Which Apps to Freeze???

    So I finally rooted my Verizon S4 last night with little effort. These developers are amazing!!!
    I really have NO desire to flash ROMS as I don't mind verizon's stock. What I DO mind is all the bloatware that's running. I'm asking for insight as to which apps I can freeze. When I had my moto droid-3 there were lists floating around of common apps people froze to save cpu use. Anyone compiling such a list or have your top-5 for me?

    Here's a couple of lists I found on the interwebs last night. Take them for what they're worth (It's got to be true if it's on the internet, right) and, as usual, don't hold yours truly responsible if something messes up (I am but a lowly messenger!).

    If you're not sure about a particular app, freeze or disable it first and see if that adversely affects anything else. If all is well after a few weeks, then it may be safe to get rid of it. A good rule of thumb from what I've been reading is to avoid anything with a little Android guy next to the title, apps that have names that you don't understand, apps on the list that are ones you want to keep anyway (YouTube, Chrome, Dropbox, etc.) or apps that are from someone else besides Google, Android or Verizon (besides some of the obvious ones like Verizon Tones or Mobile Security). As always, do your research and look for more opinions on this subject before your purge!
