    Default Uninstalling Apps

    Seems fairly straight forward Settings > Apps > Uninstall. But is there any reason, or a good idea to boot into recovery mode and wipe cache?

    Some people think it can't hurt. I would do it if my phone were having problems. But if I'm just uninstalling an app I first clear the data/cache and then uninstall.

    Actually easier than that. Long press the app in the app drawer and drag it to the top.

    No need to wipe cache unless your phone is having performance or other issues
