A ton of apps are available on the Play Store and most of them are offered as a free download. It’s no secret that we often tend to download various apps on our Android devices without wondering about their use case. Then over a period of time, such apps tend to occupy a considerable amount of space on our smartphones. This can also result in a slowdown and hence it’s best to get rid of such unused apps. Though you can easily remove unwanted applications from your Android device. However, if there are numerous apps accumulated over time that you wish to remove then it could be a tedious job.
That’s because you can uninstall or delete only one app at a time on Android. Though there are certain third-party apps available that let you bulk uninstall multiple apps at once. Additionally, there are few custom UIs like Asus’ ZenUI and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI that integrate an option to batch uninstall apps. To our surprise, Google has recently added a new storage management option in the Play Store. This new feature shows used storage space and remaining space as well. That’s not all, it also lists all the user-installed apps on the device along with their size.
By default, the listed apps are sorted on the basis of their usage such that the least used apps are shown at the top. Moreover, users can sort the apps by size, data usage, or alphabetically. One noteworthy thing is that you can select multiple apps and uninstall them in one go. This way you can free up space quickly rather than manually uninstalling every app.
