First Method

The first method is the easiest – Go to Apps – select the app & uninstall it in a few seconds. Let’s see this Let’s assume you want to uninstall this app called Freefall Go to Apps Find the app. Here is the app Keep your finger on this for some time you will see 4 different icons on top. Drag the app to the Uninstall icon on top you will receive an alert that the app will be uninstalled, Click on Uninstall. The icon of the app has disappeared from our screen. If you go to Apps you will not be able to find that App, this means that this app has been uninstalled now.

Second Method

The second way is also easy but it involves a few steps you can go to Settings & Application Manager & uninstall the app from there. Let’s see how to do this we will have to go the phone Settings Click & Open the phone Settings Scroll down to Applications Select & Open the Application Manager. The Application Manager is opening up, These are all the apps that are downloaded on my mobile. These are the apps on the SD card These are all the cached processes which are currently running on the phone. You can see your system RAM here, how much of the system RAM is being consumed by apps, And how much system RAM is free right now.

It is important to note that these apps have a problem. The problem with these apps is that it is difficult to uninstall pre-installed apps.

Fourth Method
