Who can keep track of technology? It feels like just a month ago we were all talking on cellphones the size of our heads. Suddenly the rise of the smartphone means that every aspect of our lives from the music we listen to, to the way we communicate with our friends and family has been mediated by technology.

Android is a great platform with millions of apps available through a series of app marketplaces, each competing either for your cash, or for your viewing of their ads. Some apps are useful and unique, others are just attempts of their developers to do things better than their competitors (at which they sometimes fail miserably). There are a few apps that most people install on their phones and tablets, many of them provided by major names in the market, that are simply unnecessary – so you can easily make do without them (especially if you have one of those “affordable” devices with a limited storage space) and still use the service they are associated with. Here is a selection of a few such “unneeded” apps, getting rid of which can save you a lot of space.
So, your new website is live and ready to go. The design looks great, the content sparkles, and all those exciting features make yours one of the best new websites to hit the net. You’ve found a reliable and suitable web host so it can keep up with the amount of traffic it’ll start getting!

Sure, you could just go live and hope for the best, but sadly, the Hollywood sentiment that ‘if you build it, they will come,’ doesn’t really ring true when it comes to the web.

There are thousands of Android apps for just about every purpose, whether you want something to help with your fitness regime, to help you find travel options
