After you install an App and start using them, small secondary data files are created automatically. These files are stored inside the device and act as a cache for future use for the apps. Even though these cache files are very small in size initially, they pick up size over a period of time. Cache memory is supposed to speed up app and Android device performance. But too much of cache will have opposite effect. Your device performance will slow down considerably and also you lose lot of internal memory.
There are plenty of cache cleaners available for Androids in the market. But the one which is considered most efficient is App Cache Cleaner. This App cleaner will do a complete scan of all apps inside your device, find the cache files created by all the apps, display the information on the screen and then remove the cache files. App Cache Cleaner is a free app and can be downloaded from Google Play.
- Download and install App Cache Cleaner from Google Play. Open the app and it will perform a full scan. The time to complete the scan depends on the speed of your device, number of apps installed and amount of cache files filled up inside the device. Normally it won’t take more than a few minutes.
- Once the scan is complete, the results will be displayed on the screen in the order of which apps have the largest amount of cache files. Top of the display, you can see the total cache file size.
- Click on the individual apps which will allow you to remove the cache files from Apps individually or else you can get the cache cleared altogether in one go.
