    I actually added the whole list except my email programs. Getting easy 12-14 hrs on battery with good use.

    I was able to Uninstall the "Social Location 2.0" app finally by using Titanium Backup Pro.
    1. open Titanium backup pro
    2. go to Backup/Restore tab at the top
    3. do a Filter search for "Social"
    4. then long pressed the app you really despise
    5. Selected "Convert to user app"
    6. then i was able to go into my uninstaller app and uninstall Social Location just like any other app.
    its not running anymore or showing up on my battery usage at all.
    kinda sucks this app was so poorly designed because after using it for a second it seemed kinda cool.

    -edit-
    after fooling around with 'Titanium Backup Pro' i think you can just press the app and select uninstall. should work more easy lol

    -edit again lol-
    after uninstalling the app my battery usage % shows an app named "com.aloqa.me.client_modules" which is the process the Social Location app was using when installed. I don't think its still running tho.

    What's the battery usage of this process? Do you remember if it was high, like Social Location itself?
