    I was looking at my apps the other day looking for things to get rid of and found several apps, all called Mobile and having various different MB values. What is this and is it something that can safely be removed?

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Were they only in the Settings>Apps menu, or were they in the App Drawer? If they're only in the Settings>Apps menu, and there's no Uninstall button, then they're preinstalled system apps, and you shouldn't mess around with them.

    They ARE uninstallable and it is a Moto X Pure Edition. I can't determine if they are connected to anything or if it's malware of some type. I have actually uninstalled a few of them with no deleterious effects (that I know of).

    Are you on Bell in Canada? If so, it's probably this: Mobile 1.0

    No, I'm in the USA, in the South. I'm about as far from Canada as you can get. I am now getting rid of them... Seems sketchy to me.

    But is that the app? Is the icon the same? Did you get your phone brand new from your carrier, or used/refurbished from a private seller or reseller?

    No, the icon is just a very generic android symbol. It was brand new direct from Motorola, so no bloatware.

    Hmm, not sure what they might have been. I wish there was a way to look at an app's info to figure out who the developer is, but once the app is installed, I don't think that shows up anywhere.
