We are living in a digital age where a transition is going on from PC to mobile and with that number of mobile apps keep on growing and smartphones come into the picture. Every smartphone user install number of apps on its device be it Android, iOS or Windows OS; some are worthy and some are not. Apps stores data, cache and other files on your device, say you are using an Android device and then this junk slows your Android device.

There are so many cleaner apps available on Play Store for boosting your Android device’s speed, removing junk but today we have chosen “The Cleaner App” for this purpose. We used this app for a while and found it a lot effective.

#3 Sorting out stored apps

One of the best feature of The Cleaner app is that it allows you to view all info like apps usage, install date, sorting apps alphabetically, storage usage, call permissions, SMS permissions, contacts permissions, location permissions and camera permissions.

You can view every info in the detailed manner and then can uninstall any app from this section. It will help you to keep a check on which apps you use the most so that you can uninstall the not so required apps which are eating up storage as well as memory on your Android device.

#4 Cleaning memory from Calls/Conversations

This section will help you to see all the calls/SMS records from one place and you can delete the desired ones. Piling up more number of call logs and SMS also eat up memory on your Android device.

The Cleaner app gives a good fight to other similar popular apps in the same category like Clean Master & CCleaner but it surely has a light-responsive-fast UI than those apps. In-app ads can be irritating for many users. We are expecting more number of free themes from the app developers in the future.

Smart control over apps stored in the device is a big merit for the app. We were not able to test The Cleaner app on a rooted Android device to see the amount of time it stops an app from restarting while having root access.

If you are looking for a cleaning app for your Android device then The Cleaner app is a worth try. If you are using or have already used The Cleaner app, let us know you review of it. Drop your comments below.
