Android Fix: “Unfortunately app has stopped error”

Unfortunately app has stoppedI came across a weird error when I started Vine & MusicFX apps on my android. When I opened Vine, it ran for a few seconds and then popped a message “Unfortunately Vine has stopped error” (a sample of this symptom can be seen in the image given). Then I tried to solve this problem by clearing its cache and data from app settings which seemed to work for  “app could not be downloaded” error but it didn’t work for the “app has stopped error” in Vine. Few apps in which this error appears are Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Hangout, Inbuilt apps like Setting, Gallery, Clock, Internet, Google Play Store. Wiping cache and data worked for me and I was able to run Vine perfectly.  You can try these methods to solve the issue:

Methods to fix: Unfortunately, the app has stopped error

Method 1:

Check if there is a new update for your app in the Google Play Store and install the app.

Method 2:

Uninstall and reinstall the app.

Method 3:

Go to Manage apps >> Select “All” tab >> Select your app (or process) that has the error >> Clear cache and data. Rerun the app. If it doesn’t work try steps below.

Method 4:

After following method 3, If you have a custom recovery, Clockworkmod, go to recovery and wipe cache and dalvik cache, reboot and run the app. If your phone is not rooted (in which case the Clockworkmod won’t work), switch off your phone first. Then, press and hold the Power+Volume down button at the same time, until you see the recovery mode of your phone, which starts with an Android robot symbol. You can follow the mentioned process to wipe your cache then.

One major reason for this error to occur in your device may be the unavailability of RAM. It means, the best idea would be to control the multitasking only to that extent which your device supports, and closing unwanted apps frequently.
