I would like to remove an app which I accidentally purcahsed (it was free). I don't want to install the app because I already own the same app from the Andoid Market and I don't want to over-write my existing data... How do I remove it?? The amazon.com instructions say to "Check the box "Don't include this in the new apps list"." I have no idea where to look for this button... PLEASE HELP!!
I have the same problem. I called Amazon to try and address the issue. They confirmed the online documentation is incorrect and that feature doesn't currently exist. The guy I spoke with had no immediate answer to fix the problem. He said he would let the appropriate people know about the documentation and my issue. I requested they manually remove the fee app from my account to stop this, of which he passed that request along as well. Hopefully they get this fixed soon and give us the ability to remove stuff from our accounts.
I will try to give them a call too and request that the purchase be removed from my account... The current amazon marketplace app is effecting my battery life by continuously sending me notifications for an "update" ready to be installed for the unwanted app.
well, you already got it.. but just because it has an install button doesn't mean you have to install it... it will just sit in your app list on amazon.. i wouldn't worry about it.. just don't press the install button... oh and even if you press install which i wouldn't... it probably won't delete your data that is already on your android device.
I have the same problem!! I've tried a lot of the free apps then uninstalled them if I didn't like them... now anytime I download an app they're all just sitting there, 39 useless apps that make it harder to get to the new app I'm downloading.
I think it is a big deal. Why wouldn't there be a delete option? That's just dumb. They can't assume that we're going to love every single app we download. I want to get rid of several like I can on the android market.
I agree this is an issue!! There needs to be a way to Uninstall an App through the Amazon App-Store (AAS). Because there is no ability to do this, the app never gets removed from the App list in the AAS. There should be an option to remove the app permanently. I typically will download the free app of the day and then try it out days or weeks later. Hating some of them... I'd love to be able to TRULY get rid of them.
AGREED this is definatly something that needs to be looked into as i had to rebuild my device and i dont want all the apps reinstalled that i have used at one time or another and i dont want it sitting with 50 apps waiting to install either
Ok, so this thread started 7 months ago, whats taking so long? You think these people above me were wrong in there analysis? Fyi I'm about to DELETE YOUR ENTIRE MARKETPLACE, because I can't delete an app; get it? No more $ for you.
People with money and power need to remember who they got that from, and maybe listen when the givers make a gripe.
Just a half-baked fix but it has been working OK for me (would probably be too much of a pain for those of you who have collected a whole pile of "Apps to Install"). When I had 2-3 free apps that I wanted to remove from the list, I tried installing them anyway, then immediately uninstalling them, and have continued to do this so my list of "Apps to Install" stays a manageable size. This worked for the most part but, believe it or not, a few just throw themselves right back on the list at random times (which I install and remove again). This temporary fix is also a real pain so I am still also waiting anxiously for them to really fix it properly (but at least it is only a small bit of pain each time I have to go through this ridiculous process in order to keep my list "clean".) And, as I said, I only ever do this with the free apps.
AGREED!!!! I usually download a lot of the free apps for the day and uninstall if I don't like them. But of course just like everybody else they sit in my history and I can't remove them. PLEASE FIX THIS AMAZON!!!
I'm in the same boat as most people here. I have several free/demo apps that I don't want on my phone or in my AppStore list. Even saw the support page with the "removal instructions" mentioned by the original poster. Over the last couple months, I've called Amazon twice and written several emails. So far, Amazon has "passed along the request" and done nothing. Pretty sad.
ADD THE FEATURE, AMAZON! PEOPLE ARE AVOIDING YOUR APPSTORE DUE TO THIS FUNDAMENTAL FLAW! THANK YOU!
As the original creator of this discussion, I am happy to see that I am not alone! In the past months, I have called Amazon multiple times with this complaint and have gotten the run around each time. I have since stopped using the Amazon app store for two reasons: 1) the obvious -- inability to remove the purchased apps from the list and 2) lack of timely updates for the apps I have purchased.
I wish they would just get removed from the list of my owned apps even if they still have me down as owning it... or if they could make a new list of archived apps that just doesn't show up anywhere unless you actively search for it.
