Default What Can I Remove? - 03-29-2011, 07:30 AM

I feel that you could remove any of those, without a problem.

Probably any app. that is showing up on the screen as a "Product" type app (can't think of a better description) could be removed safely.

Any that are showing up in settings under applications that do not appear on the screen (if any) I would leave.

I doubt I would remove Google ones, but then again, they, and all the others are ready available and replaceable.

Can't imagine why you would want to remove them though!

But before you do any removal, you could perhaps back them up with that "back up feature" in settings. I presume the back up stays put, even if the real apps are lost or malfunction?????

And before you do anything, hopefully someone who is technically inclined should make some suggestions.

I want them gone because all they are is clutter I will never use. I'm not worried about space as much as just having to see them

I have a feeling that there are some apps, that would enable you to organise the Gallery into sections.

Have a look in the Market under the search word "Gallery" to see if this is so.

I was interested in doing this and did have a look a while ago.

If this was the case, you could move all of those into "Miscellaneous" or whatever compartment you liked.

I know Iphone has such an app. as I have seen it on an Iphone.

I am not too sure what extra desktops mean, are they home screens? The Streak has up to about 4 extensions of home screen, - perhaps other lesser android phones don't.

I have deleted quite a few. I found a free self titled app folder that allowed me to organize apps and utilities to my liking. Im happy now now I need to transfer a kick ass media selection to the sd and get the nerve to swap out the internal sd for this 16gig I have sitting here
