Straight-forward interface with no unnecessary bells & whistles. I love when an app does exactly what it claims to do & does so well—especially for a free app, Empty Folder Cleaner is unbelievably easy to use & highly effective 👌 Just click scan, then click delete. That's it! 5 seconds later you'll be notified of the total number of empty folders the app located & removed from your device. Mine is usually around 200. Just an awesome little app I appreciate having on my phone, thanks devs! 😊

Though it's designed not to touch folders with hidden files, could you please add an option to display folders with ONLY a '.nomedia' when scanning? I need to learn them and then I will handle them by myself. ***below is the previous review*** This app removes most empty folders and saves me a lot of time navigating through directories. It's especially useful when I connect my phone to computer to transfer files since I don't need to dig the things I want out from those annoying folders now.

I accidentally removed access to external storage SD card and there's no easy way to restore it. App won't let me select the whole SD drive, insisting on selecting a folder (braindead). Why would I want to just cleanup 1 folder!! Then when none is selected app REMOVES the external storage from Android so no other smarter apps that were already using it can see it. Clearly this is untested highschool project quality software.
