There are numerous apps on Google Play Store and most of them are available for free. This is the primary reason why most Android users install multiple apps on their devices. But when there are multiple apps installed in your device then the major problem occurs as no Android device supports the way to use all the applications effectively.
So, is there any solution?
Yes, there is definitely a solution to use your android applications effectively. The very first step is to recognize the unused apps. Why unused apps are a major issue?
Unused apps are those that you are probably not using since long and still they have occupied space in your mobile storage. Secondly, they update from time to time and when you update the app then your entire system will download and install it. Most importantly, some apps might have certain services linked to them that keep operating in the background. This consumes your valuable hardware space, which can reduce your phone speed. Hence, if you wish to use the android applications effectively then it is important that you remove all the unused apps. Once the unused apps will be removed then your phone will support enough space to use the other applications effectively.
