Latin dictionary pack is important for saved languages in qwerty and quicksearch box is google search

Inviato dal mio GT-I9001 con Tapatalk 2

Yes, it is. This is for people that don't need those. For example I never used Google Search and I'm using SwiftKey.

So wait its the same apps with the same options just smaller ?

In XS package a lot of apps are removed, see list of included and excluded. Included apps are the same.

- GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk
- GoogleFeedback.apk
- GoogleLoginService.apk
- GooglePartnerSetup.apk
- GoogleServicesFramework.apk
