I´ve been testing some appstore markets present out there, and now I can't find a way to uninstall the ones I don't need. I am particularly interested to uninstall SlideME and F-Droid, but I also can't find a way to uninstall Warehous and 1Mobile Market if I would want to do that in the future. Please, share the knowledge about this very irritating issue.

@slehtonen85 Could you please tell us how, because I can't find any android markets in app lists?

If you don't have them in your app list, how do you use them?

Just press and hold anywhere in the list of apps and you can remove them.

But if they are not not in his app list?

I don't think that procedure uninstalls anything. It just removes the launcher from launch screen. Please, correct me if I'm wrong.

https://jolla.com/guide/ There it says you can remove the ones you don't wan't, so i think the apps are deleted. It is possible that some data remains somewhere. but the app is still removed.

What would be the point in only removing the launcher for the app but not the app itself? It removes the app. It is possible that some app data is left behind, so you'll have to look for and remove that by yourself.

Ok, looks like I missed something here. Now it seems like removing launcher, also uninstalls the app itself. Last time I tested, that was not what happened. Thanks for your input, guys! :)
