    Games & apps delete


    Hello,

    How do we delete games and apps that we have downloaded? For example i have Angry Birds installed in the Your Apps screen. Since the game refuse to load i would like to re-download it from the store. So , since it says that it's intalled i can't re-download it. Also ,where is the location of the downloaded apps, maybe i could go there , and delete it from there?
    Thanks.
