Deleting pre-installed apps from Android
Posted on 2012-04-01
I have an HTC Wildfire S running Android 2.3.5
Increasingly often I get low memory warnings and have to go through deciding which apps to remove. I have had to delete downloaded apps which I'd like to have for occasional use but need to remove to ensure space for the core apps I use all the time.
Everytime I do this I curse at those apps which came pre-installed with the phone but which I never use on the phone and which consume vast amounts of memory which I'd very much like to rededicate to apps I'd find more useful in the context of a phone.
Specifically I'd like to remove:
Facebook for HTC Sense
Friend Stream Widget
I can only remove the updates to these apps, not the apps themselves. If I don't keep them updated I don't get the security updates etc, and get constant reminders that updates exist.
