What is shovelware?

It's developed quickly: these should be developed quickly. There is often no reference to function or usefulness, and the goal of the test may simply be to get the software to work most of the time. This is mostly true of games designed for consoles or the web.

Es wird auf Kunden gezwungen: Vorinstallierte Software auf Laptops und auf Carrier-verteilten Telefonen wird in der Regel mit Shovelware geliefert. Es wird auch „Bloatware“ genannt, weil es nur dazu dient, das Gerät zu verlangsamen und wertvollen Speicherplatz zu belegen. Einige dieser Programme können nicht vom Gerät entfernt werden. Andere Beispiele sind diejenigen, die mit anderen Software-Web-Browser-Bars installiert werden.

It's Filler: In the days when software usually came in CD and DVD ROMs, shovelware was supposed to fill the rest of the hard drive space.
