Remember when Nokia used to rule the smartphone industry with its Symbian smartphones? Well, that is a thing of the past because Google is now the world’s most popular operating system. What made Symbian smartphones successful was the fact that they were the first ones to give people access to apps. Well, Google saw that and decided to create the Play Store which became the biggest hub of apps, games and services for Android fans. With that said, today we will show you how to become a Play Store power user by presenting the top three tips & tricks for it.
The Best Tips & Tricks for the Google Play Store
- How to Install Apps in Bulk
If you recently purchased a new Android powered smartphone and want to re-download your favorite apps and games, then you should be pleased to know that there is a trick to doing this in bulk. Head over to the Play Store app and tap on the menu button, now select the “My apps & games” option and then switch over to “Library”. All that is left now is to tap on the “Install” button next to the apps.
- Annoying Apps
Do you have an app that gets so many updates that it has become annoying? Well, this can be entirely avoided by disabling auto-updates for that specific app only. This can be done by accessing the app’s page in the Play Store, head over to the menu and then uncheck the “Auto-update” option.
- Get Early Access to Apps
If there is an app or game that you really like but the developers are not planning to release it too soon, then you should know that you can still access that app or game by enlisting in the “early access” program. However, keep in mind that the app or game is going to be in beta and it might have bugs.
