    What apps should I disable in my TF101

    Im looking to improve the performance of my tablet and have read that disbling the "bloatware" is one way of acheiving this.

    What app do you recomend disabling?

    Not all apps seem to have a disble function. Why is this?

    Thanks

    What aspect of performance are you hoping to improve?

    Disabling an app will prevent it from being preloaded in memory, which may result in caching of other apps that you are more likely to use. But I don't see any benefit beyond that. Just because an app is in the task list doesn't mean it's consuming any resources other than memory that is not currently needed by active apps.

    Thanks, I just read up on how android uses the RAM and that its management is different to that of Windows (which is that platform im most used to). If figured that not having it loaded in the background would result in more RAM being available for memory and cpu intensive games. Ive now realised that android will clear that ram as and when its needed anyway.
    I guess the only benifit would me a tiny amount of cpu usage reduction in caching apps I dont ever intend to use. While no consumpion occures once its in memory, there will be some cpu usage in getting it there in the first place.
    Disabling them would also result in fewer app updates as well though I guess.
    I dont want to uninstall all the ASUS apps and certain android ones incase there is a knock on effect I am unaware of. Will keep doing my research any way. I just like streamlining.

    While it may not do much, I did disable some of the built in's as I'm never going to use them anyway.
