I keep getting asked by new Android users which apps I would recommend [All the apps currently on my phone can be seen on AppBrain] and for a while I’ve been meaning to make a post on the apps I use regularly. This isn’t it!
This is a post on the apps that I’ve just removed off my phone and why:
- Townsmen 6 FREE: Even though my phone has a fairly large screen I’m finding this fairly unplayable.
- Ocean Wave Live Wallpaper: Why is that even on there?
- Dandelion Live Wallpaper: Again, why?
- Aurora Live Wallpaper: And this one?
- Blue Sea Live Wallpaper: How many more are there?
- WordSearch Unlimited Free: Too easy.
- Droid Comic Viewer: My phone’s screen is too small to read anything properly, this app would be awesome on an Android based tablet though.
- Mini Info: Never used it.
- Bakery Story™: Annoying, pointless.
- Androidify: Used it for a minute once before getting bored of it.
- SoundHound: Don’t like the site/service.
- LiveProfile: This is a major one, it seriously slowed my phone down and kept crashing in the background even if I didn’t start it.
- Words With Friends Free: Another major removal, it was slow, buggy and pretty much unplayable. It’s a shame as I’d have loved to play scrabble against my friends with iDevices.
- Airport Mania FREE: Bought the full version!
- Grooveshark: Too slow to start up! If I hear a song and want it to spend way over a minute to load!
- Phone 2 Chrome: Should have read the description, I’m not comfortable sharing my Dropbox password.
- Turbo Grannies FREE: Didn’t like the gameplay.
- Duck Hunter: Didn’t like the gameplay.
I have now cut down from 102 to 88 apps which is a start!
