Ice Cream Sandwich has brought a number of new features to Android, and many of them will make your life a lot easier.


One in particular that will make de-cluttering your phone easier is the ability to quick uninstall.


On the home screen, you can just hold down on an app icon to let you drag it somewhere, but you’ll also see a couple of menus pop up if you leave it long enough.


One of them will be the option to quick uninstall. Click on the option, then you can get rid of the app and de-clutter your phone.
