    [SUB]i just got a galaxy S3 yesterday. so far i really like it but i am having a little problem. i downloaded about 1-12 apps that i put on all of my phones. and for some reason icons for apps keep popping up on my home screen. when i click them they are just short cuts that take me to the app in the play store. so far i have had about 12-13 pop up. i tried researching the problem but never found anything specific. i have had these same apps installed on 4-5 phones so far and never had any do this before. i have read of people talking about an app to help detect apps that push spam like that but have not seen anyone mention a name. i do not really want to have to delete the apps then reinstall them because of my limited data i have. does anyone know of anything i could try or what the name of the spam detection app is? any help would be greatly appreciated.
