Clear the Cache for the Phone or Tablet's Apps

On Android phones, the app cache is used to temporarily store frequently used data. Caching data prevents unnecessary re-downloading of common items like images, which allows for faster loading and less cellular data usage. On occasion, cached data can cause problems within an app and will need to be cleared.
