A smartphone makes you more productive because there are so many applications available. However, if you try to manage each app separately you would need to open and close each one to view the information. Thus, using an app manager makes it easier to uninstall, move, maintain and view information.
In most app stores, an app manager falls into the tool category and can be called an ‘app 2 SD’ or ‘move 2 SD’ or ‘move app’. The home screen for the manager organises apps into screens based on movable applications, applications on the phone (not movable) and applications already on the SD card. Movable applications are those applications that you can move back and forth between the phone’s internal storage and external SD card storage. The SD card screen shows those that are currently stored on your SD cards so if you switch cards then you would no longer have access to them. The ‘phone only’ screen shows all apps stored on your phone. The names for the screens or tabs will vary based on the tool that you choose. For each screen or tab you can find out the number of apps installed, the total storage space provided and the amount of storage space available. The tool also notifies you when installed applications can be moved, and automatically updates your apps.
Each app that you download comes with basic information such as storage size and permissions needed. Those with small storage size can be stored in the phone’s internal storage. Knowing the size for each at a glance allows you to determine which ones you should keep on the phone or use the tool to move it to external storage. The app manager also list the permissions needed such as to access storage, network communication, personal information. This allows you to determine if you want to allow the application to have various permissions. If you are not satisfied then you can uninstall it from the tool.
There are times when an application is not working properly and you want to remove it from your phone. The tool allows you to force a stop, clear data, move or uninstall the app. This makes it easier to manage them from one central location. Whenever you make changes to your applications then it updates the list so you can see how it affects your storage size too.
Using apps are great because they help you to accomplish various tasks and they can be downloaded at your convenience. Using an app manager makes it easier for you to view information and manage them all from one tool. This saves time and energy from maintaining each one separately.
