Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Clear App Cache in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

Some of you may already know that the phone saves the app cache in order to improve the app performance and make it load faster. In a normal state, the app cache shouldn't cause any problem for your phone, but it sometimes can be corrupted and cause the app to misbehave or experience an error, for instance the app crashes, the app is not working properly, the app runs slower than usual, etc. In this case, you need to clear the app cache to fix the problem.


How to clear app cache?
There are two methods that can be used to access the clear cache option: from the apps menu and from the app manager.


Method #1: From the Apps menu
This method can be applied for all apps that are listed in the apps menu. But, as the example, we'll try performing clear cache for Internet app from the apps menu by using the following steps:
  1. In Home screen, tap Apps to go to the apps menu.
  2. Tap and hold the Internet app icon and then drag it to the App info icon located at the top of the screen.
  3. In the App info screen, tap Clear cache button.
  4. The Internet app cache has been cleared.


Method #2: From the App Manager
This method can be applied for all apps even when the app is not listed in the apps menu. But, as the example, we'll try performing clear cache for Download manager by using the following steps:
  1. Swipe down the top of the screen to open up the notification panel and then tap to go to the settings menu.
  2. With the settings menu is displayed in grid view, scroll down to the Applications section and then tap Application manager .
  3. Swipe the screen from the right to the left to access the ALL screen.
  4. Scroll down to find Download manager, and then tap it.
  5. Tap Clear cache button.
  6. The Download manager cache has been cleared.

As a note, if you have cleared the app cache, the app will re-create cache when you re-run the app and it can slow down the app. Once it is completed, the app will work normally.
