    some times there are some bugs that causes the unwanted behavior of app and related events of that app.
    in your case there is programing problem that let the widget of that and some file related to that app remain your phone also after uninstalling app.
    so you have to first manually remove that widget from home screen by tap and hold the widget and move it to trash.
    now you have to find the files and remove it from memory card.
    now follow steps to look that your app is uninstall or not by as follows.
    1)go to settings
    2)open apps.
    3)now tap on all tab.
    4)look for the app.
    5)if app is present then tap on it
    6)now tap on button clear data then tap on clear cache.
    7)now tap on Uninstall button.

    in this way the app will remove successfully

    Hi friend,
    I think your system has corrupted by virus.In this case first of all you will format your system.Then you will write avast antivirus free download on the Google page.After that you will see many pages and links.Then you will click on the page.Then you will see the download button and click on it.Next you will install in your Motorola XOOM tablet or otherwise you will download from avast site i.e. avast.com.Then you will download any apps through internet.

    The thing might be that you might not have uninstalled the application properly from your xoom tablet. You better make sure that you uninstall the application properly. For that you need to follow these steps>1. Firstly launch the settings application in the main menu of your phone. >2. Now after that goto the all applications option in it. >3. There you can see the application and tap on the application which you want to uninstall and then uninstall it. Now check if the application is still on the homescreen. If its still there then your phone is effected with virus. You better install antivirus and scan all the documents. Hope this helps.

    Hi friend,
    You uninstalled the app and the icon still appears on the mobile..It is very simple to remove the icon of the uninstalled app..
    -->Press and hold the uninstalled app icon until the screen starts wiggling..
    -->Now a red 'x' mark will appear on the top of app..
    -->Tap on that 'x' mark to remove the icon

    Thank you!!!

    Don't worry. What you are seeing is just the short cut of that particular application which is uninstalled. You can delete it very easily using some simple steps I'm mentioning below. So, go through them.
    1. First thing you have to do is, turn on your device to view the Home Screen.
    2. Secondary is, find that icon and do long press on it until a trash/dustbin appeared on the screen at the bottom.
    3. Then, you drag that icon into that trash/dustbin appeared before. Then, the short icon will also be deleted from your Home Screen. That's it.
