Tip: Clear your phone’s cache for more speed and storage

Something every Android owner should do that not everyone knows about is clearing your apps’ cache in your phone’s settings. An app’s cache is basically a temporary storage area for an application while it’s running. It can store things like temporary images downloaded from the internet. Clearing the cache can solve problems you may be experiencing with an app, or simply improve the speed and efficiency of it. Not to mention how much space you’ll be freeing on your phone, as Google+, Facebook and other big apps can store over 1GB of cache over time if not cleared occasionally.

First, go to your phone’ settings, then tap ‘Apps’
