    You are a hoarder, and itís a problem.
    You probably hide it well ó there are no rooms with old newspapers stacked to the ceilings, and no freezers full of dead cats ó but your phoneís home screen, which is quickly and eerily becoming one of the most telling expressions of oneís true personality, gives you away. Itís a mess, and so are you. I know because I was one too.
    But it doesnít have to be this way. In fact, thereís an easy trick that can improve your smartphone enormously. Itís easy to do and remarkably painless: delete your apps. All of them. Every last one that youíre 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!
