    Yep I found that out on Friday. It's kind of annoying having the phone automatically add shortcuts.

    You know, I will never for the life of me understand why that is even an option in the Play Store ... It has to be the most annoying "feature"! Almost as annoying as the name Play Store

    It's a way to make your home screen look like an iPhone, app shortcuts everywhere.
