    anyone use one?
    are they necesary?
    i find it helps pics load faster on here when its in the red but i thought app cache would just use the internal memory which i have plenty of...:thinking:

    yeah its not a task killer mate.
    i do use an aggressive manual ram clearer but only before benchmarks to test cpu set-ups... i understand why they arent necesary but this is cache, not ram n im not sure where app cache is stored and/or if its limited
    ill have a read though, thanks man :beer:

    I use CacheCleaner NG from the play store. I have it set to auto run every 3 days. Keeps my caches clean. Maybe I'm being anal about it but it's peace of mind i guess :)

    Clean Master, very simple & intuitive.
    4 modes:
    History-cleans caches
    Tasks- you can unselect tasks you want left alone
    Residual files- App leftovers & Temp files
    Temp APKs

    I made a 1 touch widget, works for me :)

    You can tick each category on or off, if that helps.
