Question 7:      My Atorcom App is running very slow

Answer 1: 

If your phone does not have sufficient internal memory, then the performance of your phone and the Atorcom App may be adversely affected.  Your phone may not have sufficient internal memory if it has too many Apps downloaded on it or too many Apps opened in the background.

 

Ensure that:

 

  1. you have closed off the Apps which you do not need so that they are not running in the background in your phone and draining your processing capacity.
