One of the biggest problems with Verizon's service is that they tend to load their smartphones with what has been appropriately titled "bloatware" or apps that we don't really want, but have to have. The latest move has had the internet up in arms - the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have the capability to download apps on its own thanks to Digital Turbine's Ignite. This has been used before on T-Mobile and Verizon phones, but it didn't make people nervous - and now they are since they know the capabilities. Many are worried we will get even more health or reading apps that we won't use.

Engadget reached out to Verizon to ask for details and they found out that it isn't going to be as bad as it could be. It is just to make sure that you get the most recent software or any fixes for resets. You probably won't see apps popping onto your phone without warning. They also said that you are able to uninstall any new apps that would pop up. You are also able to disable (but not uninstall) Ignite.

Of course, this won't mitigate all of the fears that people have - but it should serve as at least a word of confidence that your carrier won't completely take over your phone and it might actually make your life easier thanks to the updates you don't have to search for anymore.

Still, look for other carriers to pick this up as well since Verizon has done it.
