    HTC Boost+ app promises to optimize and declutter any smartphone
    In addition to announcing the HTC 10, HTC also announced that its Boost+ application would become available for all Android devices running Android Lollipop or above via the Google Play Store, starting on April 14th.

    The HTC Boost+ App will declutter your phone by clearing up temp files, cached data and app installers as well as what HTC is calling “advertising clutter”, meaning trackers and the like.

    I would certainly not run the RAM management stuff, and cache cleaning is something you should only do if you are getting critically low on space. That said, some of the other features could be useful to some people, e.g. allowing you to use a lower-resolution mode in games (you select which), which will reduce GPU power demands, and allowing you to lock apps (again, you choose which). I doubt these are things I need, but some people will be pleased with them.

    But I suspect this is partly driven by the popularity of such apps, especially in certain markets, and if it saves some people from installing data-mining crap like Clean Master then it will have done those people some good. ;) And at least this is HTC's own app, unlike Samsung who got Cheetah Mobile of all scummy companies to provide theirs!
