AVG Uninstaller is a FREE app that lets you quickly view the last time you used an app and tells you how much battery, data, and space it’s using. You can then choose to remove those apps you no longer want or use to free up space for the apps you really want and to help improve your device’s performance. AVG Uninstaller can also be scheduled to periodically let you know which apps are eating up your memory and which are not frequently used.
What are the minimum system requirements for installing and running AVG Uninstaller?
To install and run AVG Uninstaller, you need a smartphone or tablet running Android 2.2 or higher.
Can I use the app on both a smartphone and tablet?
Yes. AVG Uninstaller can run on both Android phones and tablets, but the app layout is phone oriented.
What does “Sort by App Usage” do?
Tapping “Sort by App Usage” will display a list of apps along with the number of days each app has gone unused and the amount of memory that each is taking up. This list is sorted by the number of days each app has gone unused.
Note: After activating AVG Uninstaller, it will take 72 hours for the “App Usage” feature to learn which of your apps are being least used. Then tap the “App Usage” tile after 72 hours to see which apps you use the least.
What does “Sort by Battery Usage” do?
Tapping “Sort by Battery Usage” will display a list of apps along with the number of days each app has gone unused and the percent of battery each app has consumed in the past 7 days. This list is sorted by percentage of battery consumption in descending order.
What does “Sort by Data Usage” do?
Tapping “Sort by Data Usage” will display a list of apps along with the number of days each app has gone unused and the amount of data (WiFi + cellular data combined) that each has consumed since your device was last rebooted.
Note: AVG Uninstaller measures battery usage differently than the Android operating system. While Android measures the battery usage of different system services, AVG Uninstaller measures the amount of battery used by each of your apps for the past seven days.
What does “Sort by Storage Usage” do?
Tapping “Sort by Storage Usage” will display a list of apps along with the number of days each app has gone unused and the amount of space in megabytes that each is taking up on your device or SD card.
Why do I sometimes not see the last time that an app was used?
If nothing appears written under the app name it is because either that app has never been used or AVG Uninstaller had not been yet installed on your device when that app was last used.
What happens when I select multiple apps to uninstall?
Upon selecting an app from the list, you will be asked to confirm its uninstallation. When selecting multiple apps, you will need to confirm each uninstallation. This is to prevent you from accidentally uninstalling something you would rather keep.
Can you uninstall apps that have device administrator permissions?
Yes. If an app has device administrator permissions, you will be prompted to first remove it from the Device Administrator list here: Device Settings > Security > Device Administrator. After you have removed it from this list, the uninstallation process will continue.
Some of my apps are not listed or are listed and cannot be uninstalled. Why?
AVG Uninstaller does not uninstall:
System apps or services that are part of the Android OS. The operating system does not allow us to uninstall these.
Pre-installed apps that came with your device and cannot be removed.
What does the information displayed under the tiles on the main screen mean?
This information shows you the total number of apps that you have uninstalled and total amount of space you have saved since installing AVG Uninstaller.
Which app settings can I change?
The following general settings can be changed:
Advisor Frequency – Tapping this setting will allow you to choose the frequency that the advisor will suggest apps to be uninstalled (weekly by default)
App sizes to include – Tapping this setting will allow you to choose the minimum app size to include (5 MB and up by default)
Unused Frequency - Tapping this setting will allow you to choose the minimum number of days to include (at least 1 week by default)
Note: ‘Advisor settings’ are also used by the advisor. Thus, the advisor will display any app that reaches the thresholds of both size and frequency.
