NOTE: Of late, I have been getting requests for very trivial problems that many of you are facing in your day-to-day work. This blog is not to solve your "project" problems - surely not a "Support" site.
I just love to share my knowledge in my spare time and would appreciate any questions or feedback on the articles and code I have shared. I also do appreciate thought-provoking questions that would lead me to write more articles and share.
But please do not put your day-to-day trivial problems here. Even if you do, you most probably would not get a response here.

Delete / Remove Android Applications deployed on Emulator

First, make sure the emulator is running. Then follow below steps:

1. Go to the tools directory in command prompt –
2. Type
adb shell
3. #
cd /data/app (this takes you to the folder where all apk files are installed)
#ls (It will display all the .apk installed in your emulator)
5. #
rm ***.apk (which you want to remove, all apk files)
exit (exits from the adb shell)

NOTE: to start the emulator, you can start it from eclipse by right clicking an android project and “run as” an “application” or by going to tools directory at command prompt and typing “emulator –avd <avd_name>”
