    Help Slider isn't working like it used to

    Hi everybody. My slider has seen hard use for the last 2 years and seems to be slow and buggy now. Is there a way to restore it to its former glory? On a PC I would just format and reinstall windows, but on a phone I'm not so sure. My phone is completely stock. Is a factory reset the answer? Thanks.
