As a note, uninstalling apps can help you to fix error or clean up your storage, but you'd better read the description and the review of an app first before installing it into your phone because it'll help you to make sure that the app has a feature you're looking for to prevent you installing an unused app and also to make sure that the app has a good review to prevent you installing an app that might cause errors on your phone.
