If your Android device is freezing or getting slower and your battery is draining faster than usual, don’t blame it on the device – its the apps you installed  – at least that’s according to a study carried out by Avast. They have compiled a list of apps you should really watchout for and they are likely to be some of your favourites, but you wouldn’t want to use them for long without having a power bank around.

A MUFC fan with serious love for gadgets and all things tech. Not the movie-loving type, more like the kinda guy you'll see with a PS4 controller. I like good music - any type, as long as it sounds good. Oh and I'm a very picky eater too. Apart from science and tech, I follow all kinda stuff in politics, sports, business and entrepreneurship.
