Auto Bloat Remover Tool Released for Xperia Mini, Mini Pro, and Active

Bloatware sucks. It takes up space and is usually comprised of applications that no one wants. Even worse, in some cases, it even runs in the background constantly and causes diminished battery life and performance.

While some carriers and OEMs have recently begun curbing this nasty habit, many older devices will never get this improved treatment. That’s one of the many reasons why users root their phones. However, many users aren’t always sure which applications are safe to remove. This why there’s automatic bloat remover tools.

XDA Senior Member Knight47 has released such a tool for the Xperia Mini, Mini Pro and Active that browses through your system and removes every piece of junk that’s safe to get rid of. The tool is very simple to use and could even be classified as a one-click solution. Users simply need to download the tool and run it from their computer, while the phone is plugged in and USB debugging is enabled. After that, the tool does the rest. Additionally, if there are any apk files you need to side-load, the application allows you to batch install them.

Continue on to the application thread to get started.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

Swappa’s New App Helps You Value Your Device

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets.
