What can you do to keep your apps under control?
AVG Answer: First of all, an app that appears on the top of our lists for storage, data or battery drain doesn’t mean they’re ruining the performance of your phone. It is important to weigh the pros and cons of running a good mix of apps that give you the desired results you want.
Do the self-check: To see what’s consuming all of your smartphone’s battery life, storage or mobile data, we’ve developed App Manager, which is a feature within AVG Cleaner for Android. It quietly observes your phone’s performance and gives you an overview of:
- The largest apps on your phone
- Apps you haven’t used in a long time
- Top mobile data-consuming apps
- Top battery-draining apps
