Is it better to Uninstall and Reinstall a mobile app than updating the existing one??

in Proof of Brain6 months ago

Few hours ago, I had a notification on my mobile screen about updating some of my existing mobile application. Those apps that are being readily available to use at different ocassion.

I noticed that, my mobile memory is also gradually exhausting due to these mobile apps. All of them are occupying space of more than 100MB.

I remember correctly, that while installing these apps none of them were above 50MB, however after updating them at regular intervals, each of them has captured my mobile memory.

All of us like to keep our mobile up-to-date. The moment we see the update notification about the mobile application, we quickly press the update button. Gradually we end up exhausting our internal phone memory. Every time we update the phone, the application get more heavier in size than the size of original app.

This made me to think, is it always necessary to update our mobile apps?? Rather, we should Uninstall the same and re-install the original app. It may save our phone memory, which can further be used to store other important things like of photographs or video or something else.

I am not a tech savvy to understand the complication of these digital equipment. I honestly need some serious advice to make things fruitful and save my precious phone memory. Allow me some great insight , whether to update or to reinstall our mobile apps. ??


Namaste @steemflow


whether to update or to reinstall our mobile apps. ??

Honestly the points you've given is just enough to say it's better to uninstall and install. I actually noticed the same thing on my phone but never knew what was eating up space. You've really made it clear to me from your explanations here and I've gotten an idea on how to deal with it now.

I never use auto-update option that sure reduse the storage. I update all my application manulayy and remove most of the application which are not used that frequently.
I install them when I need.

Its not about auto update, even if you update them manually, it will cover your memory keep increasing with each update...

Uninstall and update is the best option in my opinion bade bhai.
I do that mostly and i prefer that is the best

The crux is you still need to remember all id and passwords of differrnt apps 😁

You possibly can't log in any app by Gmail without a password you used in the sign up maybe unless you wanna create a new password.
