Can you delete apps or only hide them?

    Hi guys,

    I want to delete a couple apps that are pointless but I was unable to do this.

    Can we delete them or is hiding them the only option? These apps were pre-installed and came with the box like YuppTV.

    Thank you

    Is there any way to at least disable notifications for certain apps? Like the OP, I'm talking about YuppTV in particular. It occasionally gives me notifications that I don't care about.. I don't use the app at all. Thx.

    No.

    When you "hide" a native app, it won't disable the app, and you'll still get update notifications, etc. I'd like to just eliminate some of the native apps, myself, but at least with the "hide" feature you can clean up some clutter in the "All Apps" section.

    Another thing that you can do is "hide" apps in the "All Apps" section that are just repeated on your Home Screen icon line up. In other words, if you have, for example, the "Chrome" app on the home screen, and that same Chrome app also appears in the All Apps section, you can "hide" the one in the All Apps section, but the Chrome App on the home page will remain there, intact. I.e., "hiding" an app in the All Apps section won't affect the home page line up.

    So, if you have, say ,7 native apps on the home screen, and those same 7 apps are repeated in the All Apps section, you can "hide" them and remove 7 "repeat-apps" from showing in the All Apps section.

    Of course, unless you want these apps to appear in both the home page and the All Apps section.
