How To Fix Freezing And Crashing Apps On Android

One of the reasons we love the Android OS is because of the variety of apps we can install on our phone. With Google Play, the number of applications we can download is almost endless. But how do you feel when you download an app, and it's freezing or crashing frequently? Bad, right?

Unfortunately, apps stopped working

So how do you fix it? Keep on reading to find out!

1. Restart your android device


This should be the fix method you should try. When you restart your device, the app processes running in the background will close. That way, you get to free up clogged memory. After restarting, if the app keeps crashing or freezing, move to other methods.

2. Update your apps


It is possible that your apps are crashing because of a software glitch. Developers always try to remove the software glitches their users complain of from subsequent updates. You see why it's essential to update your apps? Now open Play store and update that app.

3. Clear data and cache


Cache piles up for the apps we use most frequently. Due to this, such app may run slowly or crash often. This is common with popular apps like Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, Telegram ,Viber etc.

Here is how to clear your cache
  • Go to Settings
  • Tap on Apps (App Manager, Manage apps, depending on the Android device)
  • Find the app that keeps crashing or freezing and tap on it
  • Next, tap Clear cache
  • Tap Force stop
  • Go back to the Home screen and relaunch the app.
If this doesn't work, clear the data instead of the cache. If you clear your data, all your preferences, settings will be lost.

4. Free up space


If apps do not work properly, it could be as a result of inadequate space on the device. Try freeing up some space to let the apps run properly. Delete files that are no longer useful and uninstall apps that you no longer use. Another simple way to free space is to use CCleaner app. It's available on Play store for download.

5. Reinstall the app


Sometimes uninstalling an app then installing it again is all you need to fix freezing and crashing issues.

Which of these methods worked for you? Let us know in the comments box.

How To Take Good Care Of Your Phone

Are you thinking of getting a new phone or you just got one recently? A quality phone is quite expensive and you definitely want it to last long.

Caring for your smartphone

There are some things you should do to make your phone last longer and to look good at the same time. Read on to learn how to care for your phone.

1. Keep it dry


A very quick way to ruin your phone is to allow liquids pour on it. Water is the major culprit here. Keep your phone away from the rain and be extremely careful when using it near open water like pools, ponds, streams or toilets.

2. Don't drop your phone


Another common cause of phone damage is dropping it. Hold your phone firmly to prevent it from dropping.
Also, put your phone securely in your pocket while not using it and avoid leaving your phone on table edges or where it can easily drop to the floor.

3. Keep your phone away from children


Children can be so careless in handling your phone so you should keep it away from them. They may end up breaking it, dropping it in water or even misplacing it.

4. Avoid extremes


Your phone will malfunction or get damaged if you use it in extreme temperatures. Don't leave your phone sitting in the car on a hot sunny day or leave it in a cold place like a refrigerator.

5. Protect the screen


One of the most annoying and disappointing things is to get a scratch on the screen of a new phone. Well, you can protect it from a scratch or crack by investing in a good screen protector.

6. Invest in a case


A case will protect your phones from falls and scratches. It will also help in making your phone look new and might protect it from internal damage that results from falls. Another added advantage is that a case can make your phone look beautiful and unique.

7. Take your phone with you always if possible


Never let your phone out of your sight. Avoid lending people unless it's really necessary as accidents can happen. And if you're giving to someone, make sure he's responsible.

8. Protect it from theft


A damage is not the only thing that can take away your phone from you. Phones are valuable so they can be stolen by thieves. Keep this in mind and protect it.

