    How does one delete apps from a Nook HD?

      Yes, I've read that you just tap and hold the app you want to delete and a pop-up menu should give you the option to delete, but I don't have that option!!  The only options that come up are "Add to Home" and "Add to Shelf".

      Help??  

       

      Thanks! Lisa

          The only reason I can think of that it won't allow you to delete an app, archive it or move it to the cloud (something you might want to do with a purchased app so you don't have to rebuy it later if you decide you want it) is that it is one of the stock apps that come with the device. Those apps can not be deleted.

           

          You may choose to remove it from the home page if they are bothering you but you can't delete them.

            BN pre-installed apps cannot be deleted.

              I have this issue. The plats vs zombies 2 app I installed does not work "Unfortunately shop has stoppe" the icon does not have the option to move to clous or delete and it does not appear on the app list under settings.

               

              Any suggestions on how to remove it. Can you remove a app manually from a pc?

                  That's the message you get when there is no app installed. So there is nothing to uninstall. You want to delete the useless icon, but the Nook software provides no way to do that! You can hide app icons, but not delete them. Stupid.

                    PvZ2 is a Google Play app.  You can only manage those apps through the Play Store app, the Nook functions only work for Nook content.
