Apps not working properly on Huawei P30 – How to fix it

Each time you open an app on your phone, the app generates data in different sections of your RAM. If your phone has a small RAM the apps will have difficulty doing this but if you have the Huawei P30 this shouldn’t be an issue. Huawei P30 has a lot of RAM space which enables it to run several applications at a go. Backed up with a HiSilicon Kirin 980 (7 nm) chipset your Huawei P30 should be a four-wheel-drive phone. Even with these features some applications still fail to run smoothly. Below are tips on how you can fix the issue.

Restart Apps

This is probably the first thing you should do in case your apps start acting out weird. Most apps work by generating codes of data at times these codes are generated so fast and may come out wrong. This can lead to the formation of system bugs and if this happens the apps may fail to respond as they should and your device may have trouble running the apps. A simple way to correct this is by quitting the app and then starting it again.

To restart apps go to Settings > Application Manager, next, tap the All tab option. From here choose the app you wish to restart and tap “Force stop”. After this go back to your home menu screen and launch the app again.

Update Apps

Apps that are outdated are not good for your phone and that is why app developers always roll out updates from time to time. Running applications that are out of date can cause your phone to experience problems while opening them. This is because the phone system is designed to run on apps that are compatible with the available system update. Trying to run an old app on a new system that has been recently updated can cause the app not to respond. To get the latest application updates, visit the Google Play Store.

Uninstall, then Install Apps

If updating the app didn’t work then you should try uninstalling the app and then installing it again. This is can be effective especially if the app developed some error the first time you installed it. By uninstalling the app you are deleting the app and all the data associated with it. If everything goes well the error will also be deleted after which you can install the app again. You can uninstall apps by going to the Google Play Store, slide a finger from Left to Right, tap My Apps & Games > Installed. Choose the app you want to uninstall, click “Uninstall”.

Clear App Cache

Apps can be unresponsive if there is too much-cached data within the system. Clearing the cache can also be a good way of fixing app-related issues. The good thing about cache clearing is that it can be done without losing important app data. To clear cache, go to your device Settings > Application Manager, tap the All tab, select the app and tap “Clear Cache.

Uninstall Unauthorized apps

Installing apps from unauthorized sources can also cause apps not to respond. This is mainly because some of those apps are not compatible with your system. To avoid this, only download applications from trusted sources.

Reboot your Phone

If your apps are still unresponsive after trying all the above consider a reboot. This will help in clearing out any error that may have caused the apps to malfunction.

Rebooting your phone will form a clean slate from which the apps will effectively run on after the phone is done rebooting. To reboot your phone simple long press the Power button until your device vibrates. As confirmation that the reboot is successful, you will see a Huawei logo on your screen.
