How to solve common Android App crash issues on your phone

It has become a thing of the past for anyone not to have a smartphone, unlike before that most people do not really see it as important or necessary and are just quite okay with there cellphone, now it has become necessary and important in our current world as there are so many things you can get done fast and easy with your smartphone. So many users have become so fond of their phones as they can't do without certain apps to get through their day to day activities. Despite the existence of so many of these mobile apps, they are not dependable as it's a norm to experience crashing of apps.

Unlike when the likes of BlackBerry used to dominate the mobile market with like 72% few years ago, the Android currently has taken over being the most extensively used mobile operating system(OS) which is dependable, has stability and protects from viruses and malware issues. Facing app crash issues is inevitable, as this happens from time to time. Some of the common reasons behind app crashing includes:

- Device incompatibility & database contention

- incorrect memory & CPU usage

- Browser incompatibility

- Network changes & bandwidth issues

Others could include : Bugs in production, integration dependencies, poor front end optimization and other related issues from developers of this apps and phones.


Some of the common reasons are stated below:

Despite the fact of how so many apps are rated on Google Play Store with 3,4,5 star reviews, it becomes annoying and frustrating when those apps which had good reviews and seem to work on other people's phone don't get to work on your phone.

All this issues seem to exist mainly because there are so many android smartphones from different makers with different versions such as Nexus 5X, 6P, Samsung S6, Huawei Mate S, LGV10, HTC ONE M9 and lots more.

Android app developers can not test their app with all this product available, not to mention the existence of various version of Android OS, including those running older versions.

Also apps sometimes contradict each other making one work and the other not to.

Apps are regularly updated and during that time, an app becomes slow or stop working and others might occur due to the fact that the phone is running an old version of OS or the updated app comes with bug issues which is unknown to the maker.

Below are some of the tips to prevent your Android app from crashing every now and then.


Clearing of App data consistently


In the App Manager list on your Android phone is a button called "Clear Data". This button removes user-configuration as well as the app if it were installed for the first time. The Clear Data is alike to Clear Cache except for the fact that you will have to reconfigure the app. When data sometimes overloads it slows down the phone itself or make crash issues occur. So pressing the Clear Data button all of the data stored is cleared off and it becomes all fresh again, and this should be done from time to time.


Uninstall Apps not needed


Apps that aren't relevant to you shouldn't be downloaded in the first place to begin with. Apps that you don't make use of should be uninstalled. You can check your app drawer to this. Note that improperly written apps can cause issues for your Android device, and built in problems which can range from storing important data like a plain text file in your SD to rubbishing your notification bar with regular updates which cant be disabled.


Create space on your device


Every smartphone has a storage capacity that's limited, and if reached at some point could cause crashing issues of apps on your phone If it's not handled well. For example newer low end devices such as the MOTO E has 8GB built in storage which it's big part is covered by the system. In situations like this, the best and simplest way is to free up space by up installing apps. For music apps, locating where there files are stored can be stressful so it would be better to use the app CCleaner.
You can also make use of DiskUsage especially if you interested in getting a visual display of where your memory is going as it displays file sizes and locations too.


Don't make use of different network types


Most android app users experience app crashing after changing their network connection to either WiFi or mobile data. Truth to be told, Apps don't usually crash on network change except they aren't coded properly.
Flagship phones such as Samsung's Galaxy series come with a built in auto network switch feature to minimise data loss and transition the connection switch seamlessly. But stability of some apps isn't assured as they still crash and most users keep experiencing this from time to time. To prevent an app from crashing, turn off the current network you using first before switching to another connection.


Check Update reviews before downloading


This is the most common mistake every android user makes. When an update comes for an app, try to visit PlayStore to check the current review before updating as some of the app updates comes with bug issues of which crashing might be one of them, as such affects the current one. Even I have been a victim of this several times until when I actually found out that checking review is better before updating so you don't regret over a short period of time. So endeavor to check review of an app update before downloading, because of course some people would have downloaded it before, so if it's actually good, you did see a good comment and if it's the other way round then it means you will have to wait for another update to pop up before updating.

Do you have solution to android app crash issues different from this? Let's get your opinion from the comment section.
