Piriform, the company responsible for the popular PC utility CCleaner, has today announced that CCleaner for Android is now out of Beta and available to download for free.

 

Since the Beta was released, more features have been added and the performance has been improved. We love the fact that as well as being completely free, the app is also advert free, a privilege which you normally have to pay extra for on most apps.

CCleaner for Android will ensure that your Android device stays clean by tidying up your browser history, download folders, call logs and SMS messages as well as giving you the option to remove all the unnecessary or un-used applications so that you can free up more memory space for you to use. One really great feature is the Monitor System, which enables you to keep track of your CPU, RAM, storage space and battery levels so that you can ensure that your Android device is in tip top condition.

 

You can download CCleaner for Android now from the Google Play Store.

I wonder if this offer any benefit over doing things manually... I mean adding an APP just to remove other APP info, is redudant a bit. I can see how in windows it is necessary since CCleaner has 1000x options for windows. For android? not so much.

Yeah, unfortunately, (for me anyway) my sd card is a mess. Google need to implement a unified folder hierarchy to stop developers creating random folders all the time.

Well of course, every OS/App has some form of Cache/Temp files, it's how the OS handles or deals with it which is the problem.

Yup, just like Windows.  Mostly it is files that are edited/saved in the installation folders that are not created by the program. 

 

Anyway, useless app since it really is not that big of a problem.

So not that big problems don't need solutions at all (presumably as long as there are bigger problems), is what you're saying?

Not that CC actually ever solves anything, Windows or now Android, but the way you say doesn't seem right.

Piriform is a terrbile company and their "support" forums are garbage. Seen them ban users for providing fixes and then the user asks months later why the fix wasn't implemented. I stopped going there cause of how they treat community members who tried to help.

Depends on what you mean by "just like Windows". When uninstalling WinRT apps, for example, all the junk is also removed.
