Tips for managing storage on your mobile device

In this day of technological abundance, we often find ourselves spending more time filling up our mobile devices with pictures, documents, music and videos. I initially imported the OTG flash drives to help people with managing the space on their devices, but I realise that I was addressing the problem, not actually providing a solution.

Here are my top tips for managing space on your device:

  1. Photos

We all love to document every single moment of our lives, and oftentimes it takes more than one picture to find the right one. Sometimes we end up with a gallery of blurry or photo-bombed pictures which clog up the storage. I suggest, if not at the time, once a week, go through your gallery and delete the images you will never use.


I, for one, very rarely listen to a whole album. I usually have a few different songs that I listen to, on repeat, until I am sick of it. Two things: only load the songs you want to listen to and once you’ve reached the point of “Ugh, I don’t want to listen to this anymore” delete them


  1. Install Google Drive

Internet giant, Google Inc “focuses on on improving the ways people connect with information” (Forbes Most Valuable Brands article). While Cloud storage is not everyone’s cup of tea, it is a convenient way to manage your documents. Google Drive comes pre-installed on most Android phones. If you don’t have it, go to the Play Store (on Android devices) or the iOS App Store (for Apple devices).

In my next post, I will discuss how to set up a Google account in order to access this storage marvel and how to use it effectively. Can’t wait? Pop me an email, or comment below.
