Attempting to leave Google (part 1)

I’ve been wrestling with the idea of living Google free for a while but I’ve decided I’m going to at least give it a go. I’m not sure how it’s going to go but here goes.

My first step is to remove both the YouTube app off my iPhone and delete my Google account from the accounts and settings on iOS. This now means that my Apple mail app isn’t going to be bringing me in my gmail. I’ve switched anything important over to my iCloud account so I’ll just make a point of checking gmail in Safari (on my Mac rather than my main iOS devices) periodically to make sure that I’ve not missed anything.

Over time this should let me know if I actually need my Gmail or not.

Baby steps but a start.
