  • The links to delete an application and delete a submission are both on the Application Lifecycle page.

    Either link will only appear if the application/submission are in a state in which they can be deleted.

    As Dennis mentioned, an Application can only be deleted if all of its submissions have been deleted.

    A submission can only be deleted if it has yet to be published (either it is being edited, it failed certification, or it is set to manually publish and has not yet been published).

    Once a submission has been published, neither the submission nor the application can be deleted.

    One exception to that rule is for Beta applications. If a Beta application is expired, it can be deleted.

  • is your app published? if it is not, you should be able to delete it. but first you should delete the submission. after you delete the submission, you will see the delete button for deleting app.

  • Drazd,

    Is your app published on the market or not yet? Check this thread: Delete an unsubmitted app

  • Can I delete an app I have unpublished? These apps just clutter my page, and I don't need them anymore as I have already published new and rebranded versions.

  • WTN RancoR,

    If it was published once, I doubt it can be deleted.
