Quickly and easily free up memory by clearing the app cache

Free up memory

The key is in memory. Not in RAM, which is also decisive, but about which you can not do anything. Not on external memory, which depends on an SD memory card. Buying a higher capacity one, or even installing it if you don’t have one, won’t fix anything. Everything is in making space in the internal memory, and more specifically, in the partition where the applications are installed. The fastest way to speed up your smartphone is by uninstalling applications. But sometimes you don’t have apps to uninstall, because you want to have them all. What to do then?

Clear the cache

Applications like Chrome, Gmail, Facebook, YouTube and company, are relatively heavy. They can be 50MB per application. But if you look at the space they occupy, you will find that these can go up to 350 MB. Why? For the data, and for the cache. Among the data is your account data. If you delete the data, you will have to log back into your account in those applications, and when you do, it will download all the data again. Thus, it is an unhelpful solution. However, it is different if you clear the cache. In principle, erasing this memory is not so useful, because it helps to speed up the mobile. If you go to a website that is already cached, you won’t have to wait so long to download. The same happens with Facebook pages or profiles, Gmail folders, or YouTube videos. But it is also true that many times we do not want so much cached data. There are websites that we are not going to enter again, or if we are going to do so, waiting a second is not going to matter to us. We also won’t mind that a Gmail folder takes two seconds to load. What’s more, the cache can only be useful if the smartphone works well, because if not, it will take longer in the end while it processes the data. Hence, the simplest recommendation to clear the cache is to clean the applications that occupy the most.

To do this, go to Settings> Applications, and in the first tab, choose to organize the applications by size. Now, from top to bottom, uninstall all those you have that you don’t want. Maybe you have installed a hamburger app to see what to order and in the end you haven’t used it, taking up space. Second, go to those applications that you have first, and that take up a lot of space, such as Chrome, Gmail, the Google Search Application, Facebook and co. All those that exceed 30 MB are useful. Upon entering, look for the Cache Memory option. Anything you can remove here is useful. In general, if there is less than 3 MB of cache memory it is not very relevant, but it is very possible that in many of these apps the cache memory is very high. This should be one of your main sources to free up memory when you see that the mobile starts to work slowly.
