    Uninstall Update??

    Updated an app & now realized that updated app isn't as good. On other phone, I was able to uninstall the update. Does anyone know if there is as way to do that on ics? Doesn't appear to be that I can see.
    Thx!

    Go to menu >Settings >apps>downloaded find the app and see if it allows you uninstall updates in upper right of the display. If it doesn't give you the option to uninstall updates then uninstall the app and download it again.

    Well there may be another way but I don't know what it. There is a way to keep from getting updates on apps but you have to be rooted and use something like Titanium Backup and freeze the app. That will keep it from getting updated, but then you can't use the app because it is frozen...Catch 22.

    Just to add to this; Normally, if you uninstall an app & reinstall it, you'll be installing the newer version. Also, if you have the app set so it doesn't auto update, you'll have to do it manually. I do this with Tapatalk because the newest version broke some moderating capabilities.

    What app is it? You could email the dev & ask for help.
