Piriform, the team behind the popular cleaning software, CCleaner, has announced that the company will soon be releasing a CCleaner for Android app.
The app promises one-click cleaning for Android devices, ensuring that devices are free of unnecessary files that slow them down.
Presently, CCleaner offers the software for PCs and Macs, on which it helps users easily delete temporary files, cookies, autocomplete form histories, download histories, and log files from Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Opera, and Safari. On Windows, it also removes files in the Recycle Bin, Recent Documents, Log files, and temporary files.
A feature called Registry Cleaner lets users identify and delete registry entries that are not used. Furthermore, an Uninstall feature gives users access to a list of the installed programs on one’s computer and enables them to run their uninstallers.
CCleaner for PC and Mac is free to download, along with the company’s other software, including Defraggler, Recuva, and Speccy. All of Piriform’s products are aimed at optimizing the speed of computers as well as increasing their security and privacy features.
At the moment, the Android version of the CCleaner application is said to be involved in internal tests at the company. No release date has been revealed yet for the app. It is possible that CCleaner for Android will likewise be free to download, just like Piriform’s currently available software.
At the moment, users of Android devices have several options in the Google Play Store for the features that Piriform offers for computers. Among these are CleanMaster (Cleaner) by KSMobile, History Eraser by Infolife LLC, 1Tap Cleaner by Sam Lu, App Cache Cleaner by Infolife LLC, 1-click Cleaner by Opda Team, SD Maid – System Cleaning Tool by Darken, QuickCleaner by Quick_Lab, App Cache Cleaner by Shereworkshop, and Android Delete History by Carl&Jefferson. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich also comes with a cache cleaning tool. CCleaner therefore will have to offer features that will be able to compete against these available apps.
