    Are there any apps that are not safe to uninstall or disable? I have something in the Android OS that's eating my battery up, it's consuming more than the screen use. Foxfi is the only app that's been installed in the last couple of months but have unistalled it yesterday with no change. So, I feel I should remove or disable everything possible. I'm only getting about 13 hours of use on a Maxx. Any other ideas?

    Thanks for the reply. What is the difference between disabling and freezing an app? My Razr only allows uninstall or disable, I haven't seen the ability to freeze. Perhaps there is no difference?
    Thanks again for your help.

    There is no difference except that titanium refers to it as freezing and ICS app manager refers to it as disabling. If you are rooted and freeze an app in titanium backup, that app will show up as disabled in app manager and vice versa (if you disable an app in app manager, it shows up as frozen in TiBU. It is much safer to freeze or disable a bloat/stock app because if you find you need it to upgrade, it only involves unfreezing.
