Removing installed apps from device.

Uninstalling refers to removing apps from Android devices. 3rd-party apps that were downloaded from Android Market, or side-loaded from other sources, can be easily removed via system settings.

However, apps that come pre-installed with devices by manufacturers or carriers usually reside on a read-only /system partition, and therefore can only be removed after gaining root privileges.
