    Hi,

    I had an app on my iPad and deleted it. Held the icon, clicked the cross. A few weeks later, I changed my mind and reinstalled it. Every setting was preserved. That's kinda worrying.

    So how do you completely delete an app, settings and all?

    My iPad isn't Jailbroken. It was an app from the app store.

    Well when itunes backs up your ipad it backs up all the apps data as well. Have you performed a restore? if so it will put back all the app data even if the app isnt installed any more.

    Not intentionally. How do I stop this from happening if I want to delete the app again?

    Just delete the app and it should remove everything and all of its settings.
    Then sync the ipad to perform create a new backup file on your PC.

    I have had the same experience, and now I understand why.

    Thanks, MT.

    I deleted the app previously on the iPad and sync'd it with my PC for a few weeks prior to reinstalling the app and finding all my settings intact.....