Have you joined some programs that claimed you will make fortune, they take your money and till this moment you haven’t make anything from them? or you are just that person who just want to make some extra income spending some times online?
Good News, as you will learn how to make ₦40,000 (Naira) monthly without spending a dime in this article, and all that is required from you is your time and you will be smiling to the bank every month if you take this serious.
Cash Awoof is a pay to participate program where you get paid for registering as member, daily login to your account, reading news, making friends (just as you do on Facebook), watching videos (just as you do on Youtube), commenting on news, referring friends, participating in quiz and even more.
Unlike many other programs out there that promise to pay you for reading news then ask you to pay 1000 Naira or some money to join, Cash Awoof registration is totally free and you get FREE ₦1000 immediately you register an account.
Let’s Make a Quick Breakdown and Calculation of How Cash Awoof pays and How To Make ₦40,000 (Naira) Monthly Without Spending a Dime.
  1. You get ₦1000 immediately you create an account.
  2. Daily logging in to your account, you get ₦50 (₦50 x 30 days = ₦1500).
  3. For referring friends to join the site with your referral link, you get ₦100 per every referral. Let’s assume you invite 10 people daily. Remember it’s free to join so your friends will be willing to join since they won’t be spending any money to join and also start making money. 10 referral x ₦100 is ₦1000 (₦1000 x 30 days = ₦30,000)
  4. For reading news, you get ₦1 limited to 50 news daily (₦50 x 30 days = ₦1500).
  5. Commenting on news, you get ₦2 and you can comment on many news as you want. Let’s assume you comment on 50 news daily (₦100 x 30 days = ₦3000).
  6. For every accepted friend request you sent, you get ₦1. Let’s assume you make 100 friends on Cash Awoof daily (₦100 x 30 days = ₦3000).
  7. For watching videos, you get ₦2 to ₦10. Let’s assume you watch 20 videos at ₦3 daily (₦60 x 30 days = ₦1800).
Now let’s put all the numbers together (Bring out your calculator ):
₦1000 + ₦1500 + ₦30000 + ₦1500 + ₦3000 + ₦3000 + ₦1800 = ₦41800
That’s a whooping ₦41,800 for just doing exact same thing you do normally online and you won’t have to spend anything to achieve this.
Wait! Are you doubting or thinking how are they making the money they will be paying us if we won’t pay anything..
It’s simple.
Do you know the owner of Facebook “Mark Zuckerberg” worth roughly USD52.9 Billion and Jack Dorsey of Twitter worth USD5.2 Billion?
They made these huge amount of money from your presence on their platform, but what did you get in return? Nothing!
Cash Awoof turns the table around by appreciating you for using their platform and give back from whatever profit they make from sponsors and campaigns on their platform. No they don’t want to be stingy like other.
So now is the time to stop wasting data on unnecessary chat and start making money doing same thing you do on Facebook, Youtube, and every other social media accounts you have.

20 Amazing Things You Can Do With Coca-Cola Besides Drinking It

If all you have been doing with Coca-Cola is just drinking it, you have been missing out.
Coke is actually a Jack of all trades as it is useful in cleaning, health and beauty, de-odorising, cooking etc.

Coca-Cola

This listicle looks at 20 things you can do with Coca-Cola; from loosening stiff bolts to getting gum out of your hair.
Let's go!

1. Loosen stiff bolts

Stiff bolt

It can so frustrating when you cannot loosen bolts you want to. All you need to do is to add a bit of coke. The phosphoric acid will react with the rust to set your bolts free.

2. Clean burnt pans and pots

Coca-Cola and a burnt pan

Pour the drink in the pan, simmer for a while. Rinse then wipe it off.

3. Soothe insect bites


Be sure to apply some Coca-Cola next time you get stung by a wasp to soothe the pain. The only problem is, a wasp’s venom is injected into the skin, so dumping Coke on it won’t really help, unless you act really fast. This also works well with jellyfish stings.

4. Remove blood stains


Is one of your clothes stained with blood? Mix the drink with your normal washing detergent and water. Soak the clothe in it and wait for the magic.

5. Remove grease


If your kitchen utensils are so covered with grease that hot soapy water does not work, soak them in some delicious coke and leave for about 30 minutes.

This is also applicable to removing oil and grease from your driveway. Spray coke on it, let it sit for a day, then hose away.

6. Get chewing gum out of your hair


Getting chewing gum out of your hair is very challenging but Coca-Cola can help here. Just sprinkle some of it on the affected spot and wait for some minutes for the coke to break down the gum. It also works perfectly if gum is stuck on your shoes.

7. Kickstart your compost

Compost

Add Coca-Cola to your compost to enhance it. The sugar in the drink attracts micro-organisms and the acids break down organic matter, effectively kickstarting your compost.

8. Polish your jewellery


Let your jewellery sit in Coca-Cola overnight then scrub it lightly with a piece of cloth to breathe new life into it.

9. Remove temporary hair dye


Do you want to remove temporary hair dye from your hair? Just soak it with Coca-Cola for some minutes then wash it off. This method will still help in fading permanent hair dye.

10. Give yourself a tan


To give yourself a tan, simply spray Coca-Cola on your skin before you sit in the sun.

11. Tenderise meat


If you want your meat softer and can't afford to wait for long, add some coke to your meat when cooking.

