    HTC's Preview program shows the company is working on a cleaner app called Boost+
    Back in November of last year, we saw HTC introduce a Preview program for loyal users to test hardware and software before they were to be released.

    It's been revealed that this preview program has installed a new application from HTC called Boost+. Just like the other cleaning apps, Boost+ will let you close apps that are running in the background, clear cache files, temporary files, ad files, etc.

    These kind of apps hurt Android more than anything and serve to only further perpetuate the myth that Android is broken and incapable of managing itself. Absolutely ridiculous.

    It really surprises me that Android OEMs are soooooo behind the times with these types of cleaners. I mean, these apps were definitely useful pre-Jelly Bean since Android wasn't smart enough to do this type of stuff when it was needed.

    Now though. . .as you said Chris, it only hurts Android. It ruins battery life and while it could technically free up storage space. . .it's just a bandaid solution
