Default Do Uninstaller Apps delete the app data as well?

Do uninstaller apps such as...

-quick uninstaller
-easy uninstaller
-instant uninstaller
-fast uninstaller

...auto clear the data and cache of the application they are uninstalling?

I usually press "clear data" and "clear cache" before I uninstall an app when I use androids application manager.

Wondering if any/all/no third party uninstall apps do this as I would like to use one when I occasionally do a mass cleaning.

It deletes everything associated with the app, unless there is an empty folder in your sd card for that app.

To answer your question, if you uninstall from 3rd party or even stock un installer, everything for that app including data is gone.

Alright thanks.

I've 'heard' locally and read online that all should be cleared before uninstall in the past.

But now just read another post to verify not necessary.
And another that said there were 'conflicting' comments on it.

Was is older versions of Android that this had to be done manually?

I've been an android user since the eclair days (android 2.1) and I've never had a problem with not un installing all files associated with that app.

I don't believe it's necessary either to clear data/cache before uninstall. Most the only thing that will be left over is an empty folder on your sd card. Normally reason being if you moved that app to sd or it needed additional data to be downloaded to sd card.
