Whenever you install an app right from Google Play, it offers an option that let you deactivate auto-update for that specific app. But now most of the people are missing that since it is available in Android 2.3+ only.

Even though a text only browser saves a lot of memory but sometime we want text along with images. At this moment, you can use Opera Mini which is the fastest web browser for mobile. Anyone doesn’t need any expert knowledge to use it rightly.
