I already uninstalled the unwanted applications from my device, but they still show up on "Apps installed on" in my Google Play account. Does it mean that the apps I got rid of are still stored in my phone?

It can take a little time for the web-based Play Store to see what is and isn't installed on your device. You can facilitate that by running the Play Store app on your device. That should kickstart the sync process between your device and the web. –  Al E. Nov 10 '12 at 18:39

In the Play store there is a 'installed' tab which as the name implies is of currently installed applications. The 'all' tab shows apps which have ever been installed on the device.

If you don't want a application to show up in this list, then from the phone open Play store, go into your My Apps and on the All tab you can click the circular remove icon to the right of the app will remove it from your Play account.

This is what it should look like.

That button is new! –  Liam W Nov 10 '12 at 19:22

Sometimes it takes a while until the Play Store syncs with what's installed and what's not. You just have to wait and I haven't any method of making it sync faster.

You'll be waiting a while. I had uninstalled apps sitting in my acct for over a year. –  Jeffrey Kemp Dec 20 '13 at 14:38

Go to settings > accounts > google, and click the synch all button at the bottom.
