“If you love Android so much why don’t you get an Android?” That is what I was asked last week in the comments of my video. I don’t love Android nor would I make the mistake of getting rid of my iPhone for an Android device. However, with that being said, there are some things about Android I find a bit more pleasing to the end user. That’s why this week I’ll take a look at another Android-style tweak, Android Delete.
Android Delete, not surprisingly, allows you to delete applications using the Android trashcan at the bottom of the screen. All you have to do is click and hold an icon until it starts wiggling, a little trash can will appear at the bottom of your screen, just like an Android device. From there, all you have to do is drag an application to the trash can to get rid of it, instead of pressing the little X at the top of the icon.Â The trash can will turn green when you have the icon over it so you know you’re not just moving the icon around. What’s more, a confirmation pop-up will appear in case you’ve made a mistake the applications removal.
The only issue I have had with this tweak is rearranging icons in the dock. Because the dock disappears to make way for the trashcan, it is kind of a guessing game where you’re actually placing the app or even which app you’ve selected. Other than that, though, I really enjoy and recommend this tweak.
I promise next week we will look at something that does not involve Android.
