The slowing down or closing installed applications It is a problem common to all operating systems, whatever their type, whether they are desktop systems such as Windows or MacOS; mobile systems such as Android or iOS or native to televisions and multimedia devices such as Amazon Fire OS.
You install an app and use it normally for months, but suddenly, one day, stop working properly or it just closes randomly and unexpectedly when you try to use it, leaving you with the content half-viewed.
With the trick that we are going to tell youyou can easily solve this problem with the apps you have installed on your Amazon Fire TV Stick, or on any other Amazon device with this operating system.
As a general rule, these issues do not appear in the native apps that Amazon included as part of the system, but they can appear in third-party apps that are installed from the app store.
Problems with Fire TV apps now have a solution
Many of the problems appear after updates or after a long period of use and are due to a probable error during the writing of the app’s cached data. This makes this not work properly slowing down each step a lot since you are working with unoptimized or directly corrupted data.
Random app crashes or other similar issues are also common symptoms that something is wrong with that app, so it will need some attention to fix the problem.
Fortunately, Amazon has provided a mechanism that allows you to wipe the slate clean on this cache data used by apps while they are running, so that all these problems with the performance of the apps can be solved from third parties without the need to reinstall it.
Trick to unlock your Fire TV
To fix this issue with apps on your Amazon FireTVall you have to do is take the remote control of your device and access the main screen of your Amazon device.
From there, scroll right to the gear icon to access the options Setting.
In the menu that appears, go to the section apps and choose the option Manage installed apps where a list will appear with all the apps you have installed on your device. Select the app that is not working correctly to access the App Details screen.
In the list of options that appears in this window, select the options of clear cache and Delete data. This will remove any corrupted data the app was working with and generate new optimized logs when you open it next time. After this, you can go back to the main menu and check if the trick has done its job and the app works normally.
It is possible that, by clearing the data of the app, need to log in again in the service, or what late a little longer than usual to start as you will be creating the new cache data from scratch.
