Asus Nexus 7 – How to disable unwanted apps

I like my Nexus 7 very much and I use it for mails, internet browsing, playing music on my Sonos devices, editing blogs, browsing Twitter etc.

From time to time I experience some lag in the UI and in some Apps. It is not much but enough to be noticed by me.

I discovered that some apps on Nexus 7 – I don’t use – they use memory and CPU time and properly cause the lag I noticed.

So how do you disable unwanted apps on Nexus 7 – it is simple:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Select Apps.
  3. Select ALL tab.
  4. Select the application that you want to disable.
  5. Click on Uninstall updates (if have).
  6. Click on Disable.
  7. Confirm it by select OK.

I have disabled Google Currents, E-mail and a third app that was using ressources. And guess what – lag is now gone!
