    I know I'm missing something, but .....

    I want to delete Google Currents. It's an app i installed. It also uses data when it hasn't even been opened or used.

    I go to play store, it says I can open or uninstall all updates. I uninstall all updates.

    It still shows in my app lit, ow as needing updates.

    So how do I uninstall this thing?

    You can't delete it from the phone? The app has to be deleted, no?

    Correct. Although i did just remember settings, apps, manage,mselct, uninstall. That seemed to work. Thought we used to delete from App Store? Maybe 1000 miles of driving in 3 days affected my brain as well as my back.

    Don't think I have ever deleted an app from the App Store. Would never even think to do it that way.

    Maybe I just dreamed that. And google current appears to now be defined as a base android app and can't be deleted. I've set it to be disabled instead,

    In the future, long press on the app in the app drawer, drag to the top of the screen where it says uninstall.

    (You still have the Nexus right?)

    If you want to delete the system inbuilt or stock apps from the device.... Rooting would help.

    Apps installed by the user should never require rooting. What are you talking about?

    Sorry for the misunderstanding... I have edited my answer... I just mixed the custom ones with the stock ones.. Hope now it's good
