import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.net.Uri;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.View.OnClickListener;
import android.widget.Button;

public class UninstallAppActivity extends Activity {
 public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
  Button btn = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button1);
  btn.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {

   public void onClick(View v) {
