App's keep crashing and closing mid use

When on games, Facebook, Twitter etc. I'll he part way through doing something and then everything stops and the whole app randomly closes for no reason, it does it every day, multiple times a day and it's so frustrating. I've tried freeing up memory and closing all other tasks being run but it seems to make no difference what so ever, I'm so close to throwing my phone at a wall, someone please explain how I could fix this. Thank you in advance Slightly smiling Face
