None of this answers the question asked. Sounds like no one knows what it is really for. When I bought my phone about two years ago, this app was never on the phone and I noticed it showing in my download app settings and wondered how it was automatically put in there since I never downloaded it. I assume when the Android OS was upgraded that the app was added then.
My main question is, will it mess the phone up if I uninstall it?? I need to make more room on my phone as I cannot download any apps I need to use as the upgrades for the permanent apps included with phone takes up so much space already.
