    Question My apps keep crashing (many different ones)

    I searched around a bit, but the threads I saw were related to a single app crashing or specific market apps.

    My problem involves a lot of different apps. I've had this phone for less than a month, and the only apps I've downloaded are a few highly rated and popular games from the Play Store.

    It seems once or twice a day, I'll go to start an app and it'll give me the "app crashed" screen with the "Force Close/Report" buttons. Often times it involves games, but it sometimes also happens with apps that came with the phone or processes that I assume are running in the background, because I won't even have anything open and it'll come up with "Verizonblahblah has crashed". (Sorry I can't recall exactly what Verizon process this was, I'll have to write it down next time it happens).
    It happens with the Google Framework app sometimes, when I'm just trying to open a Google search.

    This continues until I restart the phone, and then everything is fine.

    Also once every couple days or so it will tell me that my swipe password is incorrect and won't let me into the phone until I restart it.

    Should I try resetting to factory settings? How do I do this? Should I remove my SD card first to save the info that is stored on it?
    Or does this sound more like a hardware issue?


    Thank you in advance

    You can leave your SD card in but make sure that you DO NOT erase it as well. There will be a box to check if you want to wipe the card as well. Or you could unmount the card and reset.

    I feel like this is going to be a stupid question... but how do I do that?

    After searching a bit, I found a few sites saying to follow steps like this:
    From the home screen, click the MENU button
    Click on SETTINGS
    Select the SD & Phone Storage option
    Click on Factory data reset located at the bottom

    But I do not see any "Factory data reset" option in my SD Card & Phone Storage settings...

    Well, I did that and it worked fine for a good 24+ hours but now I have apps crashing again. Not as bad as before, though.

    For instance, before if I left an app running (say Tiny Tower or something) and came back to it later it would almost always crash on me until I restarted my phone. That doesn't seem to be a problem right now.

    But earlier, I had Google Maps crash when I didn't even have it open. It came up with the "Google Maps crashed" screen like 4 times in 4 minutes and then stopped. My Verizon Data also crashed on me.
    Oh, and it (once so far) did the thing where it told me my password was incorrect until I restarted the phone.


    I did notice that when I did the factory restore, it re-downloaded (is that even the right word?) some of my games for me automatically. I'm not sure if this is part of the issue or how to make it not do that.

    Kind of curious if maybe this is a hardware issue at this point.

    Does anyone have any other recommendations, or should I head to the Verizon store?

    I have the same problem with various apps. They freeze and then close down and display the report message. My phone is only 2 weeks old. Did you manage to find a solution?

    If you have jellybean, it is possible that some of those apps are not updated to work with jb yet. Otherwise it's just the app. E-mail the developer.

    Go into ur app store and make sure all apps are up to date. If they re- downloaded, That's what they were doing, updating. Good luck.

    If you don`t have the latest apps to sd app, get it from the market, its free, some apps must be installed on the phone, NOT the sd card to work right, run the
    apps to sd program, it will inform which apps can be moved, & which should be installed on phone only.

    Google Wallet is considered to be a system file, all system files load into internal storage, phone only, & are not displayed in the app tray, download
    apps to sd from the playstore, its free, move the moveable apps to sd card, & the others to the phone, it`ll inform which go where, as some apps
    cause conflicts when stored in wrong place, check in settings, under applications, storage, you can see where the apps are stored.

    I have a samsung SCH-R910 4G Android and everytime an app is finished downloading on my phone it either says "Bad manifest", "package not signed correctly" OR

    when I try to open the app, my screen turns black and my phones vibrates. I've tried factory reset and turning my phone on/off.

    Any idea what could be the problem??

    LoLoLoLoLo... That is built in in Google Play and cannot be uninstalled... But leave it alone if you do not need it, or don't use Play Market again... ;-)

    Just to tell, I installed latest Minecraft, but it opened and told me that Minecraft has crashed... And my android is Samsung Galaxy Mini 2, not a fast one :-(

    I dream about Nexus 4 or 5... Must have android with KitKat.

    Hey fella,
    I herd that Sony would survive under water, but anything else is blackmart... Or am I just telling stupidies?

    You should install to your PC a specific hardware for your precious (am I right?) and move your data to PC. After that see if you have a unknown app installed (what you guys call a virus) and uninstall it if you can... Or install an antivirus on your phone, if you can...
    Or go to servicer...

    I really would buy to myself Nexus 5 or 4... :-)

    I don't know if this works for all phones but this is a way to reset the cache of the phone without any additional apps or having to root power off the phone turn it back on while it booting up hold do b the volume up or down button. It will boot in safe mode when it's done booting restart the phone and let it start normally. I don't know if this works for all android phones.
