    Default The Case For Deleting All Your Apps

    The Case For Deleting All Your Apps

    You are a hoarder, and its a problem.
    You probably hide it well there are no rooms with old newspapers stacked to the ceilings, and no freezers full of dead cats but your phones home screen, which is quickly and eerily becoming one of the most telling expressions of ones true personality, gives you away. Its a mess, and so are you. I know because I was one too.
    But it doesnt have to be this way. In fact, theres an easy trick that can improve your smartphone enormously. Its easy to do and remarkably painless: delete your apps. All of them. Every last one that youre allowed to delete.
    This sounds crazier than it actually is, so hear me out.

    Interesting article.
    I didn't get into any social media site, so that part was not a problem for me. I habitually ignore many emails anyway. My phone goes off more for Android Central than anything else...lol

    I tend to factory reset from time to time so this helps me keep the clutter down. I find that there will be apps installed that haven't been opened in months. Most I download to try or see the app reviewed on the AC Blog. Either way, it's a good idea to get rid of apps that are no longer in use, and this is a good way to do it.

    No problem here.... I've always highly limited installed apps to only those I actually need/use (on all of my Android devices, even my PC's too!); about a dozen max, often less. OCD does have its advantages!
