Some of my archos/arnova devices are running out of appspace and slowing down due to bloated google play updates. Here's how I made lots more space:

1) Rogue apps: in settings/manage apps/downloaded or whatever, I hit the option to sort by size. At top there would be 1 or 2 minor apps that had exploded into insane size. Probably due to leaky caches, but I didn't check that and just uninstalled and reinstalled. Became about 8 times smaller. BTW I realize you can just clear the cache or run apps to clear all unused cache, but didn't have luck with these approaches in the past.

2) Needless apps: In the same list I noticed new google bloatware that I don't use, like hangouts and google chat and chrome. We aren't allowed to uninstall them, only their updates. Finally I tried dumping their updates and it made a lot of positive difference. I believe their updates won't be automatically done even when others are.
