Thanks for this piece of advice! Yours was the only one which got rid of the unwanted apps permanently. Thank you once again!!! "I know I am much happier" And so am I
I was having this same problem, and have figured out if you open your itunes on the computer on the left under library you will find apps. Click on that and in categories you will find all of the apps you have ever downloaded. click on one and it will display everything in that category, from there click on the app you want to delete and press the delete button on your keyboard, you can then put the app in your trash bin and its gone.
I hope this helps everyone out. I know I am much happier
