One of the many not-so-useful additions to the TouchWiz Samsung Galaxy S4 is the recommended apps list that pops up on the notification drop-down when you plug in a set of earphones. If you have looked closely, all it does is list the five apps you last used and hence it is not that useful. I like to have my notification drop down as clean as possible.
However, there is an easy way to disable recommended apps in Galaxy S4 without rooting it.
Remove recommended apps in Galaxy S4
- Go to Settings
- Click on More –> Application Manager
- Scroll to the right to show the All Apps.
- Scroll down till you find the app ‘PageBuddyNotiSvc’. Click on the app.
- Uncheck ‘Show Notifications’.
This removes recommended apps in Galaxy S4 in the notification drop down.
