Android phoneIf you’ve noticed that Instagram on your Android handset has been unusually sluggish lately, you’re not alone. Many of us have noted an unfortunate combination of slower feed load times and an uptick in overall bugginess. Quitting and restarting occasionally fixes the problem, but there’s a far easier way to deal with a misbehaving app.

Just go into Settings > Apps, and then clear the cache. Voila, the app should be back to 100 percent.

Of course this doesn’t just apply to Instagram. Clearing cached data for any Android app should be your first course of action when problems arise. This will wipe out the temporary files that may be responsible for the trouble, and it can also have the added benefit of saving space on your handset.

If overall performance on your phone is slowing, there’s even a way to clear all cached app data at once on Android 4.2 and up. Go to Settings > Storage > Cached Data. This will give you the option to erase all your app’s saved data. It’s not something you’ll want to do regularly — in many cases, you’ll have to login to your apps again, and some may even load slower for a time — but as a once-a-year routine, it certainly can’t hurt. Think of it as clearing out the cobwebs in the back corners of your handset’s storage spaces.
