Want To Delete that annoying Android Market Search history?


It really bugs me sometimes knowing that I can’t clear the search history in the Android Market. Well luckily I came across this free app called “HistoryEraser” by DUMAPIC (who is also the Dev of OperaBridge) which does just that – deletes the Android market history – and without the need for root.


Usually – as far as I could tell – you couldn’t delete the history of the market without factory resetting your phone so this is real handy. I’m not sure if this works for any version of Android above 1.6 but leave a comment confirming and tell us so we can update the article!

If you’re on Android 1.5 (Cupcake) you have to download “MarketHistoryEraser”

Appbrain Link ~ Or you can scan the QR code below

If you’re on 1.6 (Donut) Download “HistoryEraser”

AppBrain Link -> or scan the QR code below

P.S This app can also easily delete your call log, contacts (not recommended!), default browser history, google map search history and search shortcuts.

Enjoy & Thank you Dev DUMAPIC!

    – market history cleaner;

    – task killer;
    – start up manager (bootable apps are highlighted);
    Also browser history cleaner.

  38. @ g1andonly: “Couldn’t you just go to manage apps from settings and clear market cache?”.

    Sir, I salute you! Why download this app when you can just do this through settings? Surprised someone didn’t stumble onto this solution earlier.

  39. “HistoryEraser” worked perfectly on my X10 Mini Pro, android version 2.1.

    Thanks very much :D

    And no, my history would not delete through settings and clearing Android Market’s cache.

  40. On the HTC 4G EVO, the google magnifying glass in the bottom right-hand corner, anybody know who to delete that history when googled that way instead of the internet?

  41. Works great(:

    If you cany find it in the market, I bet fourshared has it. Look up’history eraser.apk” (:
