my android apps

i continously seek smaller app/vers, and switchover. in doing so, i have about 250 apps installed on my small phone. you may notice that i have no qualmns using very old versions, if they are small enough. most official apps start out efficient, and end up bloatware. i also purge most of the pre-installed crapware apps (google play, google maps, gmail, google talk, email, clock), replacing them with smaller/efficient apps.

always choose open source apps over closed source. you never know what may be hidden in the source code. i always uninstall any market-installed apps, if i can find them in f-droid repo.

apps listed below are in order of preference. i will try to keep this page updated..
