Android smartphones have become increasingly popular with billions of people worldwide both young and old getting to grips with this technology. Android phones are the proverbial “jack of all trades” for smartphones, as these phones offer amazing photography, top-notch gaming experience and an amazing internet connectivity.
However, there are time when your apps keep crashing without any prior warning, interrupting the previous activity on the app and making your smartphone a bit difficult to operate. In this piece, we will consider why apps crash unexpectedly and what to do when your apps keep crashing.
The major factors that make apps crash without warning hover around the chipset and memory. If your Android’s memory is low, certain apps may close up unexpectedly, as they will require more memory to operate properly. Also, a weak chipset may not be able to adequately sustain the strain associated with certain apps or games. In a brief moment, we will look at some of the fixes for this rather common Android bug.
- Restart your device: Restarting your android device can help you take care of this glitch, as this move will kill and restart the process run by the system, creating a fresh start for your Android device when your apps keep crashing. To restart your Android device, hold down the power button and wait for a number of options, click on restart and wait for your device to reboot.
- Check App permission: You may have apps that are not properly coded and may demand that you do not deny app permissions for the apps to work. Ideally, apps are supposed to work on your device even when their permissions are denied. If you have one of such apps on your device, go to Settings > Apps and choose the app you want to work on, now click on Permissions and grant the ones you may have denied earlier.
- Keep your apps updated: This is a no-brainer, as updated apps contain bug fixes which can help to solve app crashes.
- Clear Cache: Sometimes, certain apps can have rather large caches, taking up space for important information. Clearing your app cache can help you improve your device’s performance and halt app crashes. To do this, go to Settings > Storage and click on cached data, you can clear cache from there.
- Try a force stop: One of the easiest things to do when your apps keep crashing is to try a force stop. To do this, go to Settings > Apps, then click on the app that keeps crashing. Click on the app’s name then tap ‘Force stop’. This should decidedly take care of this glitch when your apps keep crashing.
- Free up some memory: As earlier mentioned, one of the major causes of app crashes is insufficient memory, as certain apps require more memory to operate properly. To make these apps work more smoothly, you need to free up some memory on your Android device, letting these apps work better. To do this, go to Settings > Apps, then select the games or apps you no longer need and uninstall.
These fixes are particularly helpful and can get your device working back at optimum levels in no time.
