Just a question, after installing and removing games, apps etc, a thought came to me.
How tidy is Android? I mean with Windows 7, after installing and removing app etc you are left with rubbish on the system. What does Android do? Does uninstalling an app remove all the bits of the program? Do I have to invest in a program to tidy up? Does such a program exist?
Personally before I uninstall an app I always force close it (if still running) clear cache and clear data. I have seen some early App2SD app implementations that left files behind on the memory card when installed there (giving errors if reinstalled to the card), so now I tend to move the app to the phone first before uninstalling.
Monkey see, monkey do.
