Weather applications, optimizers, a default browser. it’s best to get rid of this.
Facebook and other social networks
The social network Facebook is today the most popular in the world, so it is not surprising that a huge number of users have installed the corresponding mobile application. The mobile client allows you to receive notifications of new likes, post pictures of your food and always stay in touch with friends. However, in return, this application consumes a huge amount of system resources and significantly reduces the battery life of the mobile gadget. According to the annual report App Report 2015 AVG Android App Report, it is the mobile client Facebook that occupies the top lines in the hit parade of the most gluttonous programs on the Android platform.
Alternative. Use the mobile version of Facebook in any modern browser. Functionality is not much different, but there are no annoying notifications and a rapidly melting battery.
The Weather Channel and other weather applications
The Weather Channel is a great example of how, on the simplest function. displaying a weather forecast. developers manage to build a whole mega-combine. Here you will see animated wallpapers, weather maps, a bunch of interactive widgets, and God knows what else. All this economy sits in the RAM of the device, knocks on the Internet every five minutes and, of course, eats up the charge of your battery in the most shameless way.
Alternative. Look out the window. you will get much more reliable information than what the desktop widget shows. If you need a forecast, then Google will provide you with the most reliable prediction for a week in advance.
AntiVirus FREE and other antivirus programs
Alternative. If you still have doubts about the health of the gadget, then install the antivirus, scan it, and then delete it.
Clean Master and other system optimizers
Belief in miracles is the main driving force for the spread of various “cleaners” and “optimizers”. Like, hundreds of the best Google programmers could not bring their system to mind, but this lone inventor took it and did it! We’re in a hurry to upset you: most of these applications either do nothing at all, or only do harm. You can clear the cache and remove the remnants of old programs with the integrated system tools. Clearing the memory actually only slows down the launch of programs and the work of Android instead of the system acceleration promised by the creators of the utilities.
Alternative. Use the tools available in Android to clear the application cache. Forget about memory optimization.
Some manufacturers and developers of third-party firmware supply their creations with special versions of the browser. As a rule, they are tightly sewn into links to advertisers’ sites and other unnecessary content. In addition, no one can guarantee that such a browser does not merge your information to the left. It is better to never use such a program and generally, if possible, remove it from the system.
Alternative. There are dozens of good browsers for Android, but the most reliable and fastest is undoubtedly Google Chrome. It is functional, has support for the latest web technologies, can save mobile traffic and has a simple and intuitive interface.
And which applications do you consider the most harmful on the Android platform?
