    Maybe someone can help me here. I just got a Verizon Galaxy S4, and I've deleted about a metric crapload of apps. But there are some left I have questions about. They're listed below. Any one with a * means I've seen it on other lists saying it's safe to remove, but I'm concerned it might affect the functionality of one thing or another. The ones marked [V] have a characteristic Verizon icon. If anyone can shed any light on any of these apps and why they are or are not okay to delete, I would very much appreciate it.

    You can delete these off the top of my head: drive, collage, Google calendar sync, Google contacts sync, Google partner setup, Google play games, Google search widget, Google+, hangouts, photo screensavers, S note provider, Samsung keyboard, Samsung updates, share music, share video, as well as all the print services, the exercise app, NFL, and pretty much anything that sounds as if it isn't absolutely essential for your device's operation. In Rom Toolbox, you can also freeze page buddy notification to stop that irritating notification bar with recommended apps when you plug in an AUX cord.

    Hey I have a Verizon s4 and I deleted a bunch of bloatware and now can't update ota... Is there any way I can retrieve these bloatware apps in a zip file or something? I deleted Samsung hub before and It disabled auto rotate but I was able to download a zip and change the permissions to put it back in my library. Also Which bloatware apps are essential for updating?

    I've got a google spreadsheet with a list of android apps with as much info as I can find. References to safe to freeze/remove, where I believe it came from, links to more info if available etc.: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XXWF4PJsKfc2-n6uSuCmsxHIqiTyMdZpAsuTtmdCR6o

    If you want to help update/curate the list send me a message with your google E-mail and I'll give you edit privileges (E-mail address is at the top of the sheet)
