Not sure if this is the right place to post but every now and then I'll pull my Samsung Transform Ultra all the way to the left and see apps that I never downloaded and they keep showing up. Is this spam or malware on my phone? Its been happening ever since I got the phone I think.
I don't even have an Andriod phone yet (getting the Tab 2), but I guarantee you apps don't download themselves.
One of 3 options:
1)Your carrier is doing it
2)The apps are actually part of the phone, and during bootup it reinstalls the apps
What are the apps?
Who is your carrier?
The push advertising thing seems to be the culprit, I've added those apps to detect it but what's been downloaded are things like casino games, or company apps that direct me to their other games. They are all shortcuts.
