Starting from today, some apps on my phone just kept crashing. At first it was mostly Google-related apps, and since I've had issues with Google Play services crashing before, I took the usual route of deleting app data and uninstalling updates. However, the issues persisted, and spread to other apps. Google kept crashing, the stock e-mail app kept crashing,my third party SMS app kept crashing... Some apps crash when I open them, some don't. For some the problem is solved by uninstalling and reinstalling them, for some it isn't. Google-based apps like YouTube and Play Store work fine, but others like Chrome don't. I can't seem to find a single "triggering" event that could have started this, apart from maybe some background update. I am running Android 8.1.0 on a Samsung Galaxy J7(2016).
Is there any way to solve this ?
EDIT : I found the common factor between all those apps : they all store data on my SD card, which is still accessible but awfully slow. I'm guessing this is the root of the issue. However, I didn't specifically chose for those apps to be stored on the SD card, it seems Android automatically offloaded data there, and I don't know how to reverse it.
