Okay, I delteted the app from my iPhone, but iTunes wants to reinstall it. No obvious way to delete the app from iTunes. Of course, when I find out how, it will be facepalm time.

 

Thanks,

When you want to delete and app from Itunes to get it out of your library you need to click on the 'apps' in your itunes library, not the 'app' on your device.  So look on the left column of itunes, Under the heading LIBRARY you'll see APPS, in that window if you right click on a MAC or PC you can delete the app from your library forever.

If you really want to get rid of it: iTunes>Library>Apps...right-click the app you want to delete, select delete, when prompted, move all files to trash, empty your trash. Then, make sure you first delete the app on your phone, then sync your phone. The app and all traces of its data will be gone.

    Go to the apps folder in iTunes on your PC and delete it from there. This will prevent the app from reinstalling.

    Thanks for the responses!

     

    Path to get to iPhone Apps in 10.6.7 is:

     

    Users::your_name::Music::iTunes::Mobile Applications

     

    It would have been easier to just search for the App name, duh. Hindsight is so 20/20.

    Ahhh, Apple very cleverly hid this function. Delete App returns no help in Help, either. Thanks!
