then get the normal uninstall dialogue/password.
Maybe a small bin in the dash somewhere labelled 'uninstall'? Or a
button by the filters menu that switches to 'uninstall mode' that makes
a small cross/minus appear at the top right of an icon (a la Samsung

way, so maybe this wouldn't be the best option.
