Long gone are the times when phones were only synonym for making remote calls and sending text messages. In fact, the options and advantages that smartphones and tablets offer today are just as advanced as with computers, which means that they will also be the target for many companies to develop their apps and try to reach more clients. The thing is, just like a computer, the operating system of your smartphone or tablet also gets rusty over time and gradually takes up more time to respond, open apps or simply turn itself on. The threats for Android are different from the ones for PC but they are still mostly caused by usage, which is to say due to the apps you install. The more apps you have, the more caches and content you’ll have flooding your system’s memory and the less storage space your phone will have left obviously. This contributes to the aforementioned performance issues and a much reduced battery lifetime.
In the same measure as a registry cleaner can help a computer if used wisely, the same applies to these devices and some providers are already taking the step forward and making their software available for Android and iOS.
CCleaner for Android
CCleaner is quite the well-known and appreciated registry cleaner and gained popularity thanks to its remarkable computer optimization skills. Fortunately, it is also available for Android phones and tablets although it will obviously act a little differently. In fact, with CCleaner for mobile you’ll be able to delete app caches, browser histories, call logs, clipboard content and much more to further optimize your smartphone or tablet. In addition, because sometimes apps are forever forgotten in some dark corner, CCleaner will also give you the ability to remove those less used apps that may be using too much memory.
AVG Cleaner for Android
More commonly known for bringing one of the best free alternatives to often expensive antiviruses, AVG also extended its protection to Android devices. The company’s mobile client aims for quite the interesting aspects such as apps that consume too much battery so you can extend its lifetime, and the option to delete bad photos (blurry, ones that have bad lighting, etc) among other features like removing calling and browser history, caches etc. Another curious fact is that the app will learn what to delete over time in order to provide faster and better scans in the future.
Scanguard is probably the most extensive antivirus and device optimization tool to date as the company provides its client to any device you can think of. Computers, smartphones, tablets – you name it and it is surely supported, each one with its own designated app. Although it cannot be considered a registry cleaner, as there is lack of features that usually characterize this kind of software, it will still be able to improve your Android device’s lifetime. Features available for Android include app locking, a cleaner to free up space and optimize device storage, antivirus, among others.
