How to remove apps from iPad permanently (and also from iTunes library)

When you remove an app from your iPad, iPhone, or iTouch or via the gadget’s Apps sync screen in iTunes it doesn’t remove the app off of your PC. In order to remove an app permanently from your hard disk you have to delete/remove it via the iTunes library.

To perform this, open iTunes and below the Library category choose the Apps. You’ll instantly be at a screen same as the one beneath that exhibits all of the apps installed in the iTunes library and therefore on your PC’s hard disk.

Why do some apps don’t show an “X” button?

You’re not allowed to remove or uninstall the default apps that are pre-installed on your device. These include the Contacts, App Store, Calendar, Game Center, iTunes, etc. You can uninstall some of these apps by switching parental controls on your iGadget.
