How Do I Get Rid of That App?

A reader has a question about the weather app on their phone:

“ZTE uses a fake Accuweather app that doesn’t show up anywhere on my Blade. It should be called ‘inaccuweather.’ Right now it is 12 degrees off after refreshing. Does anybody have any suggestions? I removed it from my home screen and it’s not in my apps.”

It sounds like that app comes pre-installed as part of your phone system and cannot be removed. Many phone manufacturers have apps like these. Removing it from your home screen is the best option. You can then download the weather app you prefer and put it (or a widget for it) on your home screen.
