We all know how useful the Google Store is if you happen to own an Android device. Almost anything that you need from data managing apps to games, you can find it there, but you’ll have to buy it.

Here are some tips that will help you use the Google Play store more efficiently.

App management

There’s a panel on Google Play Store entitled My Apps and Games where you can see a list of the apps you’ve downloaded so far and if you need to update them. If you need to update them, all you have to do is to choose the Update all option. If you want to know what apps used to be on your device, you can find that out by going to the All section.

Refunds from Google Play store

This is a very sneaky trick for testing the apps to see if they suit you. The thing is that you can buy an app and then ask for a refund within two hours of the purchase. This gives you enough time to try and see if the app is good for you. The refund option will appear right after purchasing an app along with the option to either install it open it.

Parental locks on Google Play

We think most parent have this problem: their children sometimes download unwanted or dangerous apps like games with violent content or dating apps that give out the device’s location. You can solve this by putting a parental lock on the Google Play Store. In order to do this, you have to go to the Settings menu and hit the the Parental controls slider to On. The device will then ask you to enter a PIN code and that’s it! Now you can sort which types of apps you believe are ok to download and which ones aren’t.
