Android devices usually come with some pre-installed apps for the user. While we need certain apps like Calculator, Gallery, Contacts, etc, there are others that we have no use for. These third type of apps that we don’t use or need are called bloatware. Stocks apps are also considered bloatware for most users unless they are invested in the stock market. However, a very small percentage of people with android devices actually use the pre-installed stocks apps. So in this post, i will tell you about how can you remove stock apps from Android without rooting it.
