Apps for May 18, 2012

Go Uninstaller

The GO DEV team has created a bunch of very useful (and free) apps, such as GO Launcher EX, GO Locker, GO SMS, etc. Most of GO DEV team apps also include the ability to be custom themed resulting in dozens (hundreds?) of downloadable themes from Play Store. With so many apps and themes floating around, it can often be hard (especially with themes) to keep track of all GO DEV apps/themes and, as a result, it can be annoying to try to uninstall a GO DEV app or theme once you decide you no longer want it. This is where Go Uninstaller comes into play.

Go Uninstaller is an uninstaller that specifically keeps track of GO DEV apps and associated widgets/plugins/themes, allowing you to easily uninstall GO DEV apps and associated widgets/plugins/themes in one click. In other words, no longer do you need to look through a long list of apps to uninstall GO DEV apps/themes/widgets/plugins.
