Basically, Bloatware are the stock applications installed by the manufacturers, that are region specific or installed by different carriers like At&t, T-Mobile, Verizon and others in order to add an exclusive touch of their company to the carrier branded phones. These applications are called bloatware because they eat up a lot of memory, that may be consumed by something important on the smartphone, or that memory maybe availed by some data to be stored on the device. Bloatware applications can sometimes slower down the performance and speed of your Android smartphone.

NoBloat by TVK Development is a very nice application, that gives the users an option to delete the default / stock installed applications from any Android smartphone. The app requires root access, once granted, it allows the users to select and delete bloatware. The option that appears to be cool in this application is, it creates a backup of the pre-installed apps on your phone’s SDcard and then deletes it. Now this is quite helpful, sometimes if you delete some system apps, it may cause problems with the proper functionality of your device and you may get force close errors after specific intervals of time. In this case, restoring the application from backup can be proven of real help, otherwise if you don’t have the backup, you may have to flash a new stock firmware in your device. Another option in the application is simply disabling the bloatware applications, you may just refrain the applications from working instead of deleting the applications straight away. This can definitely free up a lot of storage occupied by unused data on your Android device and boost up your device’s performance. NoBloat’s free version comes with limited options, but there’s a paid version as well that enhances the functionality of the device at its best. Let’s move forward now.