12. Defrost your windscreen


Is your windscreen covered with snow and you need it to defrost. Just pour Coca-Cola generously on it. Wait for a minute, then scrape off the ice.

13. Prevent slipping 


This is particularly helpful if you have little children around. Mop the floor with Coke and your floor will be slip free.

14. Create fake antiques


Do you need something to look older than it actually is. Simply soak letters or pictures  in the drink, then allow to dry for an aged look.

15. Caramelise onions


Just cook your sliced onions in Coca-Cola to get sliced caramelised onions.

16. Make a fountain


Stuff a pack of mints (preferably Mentos) into a bottle of low sugar Coke. Stand back and watch the fountain.

17. Remove rust


Do you have a rusted metal you want to clean? Have you tried using coke?
The trace amounts of phosphoric acid in coke are enough to corrode rust. Use tin foil to rub the Coke into the rust and watch it disappear. You can use a fabric if you don't have tin foil.

18. Fix your car battery


If you're not out of battery and your car won't start, it's could be that your battery's terminals are dirty. The acids in Coca-Cola is enough to clean the terminals.

19. Pesticide


Did you know that farmers in India use Coca-Cola and Pepsi as an inexpensive form of pesticide.
Fill a bowl with Coke and place it in your garden. It will attract insects and they'll eventually fall into it and drown.

20. Clean your toilet bowl

Coke can actually remove hard-to-clean stains on the inside of the toilet bowl. Pour it directly on the stains and let it sit for hours (the longer the better) to loosen the stains then scrub it and flush.

14 Signs You're Smarter Than An Average Person

Are you a genius or are you smarter than an average person- You deserve to know!
If most of these scientifically-proven signs apply to you, you’re probably smarter than you think. Let's go 🕺

Smart people

1. You're not easily distracted


The ability to concentrate for a long period of time is often a sign of intelligence. Michael Melnick of the University of Rochester and other researchers discovered that intelligence is linked to the ability to ignore distractions.

2. You're a night owl


A night owl is a person who stays up late at night or goes to bed late. British reasearchers in a study, "Why Night Owls Are More Intelligent" proved night owls are likely to be smarter.

3. You are a curious person


Albert Einstein famously said: “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” Curiousity promotes thinking and the search for knowledge which eventually results into intellectual development.

4. You're funny


The ability to make people laugh has a lot of correlation with intelligence.

5. You enjoy your own company


According to Dipankar Trehan, "highly intelligent people tend to be individualistic". An individualistic person is someone who Interested in himself/ herself rather than others and may be egocentric.

Moreover, a research from the British Journal of Psychology suggests that smarter people tend to derive less satisfaction than most people do from socializing with friends.

6. You understand how much you don't know


As Jim Winer writes ,
intelligent people "are not afraid to say: 'I don't know.' If
they don't know it, they can learn it."

The smartest folks are able to admit when they aren't
familiar with a particular concept.

7. You can predict what someone is going to say next in a conversation 



8. You're a lefty


According to researcher Alan Searleman of St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York, “southpaws have higher IQs, solve problems better and enjoy more extensive vocabularies than righties". Searleman’s research found there were more left-handed people with IQs over 140 than right-handed people.

He also points out that some of the most brilliant people to ever live — like Sir Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein were lefties.


9. You're good at using the internet


An internet savvy person is likely to have discovered tons of information on the web. Moreover, it takes some level of intelligence to be able to use the internet without being taught.


10. You were a teenage virgin


A study "Smart teens don't have sex (or kiss much either)" showed that a large proportion of higher intelligent people did not engage in early sexual activity as compared with average individuals.


11. You have smart parents


Research has shown that intelligence is heritable. So if your parents are smart, it's possible that you may have inherited your intelligence from them.

12. You adapt easily


Smart students still perform excellently even though they change school to another with a different curriculum or when one of their teachers are replaced with another whose teaching method is strange to them.

This is because intelligent people are able to adapt easily as Donna F. Hammett writes, intelligent people adapt by "showing what can be done regardless of the complications or restrictions placed upon them."

13. You learnt how to play a musical instrument


According to a new study from Boston Children’s Hospital, people who learnt how to play musical instruments especially before the age of seven had an improved cognitive function and academic performance.

14. You pass examinations easily


What point are you making when you claim to be smart, yet you fail most of your exams?😂
Intelligent people pass examinations with an effort that can be termed 'little' when compared to that of an average person.
