    Been thinking of deleting Mails and use Sparks instead.
    Spark is great! Definitely worth the try.

    So awesome Fantastica and Spark. I wish both stock Mail and Calendar could be better. They are not bad, but ir could be better. I had deleted both stock apps and everything still run smoothly. Thanks for all the reply.

    I'm not quite sure I understand why you'd actually uninstall any stock apps. I just put them in a folder in a home screen far to the right and just ignore the ones I never use.
    That’s like downloading an app, realizing it’s garbage, and then moving it to a folder just for the sake of not deleting it. If I’m literally never going to use an app what’s the harm in making it go away?

    No, of course no harm, but it's not quite the same. "Deleting" a stock app doesn't recover the app's storage space. It's still on the phone, just not on a home screen nor available to launch. Deleting a third party app of course recovers the storage space.

    No, it will not hurt anything to either delete or move the stock calendar app on your device.

    I guess I'm the last of the stock calendar users. It works for what I need it to do.
    I still use the stock calendar. I’ve tried Fantastical 2 but still keep coming back to the stock app.

    I don't use Spark because if you have push notifications turned on (and who wouldn't?), Spark stores both your email credentials and your messages on their servers. No thanks. Gmail is my primary email, so I use Google's InBox app, but still keep the stock mail app set up (without notifications) because I find it easier to compose longer messages, and reply to specific messages within a thread of messages, with the stock mail app.

    I'm not quite sure I understand why you'd actually uninstall any stock apps. I just put them in a folder in a home screen far to the right and just ignore the ones I never use.
    I just want my screen has icon for apps that i use. No big issue, just don’t like apps that I don’t use will just be there on the screen.

    I’m well aware of how deleting stock apps works but I have a 256 GB phone and don’t plan on running low on memory. I just prefer not to have an app that I’m never going to use taking up screen real estate, even if it is in a folder. There isn’t a right or wrong answer here; just personal preference.
