Clear App Cache / Data:

NOTE: In case one of your third party applications doesn’t work as intended (crashes, freezes etc.), you might be able to fix this behavior by clearing the app’s cache or data.

WARNING! Clearing an app’s data will result in the deletion of all personal information stored within the application, such as credit card and login information, profiles, high scores, settings etc. As such you should try fixing the app by clearing the cache first (this will not remove personal information).

  2. Access “Settings
  3. Swipe to “Device” and tap “Apps
  4. Swipe to “Downloaded”, “Running” or “All
  5. Select the desired app and tap “Clear cache
  6. If necessary, tap “Clear data” > “OK

  1. Turn off the phone
  2. Press and hold “Power
  3. After a couple of seconds, press and hold “Volume Up” as well
  4. At the “Select Boot Mode” screen, release both buttons
