Delete bad apps to fix crashing problem

It’s common that bad third-party apps will some time cause the Galaxy S6 to crash. It’s suggested to first read reviews of the problematic app in the Google Play Store to see if others are dealing with the same problems. Since Samsung can’t fix the stability of third-party apps so it is down to the developer to improve their app. If the app hasn’t been fixed after some time, it’s recommended to delete the bad app. Read this guide here on how to remove and delete apps on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
