    I'm not sure if I have an extremely outdated phone (Xperia J) or I've recently downloaded a dodgy 'update', but recently for about a week now my apps are crashing on me or not opening at all. A good example of this is video apps, apps such as Youtube will not play videos whatsoever but would buffer and suggest to tap the screen because of a 'faulty server'.

    Now recently I have noticed apps I use Twitter, Instagram, Twitch etc. will crash with a waiting period of roughly a minute where it will then go on to say there's a "problem" and suggests I could continue or wait.

    *Any advice in regards to any of the issues expressed would be appreciated.

    Welcome to Android Central! Try booting into Safe Mode, which temporarily disables all 3rd party apps. On most Android devices, while powered on, press and hold Power until the Power Off menu appears. Press and hold the Power Off selection until the Safe Mode prompt appears. Tap OK.

    If the problem disappears in Safe Mode, then something you installed is causing the problem. You may have to uninstall apps one by one until the problem disappears. If the problem persists in Safe Mode, then it's more likely to be a hardware or firmware problem.
