    Default Delete 'Photos' app?

    I really have no idea when or how I got this app, but it is the gallery's autistic brother and I want it gone.

    I believe that Photo app comes from the Google+ app.

    I'm going to switch to an iPhone 5S if Google keeps doing this.

    Is one app really going to make you switch to a different OS?

    No, it's Google forcing their crap on us.

    Well yes possibly, but remember, Android is owned by Google, so it is likely that the owner might put some add-ons.

    I don't remember Apple adding unnessacary features, to be honest it is my OCD that bothers me way to much.

    It will eventually replace the gallery app. It has additional features that include auto uploading/backup of photos, which you do not have to use but some may wish to. Apple does this as well, but they usually either replace an app at the same time or stick with the same app name and just update the app. I think the problem is Google is pushing these out a little early before they are developed enough to actually replace the apps they are intended to eventually replace. Hangouts is another example. I don't currently use the app either, but I can see the benefits.
