CCleaner helps keep Android devices clean by removing unnecessary files.

CCleaner is a file cleaner, an app manager and system monitor all in one for Android devices. It works on smartphones, tablets and just about any other device that fully supports Android OS. CCleaner has a lot of competition, but user-friendliness is a big reason why this particular app is such a top option.

The heart of CCleaner is its file cleaner, which is powered by an analysis engine. That engine is quite fast even when scanning large areas of internal memory and large SD cards. It scans data caches, browser histories, call logs, messages and more and provides a list of expendable files. You can also choose which files to save or delete either individually or within broader categories. Used regularly, this feature can help ensure that you never run out of storage space or at least know when it’s time to upgrade.

Another useful aspect of CCleaner is its app manager. This lets you view a list of all apps currently installed on your system. You can display them alphabetically or by install size and how much additional space they’re using. You can uninstall apps right from here as well, and there’s an option to uninstall multiple apps at once, which is particularly handy when performing spring cleaning of your device.

The final component of CCleaner is a system monitor. It can inform you about CPU usage, RAM usage, battery life, the amount of free internal memory and so forth. Most users probably won’t use this feature often, but it’s nice to have it so accessible when you find that you do need it.

One downside to CCleaner is that it paywalls two very useful features: the options to perform scans on a schedule rather than manually and the option to find and delete “space-hogging” files. This con is made worse in that there are free options from the competition that include these features.
