Clear app cache and data

Clearing cache or data from an app can fix some software problems. If you clear data, any data stored in that app is lost, such as settings, login information, and saved games. If you don't want to clear the data, try just clearing cache first. If you still experience problems, then clear data too.

 

To clear the cache and data for an app, follow these steps:

 

  1. From the Home screen, press Menu.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Applications.
  4. Touch Manage Applications.
  5. Verify the All tab is selected.
