If you’re anything like me you’ve plenty of apps on your iPad or iPhone that haven’t seen the light of day for ages. Every time an update arrives in iTunes for an app that hasn’t been used in forever I get this notion to do something, but then I digress.
The other day I looked at my iPhone apps in iTunes and realized there were more than a few apps that were unchecked; not even syncing to my iPhone.
Couple this with the apps on my iPhone that suffer from disuse and it all added up to some serious house-cleaning time. So for each app that I couldn’t recall the last time I used it, I deleted it completely off my MacBook Pro.
Now I don’t have to worry about all those apps sending me useless updates when they’re gone, baby gone. And worry not, Apple has a record of your app purchases so you can re-download them (under the guise of “Buying”) whenever you feel the need.
I guess at the very least I should have made a list of the apps I nuked. You know, just in case. (Deleter’s remorse?)
Nah. I’m good.
