Yes it is, as too many apps will slow your site down. But it’s important to remember that not all apps are created equally. Some are lightweight and will have very little to no impact on page load times, whereas others are code heavy and will have a major effect on site speed. So, it’s best to be selective about the apps you do install, making sure they really do add value. And, remember to remove any apps you’re no longer using – sometimes you’ll need to contact the app developer to make sure all the rogue snippets of code are removed as well.
