I was watching the last android podcast, you said, you wished there was a way to play games and kill other programs that could slow down game play. The app is called Tasker, write a profile to kill those programs only when you play games. Look for it and try it.

Hey Guys,

Love the show. I've been able to get a lot more out of my HTC Droid Incredible since I've been listening. I'm almost to the point where I like to point out the shortcomings of the iPhone compared to my Android powered phone.

I had a question that I thought you might be able to answer. With all the talk about apps looking at data and having access to your phone's information, I've started trying to remove apps that were preloaded that I don't use. One of these apps is CityID. Although I admit that being told what City the number that is calling is from was kind of cool, it wasn't worth the 2 dollars a month to me. So, I thought I'd uninstall it since I'm not sure what it's doing now that my free subscription ran out. It obviously keeps launching because after I get a call and run Task Killer, it's listed as a running app. However, it doesn't appear that I have the option to remove it. Am I stuck with this app or is there a way to remove it?

Thanks,
Scott From Dallas, TX
