This works great. You can really reset the phone without losing your personal settings. Just delete specific categories of your old files (which should be uploaded anyway) from the phone and the entire device will run smoother. Delete a lot or a little. It's like having a way to not only throw out the trash, or delete junk that the operating system compiles over time (which it does), rather it's being able to delete the good stuff too to just start over on your phone. Clean.

Love it. Had my phone for a year now & always ignored the "storage space is running out, let's clean your phone out." Finally clicked on the notification and the way the app organizes my photos into categories like "delete... blurry photos / memes / duplicates / etc. " made deleting pics much less overwhelming and i finally did it haha. And it goes to the trash bin in case you delete something by accident. Very well done!

This app is very helpful by breaking down all the categories of files, folders, & and junk in general that can safely be moved to your Trash Folder & then deleted permanently... Optimizing your internal storage, increasing your internet speed, and improving the overall function of your phone which can really give you that giddy... just purchased & took it out of the box for the first time feeling!!!!
