A is for Apps

More than likely you have apps on your phone and tablet that you don't use.

Rather than continue to amass digital clutter, why not prune?

Well, evaluate and then delete.

1. If you open an app and you realize you never created a login, it's probably a safe bet that you can get rid of that one.

2. Similarly, if you open an app and can't recall what it does, or why you downloaded it, then delete it. If you ever need it, it's in the cloud waiting for you.

3. Consider how you use the app. I don't keep any ride sharing or airline apps on my iPad. I keep those travel apps on my phone for quicker and easier access.

You don't need every app on every device, so identify which apps you could delete on one device.

4. If you've downloaded numerous free games, evaluate which games you really play. That freebie app of the week may have been fun for a bit, but if you're not playing the game anymore, get rid of it.

5. Of course, if you have goals to reduce the amount of time you spend on games or social media, then think about getting rid of those apps on one or more devices. If you make it just a little harder to play Plants vs. Zombies or check that Facebook or Pinterest feed, you may find time to support the positive goals for your life.

6. Finally, for those apps that you use seasonally or every once in a while, place them together in a themed folder. Place that folder on the second swipe screen so they are out of sight until you need them.


This app cleanup should only take a few minutes. Sure, you may feel a little guilty about deleting some apps. On my Apple devices, I hate how the icon shakes in fear as my fat finger presses the X, but the guilt passes quickly when I see how streamlined my screen is.
