Installing and trying variety of apps on Android devices are fun, but the real challenge comes in when you need to manage and free up memory space by removing apps. Apps and respective file folders gradually swallow disk space and RAM as many of them run in the background that your device gets choked with limited disk space and reducing RAM memory. To make the matter even worse, some of the preinstalled or bloatware rob around 2GB of device storage space that you are left with limited room for installing apps of your choice. Hence, you may delete downloaded apps, but is it possible to remove preinstalled apps and free up disk space?
Yes, absolutely possible
Agreed, deleting apps and cleaning Android device may seem complicated initially, but you will soon know how to do it all by yourself. Here are some quick fixes and tips on how to remove apps and liberate space to download more apps and keep device running at its peak performance level.
Disable bloatware apps
You can disable unused Android apps to reduce load on the RAM memory slot. BY disabling those bloatware apps, you can mitigate the memory space used by the background activities of those apps. There are two ways you can do it; either using ‘Application Manager’ option or you simply do it by using an Android optimization app. You can use this All-In-One Toolbox app which facilitates disabling apps. Once installed, you can use it to clean Android of junks and temp files, uninstall apps in batches in one go as well as disable apps which start up when the device boots. Click ‘Boot Speedup’ to disable apps you no longer want to get initiated when Android boots. Thus, those preinstalled apps will be inactive and not eat up memory space unless you launch them. If you do not want to install an app, then access ‘Application Manager’ from ‘Settings’ and ‘More’ options. Then, swipe your finger on the screen till you get ‘Running’ or ‘All’ apps. Tap the apps you want disable, in the next screen, tap ‘Clear Cache’, ‘Clear Data’ and then, ‘Disable’ to disable them. Once you have successfully disabled an app, you can find the app under ‘Disabled’ list of apps, by swiping on the ‘Application Manager’ screen.
If your Android device is rooted, then you can get rid of preinstalled apps of your device. You can get rid of unwanted bloatware apps which are taking up memory space you need. However, make sure you do not remove any system apps in the process of cleaning your Droid disk space. For this, an app called NoBloat Free app comes handy. If your app Android device is rooted, then use NoBloat Free app to delete preinstalled apps and clean Android. First of all, install the app. While installation, you will be prompted if the permissions are acceptable, select ‘Accept’ to allow installation. Tap the app from the app drawer, select ‘Grant’ when you will be asked for Superuser request. In the next screen, you will see the option called ‘System Apps’. Select the option, choose the app to delete, there you can select from ‘Disable’, ‘Backup’, ‘Backup and Delete’ and ‘Delete without backup’. Click the preferred radio button and click ‘Okay’. You are recommended to select ‘Backup and Delete’ option. And that’s it.
There are other easier means to remove apps and free up device storage memory. These include moving apps to SD screen (you can download Link2SD app for this), clear history, clear cache and data boost your memory from time to time.
