    Default [Review] iCleaner - Clean Up Your iOS Device of Junk


    Most of us simply use our iOS device from day to day, taking its speed and fluidity for granted. What most people don’t pay much attention to would be that the iOS operating system, like all others, still keeps caches and many files become obsolete as they build up over time. These junk files can slow down performance and worse, take up your limited, valuable space.

    If you take a moment to refresh your sources in Cydia today, you will find a new free utility application dubbed iCleaner by iOS developer Exile.90. The application works similarly to the popular CCleaner utility application for Windows and Mac OS X – cleaning the computer of junk files that accumulate and take up space.

    iCleaner is capable of removing all of the following:
    • Safari cookies, browsing history, cache files
    • Application WebClip caches, cookies, temporary files, snapshots, in-depth application file cleanup (useful/important information isn't touched)
    • Log files and crash reports
    • System cache files and databases
    • System temporary files

    iCleaner also features a smart scanner, which can detect if you have specific applications installed, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, which are constantly adding their fair share of files to your iOS device’s storage. The smart scanner will remove in-depth files from these applications that you don’t need, drastically improving loading speeds and performance.

    Using the application is very easy. When you install it, you will find a new application on your home screen, which you can launch to start the system cleanup. After the cleanup is finished, you will be asked to respring the iOS device. Alternatively, if you prefer command lines over graphical user interfaces (GUI), you can use a Terminal client and run the command, “iCleaner” as root to perform its functions. If you don't run it as root, it will not work correctly.

    As far as functionality goes, it does remove unused files from the iOS device as a quick iFile search will show. Everything continues to work correctly after use, which confirms that it only removes files you don’t need and not ones that are critical to an application’s performance. In terms of appearance, the application icon looks very nice on the home screen, supporting the retina display and having a good design.

    Being a free tool, we could recommend this to people that like browsing the Web or using cache-obsessive applications on a daily basis. It's certainly not something you would need to run every single day. This utility would make a good monthly cleanup tool.

    Alright, greatest prank: call Apple store support and pretend you are buying apples. Ask for golden delicious.

    Maybe it's a placebo effect, but this really made a difference. Everything actually works now, even spire/Siri.

    Seems iphone doesn't need to clean up these junks. It has own processor to close idle apps automatically.
