Bloat Manager For Android

Bloat Manager For Android

So you’ve bought your shiny new Droid 2 Global but don’t want all the extra bloatware on your device. This was exactly the thought of XDA forum member Nalthos, who decided to familiarise himself with the Android platform.

The application presents a lit of bloat where you can check the item as enabled or not. You can also save what you have disabled as a profile. Disabling an application using Bloat Manager simply renames it to .bak. Re-enabling it, renames back to .apk.

Currently, the list of recognised bloat is a fixed list based on what other people have had success with removing, although the dev could add more apps to the list.

For a full list of bloat, and to download the application, head on over to application thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
