Question Delete old application information

I posted this on XDA-Developers, asking if there was already an application for this..

Quote:
Is there any application to delete old application data if an app is no longer installed?

My SD card is so cluttered because I tend to download lots of apps then uninstall them after a while.

Thanks

Sent from my Motorola Defy (MB525) using XDA Premium, running CM9 by Epsylon3.
Would it be possible for this to be developed?

Perhaps with a checkbox for applications if you want to delete their SD card data.

Thanks

Sorry for first post application request.. I only just found these forums by searching android application request.

I have this problem too, and I think there are many others out there looking for such an app. I'm a beginning developer and I have an idea about how such an app would work. I think I'll try it

Good luck! I expect it will be well downloaded.

I tried SD-Maid, but it didn't delete the folders, nor the contents of old data..

Actually it's quite impossible to do, there are no ways to tell what each app does unless the user links each app with it's folder (which is pointless and worse than deleting those folders manually).
