.4 (KitKat) on your S3 then follow the following steps to delete apps / games:

      1. Open Apps Menu (by Tapping on Apps Icon in Home Screen)
      2. Tap and Hold (Long Press) the Icon of the App you want to Delete / Uninstall.
      3. Drag and drop the App icon to Top Left (where it says uninstall)
      4. That’s it!
