All Android smartphones have a phone manager. applications that we can access in the settings menu. It is usually at the top level somewhere, although it may vary slightly from phone to phone. But once we get there, we are at the heart of the matter. This is where we can see each application installed on our phone or tablet. And it is a very useful place to do a good cleaning if needed.

  

Clear application cache

As we use applications, they begin to store files for future reference. These files are stored in the cache gives application. For example, when we are using application of Facebook, it saves the images and other pieces of the stories we have seen, so they don't need to download the next time we open the application. This saves time and data.

The next time you use the app, it will download everything you need, just as you did the first time you used it. Clear the data in cache does not clear other data such as logins or saved games.

When to clear cache or data?

When should we clean the cache of a application manually? Chances are you'll never need to do it. But if one application start with weird or slow behavior we should start by clearing the cache.

What if one application really if you "pass" or if you want to start from scratch you can go out and clean your data and start over from the beginning. Just Touchez the "Clear data" button. You will get a prompt asking if this is really what you want to do. Just confirm and it's done.
