Android 4.2 tip: How to clear all app caches at once in

clear app cache android 4 2 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

Android 4.2 certainly brought with it some awesome new features that have been getting lots of attention, like multiple user accounts and quick settings. However, sometimes it’s the little things that make me smile and realize that Google really is thinking things through and listening to power users. One of those little things happens to be the ability to clear all app caches at once.

To do so, simply navigate to your settings menu and select Storage Cached data. You’ll then be presented with an option to clear all of your apps’ cached data.

While my ASUS Nexus 7 has a roomy 32GB to play around with, this might be especially helpful for power users who opted to get the 8GB version while it was still available. With that amount of storage, anything can help.

Like I said before – this isn’t a huge new feature, and it hasn’t really gotten much if any coverage. But sometimes, it’s the little things in life.
