In time, however, something happened in that operating system: application “Market”Â started to make updates to more applications than I’ve ever had in the phone, and not actually made those updatesÂ in software and I always had to do updates to more than 1,000 applications that require updates to the extent that I had a maximum of 100 applications from all …
