I have a couple of stupid apps like spanish, urbanspoon and myLite and I want to delete them. Ive deleted one before on iTunes from the applications link but now when I click that link it only shows my other apps and not those 3.

Ive closed the program and sync'd like 5 times and it still doens't show up...any suggestions

Hold down any of the icons on your home screen and they will all start to shake. All the app store programs will show an X in the upper left corner.

Tap the X and the program will delete.

Yeah you have to delete them from iTunes and from the phone, or they will keep coming back when syncing.

wow my phone is really messed up. I tried holding down the home button but nothing happens. Even as I type this on my phone the screen is jumping all over the place.

Looks like I'll be changing to 1.1.4

Wish I could even do that. I'm at work and I still cant get the icons to shake by holding the home button.

Come to think of it, my phone was perfectly fine until I installed "myLite" last night and today it's all messed up

The icons shake when you tap and hold an ICON, not the home button.

Ahhh! I'm such a dumb ass. It works now. Still don't know why it's not on iTunes though

Well I cant delete an app on iTunes that isn't there. That was the original problem. Even though it was on my phone and I sync'd like 3 times it wouldn't show on iTunes. I just deleted it on my phone and now it is gone for good
