Motorola Razr Maxx HD
My phone came equiped with numerous applications one of which is an app titled "Places" I conducted a search of a number of businesses and those search lists still appear when I access the "Places" app and depress the magnifying glass search icon. I want to remove or clear all of the locations listed but can find no way to do so.
Steps I have taken so far:
If someone responds, hope I can find the response since this if first time I have used this forum.
I believe the "Places" is tied to the Google Maps application. Try clearing the search for the Maps app.
I believe clearing hte Google Maps search history will solve your porblem. Reading your entire post it appears you have not tried this yet.
Google Maps stores items you’ve searched for to make it easy to search for them again later. You can clear your search history in the Settings application.
WARNING: Clear data is not a reversible action.
That is surprising. It worked for me. Perhaps we do not understand you actual issue. For startes my Razr Maxx is not the HD version, but it did not come with an app called "Places". The Google Play app store, does have an called "Places" but it is made by a company called Dicy and looks suspicious. I would not install it, and doubt it was preinstalled by Verizon.
So I am assuming the "Places" app you are referring to is the list of searched for locations in the Google Maps app.
But if you do indeed have an app called "places" you might wan to try the instructions above, but instead of Clearing the Data on the Maps app, clear it for the Places app. If you see "Places" listed under Settings > Applications > Manage applications > All Tab, slecet it and hten hit the Clear data button.
Therein lies the problem. The "Places" app is not listed under "Manage
Apps" which I have found to be very strange. "Manage Apps" does list other
apps such as "Sticky Note" that I don't see when I depress the regular
apps button. So...the app I want to manage is not listed.
