    Aptrax wants to help you identify superfluous applications on your device. Aptrax is a simple application that tracks the frequency and duration of your app usage. Their goal is to help you quickly and easily identify all of those apps that you have installed but do not use often enough to keep around. It straight up provides a list of your installed apps, sorted by most used at the top to least used at the bottom.

    With over 1 million apps in the Google Play Store, it is no wonder that many of us have hundreds of apps installed on our devices. This is not an issue in itself, but when your device runs out of storage, some difficult app removal decisions need to be made. Certainly, most of us can recall if we’ve used an installed app, but Aptrax makes it easy to identify any apps that may have slipped through the cracks, unnecessarily taking up storage space.

    Aptrax is a recent addition to the Google Play Store, produced by an indie developer that appears eager for your input and committed to the growth of the app. As the app is still maturing, a quick word of warning – apps that provide background services, such as Tasker or SMS Backup+, and widgets on your homescreen, such as the Play Music widget, do not register in Aptrax usage statistics. We hope to see this updated in a future release of the app.

    Start tracking your app usage with your own copy of Aptrax from the Google Play Store. You’ll have to give the app a bit of time to collect data about your usage for best results. How many apps do you think you’ll uninstall?

    Unfortunately, the apps that I would like to uninstall the most are part and parcel of the OS and therefore, uninstallable.
