    Several things. Don't play nice with my phone,aka performance or battery hog. Intrusive ads. Permissions to monitor things AND access to the internet for apps that have no reason to , such as flashlight apps or volume toggles. Ones that do not do what was promised.

    I keep my phone pretty basic, so if I don't use it a lot, I'll delete it.

    I look at all my apps in the drawer every couple months just to remind myself what I have. If I have to remind myself why one is there it's gone. Basic house cleaning.

    As others have said, overall usefulness of the app. If I don't need it, off it goes.

    I do this as well as rely on updates. Sometimes, seeing that an app that I never use has an update available will prompt me to uninstall it.

    I'd say that's the basic factor for me. Is it useful to me? Other than that, as others have said, if it's got annoying notifications, if it seems to slow the rest of the phone down or kill the battery...

    I am deleting the apps in two cases: when I do not use it for a long time and second - when after certain period it offers to update the version (need to pay for that). It is ok when it happens once or twice, but if it will offer that every time I am using it - sorry then))

    Too many ads and confusing process to use. For me, I once used Shareit and ApowerTrans, the former has those problems which annoyed me a lot. I sometimes felt upset using Shareit, so I uninstall it, while the latter app works nice and still on my phone, even though it is not that perfect.
