Removing a game... Help plz. x]

Hey, so I removed Snail Mail Lite from my iPod, but whenever I sync my iPod, it just keeps getting readded. None of the other games that I've deleted have been readded, only this one. Any ideas?

I already tried deleting it off of my iTunes applications too.

Same here with chip8 Emulator.

Delete it from your computer.

Click on the iPod icon that appears in iTunes and click on the applications tab. Then uncheck the snail mail lite application. It shouldn't sync again. It if is...call apple support.

I think somebody probably beat me to the answer....

plug your ipod into your computer and when the sinc is done delete it manually by going to the applications tab in your ipods homescreen and uncheck it....or just plug in your ipod cancel sync and delete it on your ipod, that always works for me

When you connect your iPod, try unselecting it from the applications list in the applications tab in iTunes.

If that doesn't work, try browsing to your iTunes folder in My Music, and deleting the app file from the Mobile Applications folder.

I would have thought deleting it from applications in iTunes would have worked though .

Did you look to see if it is checked in the applications tab where you can control applications syncing? If not...then look.

Call apple support if you need further help. I am pretty sure this is a case of OE or it might be an id10t issues

Just re-download it. Uncheck it. Then delete it again.
