Running out of free storage is next to the battery one of the problems that many users have to deal with every day. We cannot have all the applications, games, and files that we would like, so we always have to have very good storage management to avoid problems.
When our Android device already has very little free storage, it no longer allows us to install more applications and if the warning is skipped many applications will stop working correctly since synchronization will be deactivated, with which we can stop receiving messages, SMS and other notices until that we do a cleaning to free up space.
For our device to work normally we have to do the cleaning in the storage, and for this, you will only have to follow the following tricks and tips:
First of all, it is to clear the cached data of all installed applications and games. As of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, you can delete the cache data from the system settings, from Settings> Storage and by clicking on Cached data. If we have an older version of Android we can resort to applications like Clean Master or CCleaner.
The next step to free internal memory is to enter the Downloads application and delete all those files that we will no longer need.
Clean photos, videos, music, and other files
Another step, but more expensive, is to do general cleaning, deleting all those photos, videos, music, and files from applications like WhatsApp that we are not interested in keeping in storage. We can do the cleaning from a file explorer or from the applications themselves.
Upload your photos, videos, music, and files to the cloud
It is advisable to always have a backup of all our files in the cloud so that you do not have it on the device. To save photos and videos in the cloud we have different options such as Google Photos or Flickr, and to save files in general we have Google Drive, OneDrive, or Dropbox.
Delete backed up photos and videos
If we are keeping a backup of our photos and videos in the cloud, we can delete their copy on the device. For example, in Google Photos it has the Free up space option that suddenly removes all our backed up photos and videos from internal storage.
Clear app data Be careful!
Another option to free up storage is to erase the data of the applications, but with this step, we have to be very careful since we do not have to do it in all the applications. This step deletes everything from the application, leaving it as newly installed, deleting our data, accounts, games, etc ... The data is deleted from the application information.
Move apps to microSD card
If your device has a microSD you can see if your version of Android allows you to move the applications to the microSD. To do this, go to Settings> Storage> Applications, click on an application, and see its option to Change the type of storage. If it lets you choose the microSD.
The last step to freeing up storage is to uninstall the applications that we no longer use. To do this, see if your application launcher or the settings of your device allow you to sort the applications by use to see which are the applications that have been used a lot without using them. If not, go through your app drawer one by one to eliminate those that you know you won't need.
Having Android on TV is becoming more common since Android TV is found on a large range of televisions, also on HDMI players. Of course, you do not always have access to DTT channels, especially regional channels; a lack that is fixed with an app like TDT Channels. This application offers a huge number of TV and radio channels, all adapted to Android TV.
Despite the fact that Android TV is an operating system adapted to televisions, this does not imply that all open access DTT channels are seen on televisions equipped with said system. It may be the case that you want to watch a channel from another region, for example; or one that does not finish tuning well with your antenna. Also, players like the Android TV lack a television tuner; Hence, the only way to watch TV, at least in what we understand by this concept, is with dedicated applications. And one of those applications is DTT Channels: the app is complete, works great, and is perfectly adapted to Android TV.
All TV channels in one app
TDT Channels is an application for Android that we have talked about on occasion. It is developed by Android TV based on open-source software. And recently he untied the development of the Open Source version to Android TV, both for 'normal' Android devices and for the Android TV version. Precisely, TDT Channels has been updated these days to offer notable improvements, especially for the television version.
As we said, and despite the fact that Android TV is for TVs, this does not imply that the operating system offers a native television tuner since this only occurs on Smart TVs. Therefore, having an application that offers access to all DTT, both at the state level and by communities and regions, is always a good idea. Not only that, but TDT Channels also offers radio stations, but it is also a complete multimedia combo.
The operation is as expected: just search for a channel from the huge list of them included so you can play it with a couple of 'clicks, on your remote control. Of course, TDT Channels is an app that is not found in Google Play, so its installation is somewhat more cumbersome than usual. You can have it installed on your Android TV as follows:
- Since it is necessary to fight with APK files on the TV, it is recommended to use a file manager. Our recommendation is TV File Commander, Android TV.
- Download the latest DTT Channels file Android TV and upload it to your Google Drive. The best place is the root folder.
- Access the newly installed file manager on your Android TV and go to the Drive section. Sign in with your Google account.
- Enter Google Drive, look for the DTT Channels file, and click on it: your Android TV will install it as an APK is installed on your mobile.
The use of DTT Channels on Android TV is intuitive: you have the list of TV channels and the list of radios, for both, you can move with the remote control. In addition, the application allows you to save channels and stations as favorites for direct access (it is worth taking some time). You also have the option of filtering the channels by category and by Autonomous Communities: in this way you can access broadcasts that are not available in your territory.
TDT Channels does not offer pay channels since all included channels are freely accessible. The app collects and updates all the links with which the different television channels broadcast on the Internet, it does not have ads and it is free.
