Apps keep closing on Samsung smartphone

Postby Parilla » Mon Oct 19, 2020 2:32 pm

Since just over a week ago, when I try to open Gmail, Google Search and some others, they flash open and then close at once. A message appears eg " Gmail keeps closing - Send feedback", and when you try, that keeps closing. Any idea what might be going on anyone please. and what can I do to rectify.

I am getting it on iPhone when reading news papers. With the news at moment probably not a bad thing. I wondered if it could it be anything to do with flash coming to the end of its life.

This kept happening on my ageing Asus tablet. The only way I could resolve it was with a factory reset. I have not had a problem since.

Have you cleared the cache from the app. If its a newish phone you could clear the data aswell.you then would have to reinstall the updates for the app via the play store. If its old you could be struggling for space and ram and its fore closing because of it

Do you move apps from internal storage to your SD card?
Some apps will only run correctly from internal storage.

Thanks for the suggestions folks. Got it sorted, had to resort to a factory reset.
