One of the first reasons a user decides to Root their phone, is to remove all that horrible bloatware, bad apps that their carrier has stuck them with on their phone.  Whether you are an HTC Incredible user trying to get rid of Amazon app, or one of the many Android Devices stuck with Bing Search, it is easy to get rid of all the Apps and bloatware you don’t want!

The best and easiest option for a newly rooted Android user to easily remove their bloatware from their phone, is the free and amazing Titanium Backup App   Once you have downloaded the app, follow these simple instructions.
