So what’s the easiest way to stay organised on your Android smartphone?

1. Ask Google Assistant

The Google Assistant has become increasingly handy.

Rather than scrolling around for the right app, why not ask it?

Just say, “Hey Google”, followed by “Open (app name)”.

2. Putting frequent apps on the home screen

Putting the apps you use most on the home screen could save endless searching around.

Drag the icon onto the home screen and it’ll be there from now on.

3. Put apps in folders

Folders are an even better way to stay organised.

Chuck the ones you use either by category, how often you use them or any way you like.

4. Search the app on Google Play

If you’re still struggling to find an app, there’s a chance you never installed it at all.

Or maybe you deleted it.

In which case, go to the Google Play Store, search for it, and you’ll soon know for sure.
