Yes as strange as that sounds that's exactly what's been happening.
I’d noticed in the past few
weeks that apps on the main screen of my phone were getting deleted
somehow. I’ve had to download the Webster dictionary twice. For the life
of me I couldn’t figure out how this was happening. But it started to
get annoying. Of course with an app being deleted all the other apps
rearranged themselves on the screen so it was hard to find things
Then the other day it became clear why it was
happening. I’d pulled my phone out of my pocket. I noticed all the icons
on the first screen on my phone were bouncing around with the X up in
the corner which allows you to delete them. I quickly got all the little
apps to stop bouncing.
A thought occurred to me on how my apps
were disappearing. I put the phone back in my pocket with the screen
facing toward my thigh. I walked a few steps and pulled the phone out of
my pocket. Sure enough all the apps for the icons were bouncing again.
my thigh activated the apps when I was walking. Once that happened as I
continued to walk the phone rubbed against my thigh and that caused an
app to get deleted. The dictionary is the app that's been deleted more than the others. Not sure what to make out of that.
This usually happens when I wear dress pants for work. I've never had it happen when wearing jeans. To prevent this from happening I now have to wait until the phone goes to sleep. Then it is safe to put it in my pocket.
