Delete Apps You Don’t Use
Time for Some Smart Spring Cleaning!
It’s easy to rack up apps, especially if you have children or babysit for kids who enjoy playing on your smartphone or iPad. It’s easy to get excited about new games that become available. But if you aren’t using them, get rid of them. The reason behind this is pretty simple. Apps take up space and use up data – this isn’t necessarily an issue if you don’t have much on your phone, but eventually, everything adds up and can slow down your device tremendously.
Think of it like cleaning out your closet. If you have clothes taking up space that you never wear, it’s time to get rid of them. When it comes to apps, you might have one from a long time ago on your phone that has access to your data. Maybe you joined a dating site a while back, and just forgot to delete the app. Your significant other probably isn’t going to like this if they ever see it still on your device…so delete it. It’s so easy to do. All you have to do is press down on the app until it starts shaking. You’ll see an “x” appear. Click on it, and it’s deleted! If you have an Android, just go to the menu and “manage apps” to delete the app.
It’s time for some “spring cleaning” for your smartphone and/or tablet. So get to it – free up space and make sure that unwanted programs don’t have access to your personal data. If you aren’t using it, it’s time to say “farewell!”
