Google deletes two Android applications remotely.

Google removed two free applications from Android phones this week, using a feature that allows them to delete the applications from phones remotely.

Google has not revealed the names of the applications but said they were applications built for research purposes by a security researcher. The researcher voluntarily removed the applications from Android Market.

The applications were removed because they violated the Android Market terms and intentionally misrepresented their purpose to encourage user downloads. The applications posed no threat, there was no malicious intent in their design, and they had no permission to access private information.
