Android App Manager

Have you ever wondered how to get rid of all these unwanted and unnecessary apps on smart phones, pre-installed by manufacturers and providers, also known as bloatware, spying on your phone and affecting the performance negative? However, removing or disabling of such apps is often not possible without root access on the phone. Here comes my solution. A Windows application that connects to an Android device and allows you to uninstall, disable or enable installed apps.

The following conditions must be met:

  • «USB debugging» must be activated (see below).
  • The device must be connected to the computer with a data cable. Make sure that Windows recognizes the device and installs the correct driver. Please note that some devices allow debugging only in file transfer mode.

Activate USB debugging

  1. Start the settings of the device and press the search symbol.

  2. Type «build» and press «Build number» in the list below.

  3. Press «Build number» 7 times till you see a message «Developer mode has been turned on».

  4. Go back to the search, type «usb» and press «USB debugging» in the list below.

  5. Switch ON «USB debugging».

How to do

  1. Download and start the application on a Windows computer. The download is available at the end of this post. If all conditions met press «START».

  2. Accept the permission request on the device.

  3. You will see the list of application IDs of all installed apps. Double click on an application ID to find the app in the Google Play Store. Set the checkmark in front of a application ID. To uninstall press the «Uninstall» button. To disable press the «Disable» button. To enable press the «Enable» button.

The use of this application is at your own risk. You have to know which app you want to uninstall or disable. If you uninstall the wrong or a mandatory app, you'll need to reset your device. First, disable an app to see if it's not dangerous to uninstall.
