    Is it mandatory to download the updates provided for the apps everytime when it shows up in the notification? Will it not consume more memory?

    Every week am getting one or the other notification for updating the apps, Is this mandatory to do it? Will it not consume more internal memory?

    Hello Friend,

    It is not at all mandatory to download the updates of apps on Android.However I would still recommend you to get the updates as it will provide you the latest and better features whcih could help your phone work even efficiently and it will also give you a better Android experience.Yes during downloading battery consumption would be more but after that it won't matter a lot.In order to save your battery you can follow methoda like using static wallpapers,turning off Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/GPS/Location Features and killing tasks running in background.

    Hope It Helps!

    Thanks and Visit Again.

    like a better performance , solve issued according users comment etc...
    By updating you can get better performance..
    It will consume a slight more memory to update or replace files of older version..

    hello friend
    this is very normal when you used to download any apps whatever new change or any new update it is provided to you so you can get better service for that particular app each update comes with somthing new so if you will upadte everytime your downloaded apps becomes more better then previous but ya it consumes memory
    its depend upon your need if particular app is very much important for you so do it but keep this in mind it will surely consume memory
    so your choice

    Dear friend,
    It is a fact that when new updates launched you have to update apps everytime when it shows up in the notifications because these updates makes all your services up to date, each of the updates launched when any changes made for the application and to keep them latest and harm free. When you got any update your application goes more better then the previous version of the appropriate version. It is a truth that an update might consume more space then it's previous version. This is depend on you to update your app or not and if you update them then it is very sure that it consume more space then before.


    Thanks.........

    Apps are to be updated if you want to have new features into your phone. These updates are sometimes important and sometimes not. Apps need to be updated to make it more compatible with the existing hardware requirements. These updates take some extra memory as they add additional functions to the existing app.

    No it is really not mandatory as it is upto you to get it or not

    however the updates will help you to use your device more efficiently and get the desired things you want

    they may be somewhat important and somewhat not

    Yes,it is important to download the updates.Updates provides more features as well as solve the bug fix problem.
    Also improve the quality of the app.There are some apps which consume space when they get updates like Google Map,Google search,Gmail & Voice Search.But they consume space only once then never.most of the apps don't consume space.

    Please do not update apps blindly...


    Read the changes and install the update only if you feel it'll make your experience with app better... Read the what's new list.




    The updates consume considerable amount of
    space...

    Update the app if the update fixes bugs and helps in reducing crashes. Also update only those apps that you use, if you
    don't use Voice search then do not update it...

    Hello

    No its not mandatory for you to download each and every update. BUt saying that if you want to be updated all the time and you want to experiencee all the new features of the app then you should update.

    And it wont take extra space. It will replace the application but will save all the settings.

    whatever update comes it brings bug fixex, makes the app faster etc. For games like angry birds whenever a update come that means you have new episodes to play with.

    Thanks and do keep updating
