International HOX Bloatware
This is a list of apps I Disabled in my HTC One X (HOX). I've seen no ill effects of doing this, and of course I can always re-enable them If something comes up.
This list specific to International Tegra 3 version. Maybe someone will post a list for the AT&T version.
Why I selected these particular apps to Disable:
- Some I disabled because they are lame services only available in Singapore or some place like that, or are pay services for which I have no intention of paying.
- Some I disabled because they are paid apps that duplicate of Google apps.
- Some are entry level apps for which I already have the paid or pro version
- Some are social media apps which I refuse to join
- Some are battery or memory hogs
- Some are ones I have a better App for from the market
- Some are just ones don't want YMMV
Disabling these means:
- I don't have to find them running in memory after each reboot,
- I don't have to see update notices for them,
- They don't clutter up my app drawer,
- They don't clutter up my Share target list
Unless or until I root, I can't get rid of them, but disabling is the next best thing.
Rooting and physically deleting these just makes it harder to get OTA updates if past
experience is any guide. So for now I disable them.
ICEBIKE's list of HOX apps to disable:-----------------------------
Facebook for HTC Sense
Friend Stream (yup there are two of them)
Friend Stream Widget
Games for Smart
Jetcet Print (this actually works but I don't like it)
Jetcet Print Resources
Mail <--- there is nothing wrong with this app. I use K-9 Mail instead.
Movies for Smart
Music <---Changed my mind. See Post #4 below.
Music for Smart
News and Weather (battery hog)
Notes (yup another) Replaced all these "Notes" with Evernotes app.
Notes Painter these are just a lame interface to Evernotes
Twitter for HTC Sense
A few others that Might Join the list soon----------------
Stocks (yes, two of them) Better solutions in the market
HTCDB-xxxxxx (various language packs - these cause no harm as best I can tell).
If You find any on my list that you think I'm missing the boat on by disabling, feel free to weight in.
(I refuse to join facebook or google+ so don't waste your time. Obviously if those are important to you, you won't be disabling them).
What say ye?
