Despite their growing importance, some of them quickly get consumed by the many unnecessary apps we install on the phones, taking up the entire storage and, in the long run, affecting the performance as well as battery life of these gadgets. It is time to say goodbye to these apps that do nothing but tire your phone getting rid of them. The question is which apps are these? Here is our answer to this question.
Facebook app is available free and, in fact; it comes preinstalled on some Android devices. It is the app uses to keep in touch with friends on Facebook using your mobile phone. In case you didn’t know, this app is one of the major battery hogs on your phone, in addition to being too intrusive.

Weather Apps or Widgets

The best way of staying safe from malware and other virus attacks is with the use of a strong antivirus program. However, it seems this is not essential on Android devices because as it turns out, these programs provide almost the same level of security as what you get when you carefully or rather sensibly use your Android device.
Android protects your device by default and it also provides encryption protocols for your phone. In fact, it is easy to get your device stolen then it is to get it compromised internally. Also, Google’s engineers are always on the lookout for any potentially harmful apps that are uploaded to the Play Store, which means it is still safe. What you need to do is take care of where you get apps from as well as the sites you visit. When you are positive about this, remove the installed antivirus program so as to free up your phone’s resources.
Cleaning apps such as Clean Master
While cleaning apps such as Clean Master come with the promise of actually cleaning your device to boost its performance, sometimes it is unnecessary to download these apps. What they do is get rid of cached data from deleted apps, something that can also be done using the Android phone’s settings.
