Android will delete apps from phones

Beware Android mobile app developers! The new Android filters will help smartphone users keep their phones clean... and delete the apps that have not been used in quite a long time.

So our recommendation is to keep always the marketing strategy active, retargeting the app and making promos and ads so people keep using you app. If not... it will be deleted.

I think that It is not such a good idea...
I have some apps on my phone that I use only on certain occasions - for example, app showing trains schedule.
It is a small app, not taking much space on my phone and I use it twice a year maximum.
So I don't know, it depends, how often the apps will be deleted I guess.
