    Whenever I download an app on my Samsung Galaxy S3, it always puts a shortcut for it on one of my home screens.
    Is there any way I can stop this from happening?
    Many thanks.

    - Open the Android Market
    - Press the menu button
    - Open the settings of the Android Market
    - Uncheck the "Auto-add shortcuts" box

    Didn't know you could turn that off. Good to know.
