The Google Play store makes installing applications on your Android phone so fast and easy that you tend to clutter up the system with lots of apps that you never use. Using the uninstaller that came with the phone is simple but usually does not remove all the files involved. Luckily there are a number of third-party Android apps available that can return your phone to running as smoothly as it did when you first bought it – chiefly by uninstalling your Android apps and removing all their associated files from your phone. They do not, however, remove the apps that the manufacturer pre-installs on your phone.
Free up space on your Android phone and reduce battery usage with one of the following free uninstaller apps and for a clean, decluttered device with lots of usable disk space.

Hibernate the apps you’re not using and save resources when you Greenify

Greenify will analyze all your apps and list all those running in the background. To hibernate an app, tap it and hit the check button, and click through the confirmation screens.
