Millions of Android applications are being launched everyday on the Android market; this makes it somehow difficult for an android user to keep the installed apps updated at all times. This is one o the reasons Google playstore has the Auto-Apdate over Wifi option only option to help conserve your mobile data bundle.
My advice is for you to update apps as soon as they are available because the old version on your device may contain virus.
It is most certain that the updated version of a mobile application is always better than the previous one. There are different ways to follow when you want to update the android applications on your Galaxy s5.
When a data subscription is not an issue, you may just allow Google play auto-update them for you or you may on the other hand select the desired applications you wish to update.

ð Launch your Google playstore and head over to “settings” by clicking on the gear icon on the top left corner; this opens a menu which will give you so many options. Go to “settings” by scrolling down, click on it and select the option “Auto Update Apps”
Terms to note when your want to update apps on android

MANUALLY ANDROID APPS FROM GOOGLE PLAY STORE
You may sometime not receive an update notification on an app that may have been outdated. When you experience this do not panic, just head over to Google playstore and follow these simple steps and see screenshots:
ð Launch your Google playstore app
ð Click on the menu button at the top left corner of your device’s screen.
ð Now you have to click on my apps & games
ð Select the app you wish to update and click update.
ð You may as well update all if you wish to.
ð Next, is for you to accept any dialogue box that’s crops up
ð After that, all apps will start updating in a queue.
Note: Don’t just rush into updating your apps; it is advisable you read the reviews and description before updating. For instance some updated apps do not function well as the older version. While on the other hand, if you do not read the description you may end up downloading an app that crashes all the time. I believe you may have seen some apps that give you this message whenever you try to launch them: “SORRY YOUR APP HAS STOPPED WORKING”
