    There are lots of threads on several forums that talk about removal/renaming (this is not the thread to flame about why you should or should not remove) of bloat and i have done some that seemed obvious. However i have seen some people who have removed 1/2 the stuff on the phone. Yes i understand it's because you can however what i can not find is what these apps actually do. Yes there are a few babbles this is kindle and this is vz navigator and don't touch this if you use voice commands. Has anyone put together a comprehensive list of what each app does ?? for example i renames Conversations.apk to conversations.bak I know i disabled it and my phone still works (better than before i renamed everything) but i still don't know what conversations.apk did? I renamed filemanager until i found it was the only way i had to my SD card. Yes it's easy to just rename back to .apk but i would like to know in advance what i'm changing. Below are just a few i'm curious about.

    Zoomservice.apk
    Protips.apk
    Blurrupdater.apk
    Blurmessagagingengine.apk
    Blurremail.apk
    Blurremailengine.apk
    Arcvideoeditorlite.apk
    Audioeffectsettings.apk
    Screenreader.apk
    Visualization.apk
    Visualizationswallpaper.apk

    Thanks in advance and i'm sorry if this is out there and i just can not find it.

    Blurmessagagingengine.apk <== SMS engine
    Blurremail.apk <== email client, integrates in the 'universal inbox'
    Blurremailengine.apk <== needed for above
    Arcvideoeditorlite.apk <== i honestly don't know much about it
    Audioeffectsettings.apk <== configure options in sound settings->media audio effects -> wired sterio devices
    Screenreader.apk <== Can Delete, accessability thing
    Visualization.apk <== Replaces cover art in music player with visualization
    Visualizationswallpaper.apk <== live wallpaper that uses the above apk

    Thanks again, I have read lots of threads and learned a little here and there but i'm not brave enough to just change. First attempt at "renaming out side the box" was when handsent went down. I thought it was me and i renamed everything back to .APK and it still did not work. Yes later i found out it was handsent however now i;m scarred for life :) not really just very cautious.
