Default Three random apps appeared on my phone

"People Small App", "Small Phone" and "Home Anywhere".

I did not install these apps. I have no recollection of ever even seeing them before. I'm running ViperOne 5.6.0, with ViperFlats theme installed. Does anyone know where these apps came from, what they even do (because it honestly seems like I have no use for them) and why I can't uninstall them? When I click uninstall, it uninstalls the updates, but the app itself stays (applies for all three).
Phone:
HTC One M8 (Sprint)
ROM: ViperOne M8 2.x.x
Kernel:
S-On

Tablet:
Nexus 7 (flo)
ROM: CleanROM 3.x.x
Kernel: ElementalX

  3. Go To Batch Actions
  4. Go To Uninstall Section

Thanks guys. I actually just figured it out when playing with the side panel thing. I had never really used it before, as I have no use for it really. I was just concerned about random apps that I did not install, being on my device. Also, I just recently installed Viper, so I was unaware.

Seeing as I hardly use this app, I'm just going to uninstall it.
