Applications preinstalled on a memory card are automatically installed when inserting the memory card, without the need for user interaction.

After the installation, the user has the option to remove the application from the Application Manager. When removed, the automated installation process no longer takes place the next time when the same memory card is removed and re-inserted.


The preinstalled application remains visible in the Application Manager also after the removal, allowing a manual reinstallation.
