Is anyone else app crazy like me? Loves to try out new apps and find new apps ?

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

My question is mainly do you like trying a lot of new apps but then uninstall them ?

I do, to an extent, i wish there was a way to totally delete them from my account so they do not come back & haunt you when you upgrade your phone. do it wrong & suddenly you have a huge bunch of apps that you thought you'd gotten rid of. Now you have to delete them all over again.

Trying them for the sake of trying? No, no reason to. I will only try an app if I am looking for something that I need it to do.

Yeah that is true. Though this is what I was talking about though!

Not really unless it is a free app and it interests you. Sometimes you find a app that you didn't realize you need.

No. I only have 36 Apps, some of which are Apples that I don't use and can't uninstall.

I only keep apps that have a purpose for me and that I use at least semi-regularly. I usually have between 30-40.

I'm always trying to find new apps, but it seems all there are anymore are photo filters, to-do lists and kardashian apps

I use as few apps as possible. Dislike introducing a bunch of crap into my phone. I kinda depend on it working well.
How does installing some apps or trying some and uninstalling perhaps make the phone less reliable for other things?

I like to try loads of new apps. I have organised folders, so I have no worries about clutter.

I will probs calm down soon though, the main reason I've tried out loads of new apps is because I was on iOS 6 before, and next to nothing would install on that!
