And the spring cleaning continues! After getting rid of quite a few apps from my Galaxy Tab 10.1 last week, I’ve decided it’s time my phone gets the same treatment. If you want to check out last week’s post, you can catch it here.

Analog Clock Collection: I’m a sucker for good analog watches, and their round form factor (I’m even working on a concept design for a round smartwatch). Yet the geek in me still wants these watches to do more than just show the time. A widget that takes 2X2 of my homescreen without showing me any additional information? No thanks.

Heaven & Hell: This game was featured last week in the Market, and had a pretty neat rating (currently stands at 4.3 stars from nearly 9000 reviews). However, I never really enjoyed it. The developer clearly put in effort on the design side, but I found the gameplay too easy for quite a few levels. Maybe it gets better later, but I’m not really looking forward waiting for it.

Iris and Evi: Both want to be the “Siri for Android”, yet neither offers sufficient capability to be used regularly. I hope they improve soon. Once they have a “hands-free” mode allowing me to text, E-Mail or place calls without pressing a button (or maybe one, if it’s really required) I’ll rush to reinstall.

I have no idea why I installed these in the first place:

Dream Journal, Memory Trainer, Photo Grid, Presenter
