Everyone loves trying out the newest apps on their smart phones. I know that I have been bored at times and just downloaded anything that looked fun. And when it ended up being the worst app ever, instead of deleting the apps, I would just shut my phone off. After a while, there were apps on my phone that I didn’t need, but also never used. There are handful of apps that I should never have downloaded. Sometimes, there are just some apps that you should delete IMMEDIATELY, because it’s slowing down your phone!
I have always contemplated why I HAD to delete certain apps off of my iPhone. Sometimes it was slowing it down. Sometimes I just didn’t want it on my phone anymore. Well, Yahoo came up with a few other good ideas for why you HAVE to just get rid of certain apps:
Why Delete Apps?
- Apps take up space on your phone, which may not seem like a big deal if you have a ton of storage, but they can add up and may even put a drain on your phone’s speed.
- Hanging onto apps you don’t use make your phone disorganized, and it will be harder to find the app you’re looking for.
- If you’re not using an app because it crashes or is buggy, by all means get rid of it. Poorly written apps can suck system resources and bog down your phone.
- If you’re not using a particular app, why give it all those permissions to access your data?
Plus, deleting an app off your phone doesn’t mean you’d have to buy it again if you change your mind. iTunes and the Google Play store remember what you’ve purchased and won’t charge you to reinstall.
Here is a list of a few apps that should, NEVER be downloaded. And if you have, you should get it off your phone as soon as possible. It’s weighing down your system!
