If that doesn’t work, you should consider restarting your entire android device. If you have been using your phone for a prolonged amount of time, it can have issues and a massive restart will help it push through and work better.

At this point, you have probably fixed your issues, however, if your apps keep crashing, you can try updating your phone. 

  • Step 1: Navigate to Settings on your android device. 
  • Step 2: Select Software Update and then Download and Install
  • Step 3: This will then check to see if an update is available. If so, select install and then allow your device to install and update.

If you are still having issues, you should consider uninstalling and reinstalling the app itself, which can reset it and clear any data that may be an issue. If this still isn’t working, check your storage and internet connection, to ensure that you have a good connection and enough storage to run whatever app you are struggling with. Hopefully, then, your Android apps will stop crashing.
