Can’t uninstall Flipboard

Bit odd. I never use Flipboard but appear to have it installed on  my droid and it occasionally attracts my attention somehow. I decided to uninstall the app but it doesn’t seem to want to let me. It offers me the opportunity to stop updating or disable it but not uninstall. Doesn’t seem right. Is it a core android feature or have Flipboard done z deal with Samsung?

  1. This is why I will never buy Samsung. Their devices are just full of bloatware. Nexus or Google Play Edition is the only consideration for me on Android.

  2. phil – it says do you want to replace this app with the factory version. I tried disabling it but it tells me “If you disable a built in app this may cause problems with other apps”!!!

    It’s rubbish
