    Anyone have any idea about the process by which apps are approved to be pre-installed on phones? Is that a carrier decision? a Google decision? A hardware manufacturer decision?

    Any details around the process would be really helpful. Thanks!

    Carrier and Manufacturer negotiation. Thus, iPhone has no bloatware, Moto has much.
