They finally came to sense. Chrome apps sounded like a stupid idea to me from the very beginning. How is that different from a bookmark anyway?

Most of my "Google Apps" are either links to online stuff, or stuff I didn't use anyway!

Let's see...

"Gmail Offline" - well, I'm never offline anyway because I have my laptop on wifi or, if out and about, my phone on 3G/4G - so I'll have some sort of connection. And if I don't, I can save them in my Outbox until I get an internet connection.
"Web Store" - I'm sure there is a link to the chrome web store elsewhere
"SparkChess 9 Lite" - that just takes me to www.sparkchess.com - so not needed
"Google+" - well, I can access that somehow... oh yeah, https://plus.google.com
"Spotify - Music for every moment" - just a link to https://play.spotify.com, which is the spotify web player!
"Cut The Rope" - an extension, not an app - and I don't use it often anyway
"World Clocks 2"/"Swiss Clock CE-7"/"CSS3Clock" - extensions that I'm sure I can find!

So yeah, most I either don't use or just links... so not needed!
