    Hi. I am new to the droid forum, as well as, a new android Incredible user. I am not sure if I like my switch from BB, but that is unrelated to my question. My kids were playing with the Talking Tom app @ the doctor's office, and since then, I have noticed that 2 more apps were downloaded. They were obviously free since I have been waiting for 3 days with paid apps being in the "authorizing" phase, and I don't know how to get them off. These are not pre-installed apps. I have tried everything I know intuitively to do (which isn't a lot), so any help would be greatly appreciated! I am not familiar with android lingo, so please make any suggestion(s) in dummy form. Thanks so very much :)

    Press the menu button while on your home screen. Select settings. Scroll down to applications and select it. Now chose manage applications. Find the 2 apps and select one at a time. Once you select an app it will take you to a screen that has the option to uninstall.

    Or go into the market and hit the menu button. Chose the downloads option. This will take you to a screen that shows all your downloads. Select the apps you disapprove of and you should see the uninstall option.
