If you use utility apps such as weather, calculator, science apps, do you prefer easy to use but few features/data (just does the job) or packed with features but may look cluttered or needs practice to use?

Cluttered apps, however cool and functional they are, eventually get deleted.

Simple and functional doesn't mean unsophisticated in this context. The spectacularly good Wolfram Alpha app is a great example of exquisite functionality in a very simple package. In general, doing just one thing and doing it very well is best.

I like small, lightweight, loads super-fast, no fancy backgrounds etc. A weather app may be "beautiful" etc but I can't be bothered waiting for it to load the beauty.

I have an appreciation of both. Especially for my weather apps. I usually check my cluttered radar/temp/cloud cover/forecast app, but also am quick to check a beautifully designed, simple app called solar.

I have OCD. I am a minimalist. I am a clean freak. Give me just what I need and nothing more.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

I want everything even if I am overwhelmed with data and use less than half the features ;)

I download both :) I have a few calculator and weather apps. I use the basic ones on most days, but have the more complex ones on hand when I need more info (eg a major storm is approaching).
