Manage applications

Note: Manage your applications to keep your device running smoothly.
  • Research and monitor new applications that you install
    • Read Play Store application reviews before installing. Not all applications run smoothly on phones. Read customer reviews before downloading an application to see if it has a history of not working properly.
    • If your device starts having problems after installing an application, consider uninstalling the application (See below: 'Uninstall third-party applications.'
  • Keep applications updated
    1. From any Home screen, tap the Apps icon.
    2. Tap Play Store.
    3. Tap the Menu key and then tap My Apps.
      Note: To keep your apps automatically updated, tap the Menu key, tap Settings, and then tap Auto-update apps to select the check box.
    4. Choose one of the following options:
      • Tap Update [xx] to update all applications with updates available.
      • Tap an individual application and then tap Update to update a single application.
  • Uninstall third-party applications 
  • Clear application cache and data
  • Clear recent applications

    2. To close an individual recent application, touch an application from the list and drag it to the right.
    3. To close all recent applications, tap the Clear all  icon at bottom-right.

  • Never install a third-party Task Manager or Battery Manager
