I start with NeatROM Lite which I strongly recommend, fantastic ROM, Dev and Community but it will work with other ROMS too.
EXTRA removable apps for those not on a lite version.

Also Galaxy S4 Removable HERE

First get link2sd as it will make it much easier to follow, get it even if its just to do this then you can delete it.
Do as i have in the screen shots at the bottom of this post, put drop down menu on ALL and NAME. LINK2SD

*IMPORTANT* Please Read:

All the apps i have uninstalled with no problems at all, done this for months so its well tested.
Remember not to blindly follow as you may use something i don't.
I use different launcher and keyboard for example so i don't need Touchwiz and Sammy keyboard.
If you use Touchwiz then keep "TwDVFSApp" too.
If you use Multi Window leave "FlashBarService"
Some themes/mods use "" so be careful with that, maybe find out from mod dev if its used.
As i always say "use common sense!" most things are obvious what they do so think carefully if you will need it before deleting, freeze first to be safe then delete later.

To remove apps altogether from the system and to stop apps reinstalling themselves when flashing certain mods delete them from the Preload folder too, but be careful as they go by different names.
You will need Root Explorer app or similar that allows you to change permission to R/W so you can delete them.
