Is a smartphone app always telling you 'not responding? Close?' Here is what you need to do







It has been observed that atimes when our devices are at optimal use, they start displaying things like 'not responding, close?'. This problem can in most cases might be as a result of accumulated cookies or cache. I'll be explaining how to fix this problem just below.



Clear the application's  cache
In some cases, you can get the app going again by just emptying the cache. The cache is a storage area that temporarily holds data so it can be quickly retrieved without needing to be reloaded. This could solve your problem and emptying it is easy.

First go in the Settings from your smartphone’s home screen. You should then go into your Apps or Application manager, it depends on your device. From there you should either be able to scroll down and hit Clear cache or you might have to first go into Storage then Clear cache.

Once this has been completed, go back into your application and see if your problem has been solved. If not, you should try one of the other solutions here.

Clear out the application data
Deleting all the data contained in the app, is similar to our first tip but erases quite a bit more. It sets the app back to square one and gets rid of your saved information, hopefully including whatever glitchy data was causing the problem.

Remember, when you do this to some specific applications, your files, settings, accounts, databases and other information will be erased. You should make sure you have the log-in information for the account.

To get started, head into your Settings and find the Apps or Application manager. From there you should be able to scroll down to Clear data or go into Storage first then Clear data.

Uninstall the app and reinstall
This helps in some cases, but it would be advisable to back up some details such as browsing history, site preferences etc.

Reboot
If after trying all this methods out and the problem persists, your last resort should be rebooting the whole device. Thanks.
