Learn how to hide, show, uninstall, and clear cache for apps on the Motorola Moto X.

Clear app

Clear app cache and data

Clearing cache or data from an app can fix some software problems. If you clear data, any data stored in that app is lost, such as settings, login information, and saved games. If you don't want to clear the data, try just clearing cache first. If you still experience problems, then clear data too.

To clear the cache and data for an app, follow these steps:

  1. From the Apps menu, touch and hold the app you want to clear cache until it vibrates.
  2. Drag the icon to App info.
  3. Touch Clear Cache.

Uninstall app

To uninstall third-party apps, follow these steps:

  1. From the Apps menu, touch and hold the app you want to clear cache until it vibrates.
  2. Drag the icon to Uninstall.
  3. Tap Ok to confirm
