Should you delete these apps?

If you have been planning to uninstall these apps, you might want to think twice. If these apps have been valuable to you in any manner, you can still keep them as the government is not putting a ban on them (at least as of now). However, if your personal morale does not allow you to use a Chinese app, you might feel free to get rid of them.
